We would love to have you come and spend time with us. We have volunteer opportunities in our kitchen, grounds, and in general maintenance. You could also organize a group to come out and complete a service project. There are so many opportunities to serve here, and they are all rewarding. Please contact us if you have an idea for a service project or to set up a time to come visit.
If you are unable to volunteer for whatever reason, but still would like to help us take care of retirement aged kingdom workers and at-risk youth, please donate to our general fund. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Other Giving Options
If you are physically at the Boise Christian Retirement Village you can put cash into the donation box located in our dining area. You even stay for lunch or a card game.
Checks can be mailed to our main office:
Boise Christian Homes Inc.

Your tax-deductible donation will help provide meals, rent, and supplies for residents at the Boise Christian Retirement Village. It also helps cover operational costs and all of our outreach initiatives. We seek wisdom from God to be good stewards of everything He provides.
Do you know about these smart ways to support Boise Christian Homes without writing a check?
Give 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. 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.
