One of the discoveries I’ve made in my 16+ years as KBF president is a large number of Kentucky Baptist church members do not know to whom to turn for information about simple, basic but important estate stewardship issues, and about Christian estate stewardship in particular.
Among the reasons the Kentucky Baptist Foundation was established sixty seven years ago in 1945 as the “trust agency” for Kentucky Baptists was to provide Kentucky Baptist church members a reliable resource to which to turn for information about their basic estate stewardship and charitable gift planning questions. The information we provide is not legal or tax advice. Church members will still need their own advisors.
KBF staff members are available to provide information by telephone, by email and by an in person visit in our office or at the church member’s home.
We can be contacted in any of the following ways: (1) call toll free (KY only) telephone number 866.489.3533 or 502.489.3533; (2) write us at P.O. Box 436389, Louisville, KY 40253-6389; or (3) browse our website www.kybaptistfoundation.org for email contacts.
If you prefer to browse the website, before contacting us or in lieu of contacting us, you may find the information you need, because the website was designed to be a user friendly 24/7 source of information about estate planning, charitable gift planning and legacy gift planning as well as information about the services of the KBF to church members and to churches.
Let me also encourage you (1) to follow us and “like” us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/KentuckyBaptistFoundation; we post articles regularly about estate stewardship and others giving ideas; (2) subscribe to the Western Recorder print or on line version to which Laurie Valentine and I contribute articles on a regular basis; (3) follow me on Twitter @KBFBarry; and (4) call us to subscribe to our quarterly newsletter, Living Legacy.
Please know your Kentucky Baptist Foundation has stood “steadfast and solid since 1945” and continues to be that “somebody you can turn to” for information by the communication method most convenient and desirable to you to answer your simple, basic but important estate stewardship and charitable and legacy gift planning questions.
