Having received over $9 billion in contributions, and rating as one of the most efficient charities in the country, the National Christian Foundation (NCF) announces its newly reorganized Middle TN council for growing generosity in the community. The National Christian Foundation, Middle TN will provide donors with hands-on, charitable giving solutions to simplify and multiply their effectiveness and to prosper the Nashville area.
This is an exceptional alternative to other funds and foundations. The Middle TN giving council will now be part of the National Christian Foundation, Heartland network, the most established and largest NCF affiliate in the country. NCF Heartland’s personal client services and proven resources will come alongside Nashville’s advisory board and staff to inspire new vision, innovation and connectedness through generosity. Mid-TN board chairman W. Keith Phillips says, “We are making concerted efforts to grow faith-inspired giving in this community, and this partnership with NCF Heartland allows us greater depth to do more. We realize many people need their giving to be simplified, multiplied and protected; utilizing NCF does all that and more.” Clients can give non-liquid gifts including real estate, corporate and closely-held stock easily. Non-profits can expand their marketing and increase their capacity to receive. NCF of Middle TN will host informational events this fall for givers, ministries and financial advisors in Nashville. Bill High, the CEO of NCF Heartland, said “We are excited about the opportunity in Middle TN. If we see giving increase (from 2% of GDP) up to a mere 4%, we’ll see an added $400 billion per year given across the country. Ultimately, we could see countless lives affected – children helped, the homeless fed, and the poor lifted.” Nashville has potential to be the key to a whole, new vision for loving our neighbors. The National Christian Foundation, the 9th largest charity in the country, is a donor-advised fund organization with over $2 billion in assets. More remarkably, over its history, NCF has distributed $6 billion in the form of grants. Its sister organization, iDonate.com, is a fundraising software service for non-profits. This innovation of non-cash giving through iDonate.com is changing the landscape of how and what can be gifted to live generously. With unique tools like the iDonate.com and with exceptionally versed staff focused on each area of the flow of resources, values get multiplied in this broad and strategic network of giving.
