We love our volunteers! Whether you're a family, individual, church group, or (anyone) we'd love to give you an opportunity to serve.
We run on a shoestring budget. The rent collected only covers about 70% of the costs, the remainder is provided through individual donations. God has always provided.
Volunteers help us get both large and small projects completed.
Your tax-deductible donation will help provide meals, rent, and supplies for residents at the Boise Christian Retirement Village.
Do you know about these smart ways to support Boise Christian Homes without writing a check?
Would you like to reduce your tax bill and help retired missionaries and pastors at the same time? Many Christians often overlook these ways to save their checking account and make their donations stretch further.
Giving Appreciated Stock
Why pay Capital Gains taxes on selling stock, leaving you just a portion of its value to spend?
When transferred directly to BCH, all of the capital gains taxes are eliminated for outright stock gifts. Those who itemize can also claim the stock’s full value as a charitable deduction. In turn, BCH pays no taxes to sell it, and our programs then benefit from its full value.
Please contact us for stock transfer instructions
Stocks can also fund a Life Income Gift, such as a charitable gift annuity. Please contact us for an illustration of the benefits you could receive and for special transfer instructions.
IRA Rollover Gifts
Thanks to legislation enacted in 2015, you may be able to transfer a charitable distribution from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to charity. Now that so few Americans can itemize to claim charitable gifts, this is one of your few opportunities to give and still save on taxes.
You must be 70 ½ years old or older.
Your gift counts towards your required minimum distribution but is not included in your taxable income.
Your IRA administrator must make the distribution directly to the charity.
You can also name IRA funds to BCH through a simple change of beneficiary form. IRA funds left to non-spouse heirs are heavily taxed.
Real Estate Gifts
Contact Boise Christian Homes to initiate a real estate gift such as a second home, or contact us to learn more. You can also leave real estate to BCH through your estate plan.*
* All funds donated will be considered funds to Boise Christian Homes, Inc., and will be allocated under the direction of the Board.
