Legacy Giving

What legacy will you leave?

Throughout your life you have supported the work of the church, but did you know that you can continue to support it after you are gone?

Your planned gift will support missionaries, resource new churches, feed hungry children, and provide for local congregations. Planned gifts fund programs and ministries that lay a foundation for the next generation. The RCA has a bright future because of people like you!

Join the Van Bunschooten Society!

The Van Bunschooten Society was formed to recognize and express gratitude to the passionate and faithful stewardship of those who follow the lead of the Rev. Elias Van Bunschooten. In 1814, he became the first person to give to the RCA through an estate plan. Since then, many others have followed his lead by supporting what God is doing through the RCA in their estate plan or with any other planned gift.

Often there are significant tax advantages to giving this way. Also, planned gifts can be arranged to produce an income to you for life. To learn more, please view the resources below:



Please contact Amanda Bruehl at (866) 356-0829, or development@rca.org. A skilled member of our team will walk you through the process of making a planned legacy gift to the Reformed Church in America.

The Barnabas Foundation provides planned giving services at no charge to our constituents. 

If you would like to speak with one of the Barnabas Foundation attorneys, we would be pleased to make these arrangements for you. The Barnabas representative will speak with you in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
