Continue Your Life’s Story

Gifts that last beyond your lifetime for the Gospel

For many, your own journey of faith has been nurtured and grown through your outreach to international students through the ministry of IFI. On this page, there are three ways that your financial commitment to the mission of IFI can be a legacy, the impact of which could continue to work beyond your lifetime. The IFI development department can help you plan a legacy gift that will continue “your story” of involvement in this mission into the future.

Dave and Becky, long-time IFI partners, wrote IFI into their will this year.

When making a legacy gift, you support the mission of IFI that is so close to your heart. At your request, we can supply specific language that you or your attorney can use to ensure that your gift impacts international student outreach through IFI for years to come.
