Planned Giving / Great Commission Society

Blanche Rigby, known as “Bee” to her friends and congregation at First Presbyterian Church in Kingsport, Tennessee, loved her church and serving the Lord. She served as an Elder and taught Bible classes at First Presbyterian. And, she had a strong heart for global mission. 

When Bee died at age 98, her legacy and tireless support for mission lived on. Prior to her death, Bee met with her estate attorney and created a planned gift that, after her own resurrection day, allowed continued support of her mission passion. The Outreach Foundation used part of her gift to send study Bibles to pastors in the rural parts of Central and Western China. Bee wanted to ensure that the important work she began would live on. And it does!

The Outreach Foundation offers a unique opportunity to mission-minded stewards like Bee. Joining The Outreach Foundation’s Great Commission Society gives you the ability to strengthen the work of the global church and provide hope to children and adults for years to come. Members of the Great Commission Society have made a bequest in their will or living trust to The Outreach Foundation. 

Several simple sentences in your estate documents are all that’s needed. Your attorney or The Outreach Foundation staff can help you with the words. Through your planned gift, you can give away cash, property, securities, or real estate and designate it for the specific mission passion in your heart.
