Other Ways to Give
Amazon Smile and Wishlist
Purchase from Amazon and give to Refuge. The Amazon Smile program donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organizations of your choosing. Start here to make Refuge your default charity.
Refuge has created an Amazon wishlist for items that we can use for ministry. Items on this list will help us improve hospitality efforts, educate volunteers and churches about the needs of our refugee communities, and help improve existing ministries for which additional resources are needed, including kid’s clubs, our new artisan sewing room, and our youth music classes. You can see current needs here.
Corporate Matching Gift Programs
Corporate Matching Gift Programs are an excellent way to multiply your gift to Refuge and expand your reach to the most unreached peoples around the globe. Check with your Human Resources Department to determine if there is a matching gift program for organizations recognized by the I.R.S. as a 501(c)(3) public charity.
Funds, Stocks, Mutual Funds, and Real Estate
A Refuge Fund has been setup through the National Christian Foundation of Kentucky for gifts of cash, stocks, mutual funds, or real estate. Gifts of stocks and mutual funds provide Refuge with the full value of donated stock while also allowing donors to avoid tax on its appreciated value.
One of the most meaningful and effective ways to advance God’s Kingdom in the future is to plan a gift to Refuge as part of your overall estate and financial plans. In making this kind of gift, you leave a personal legacy that helps ensure Refuge’s continued impact in the years ahead.
