I want to see adolescents in the foster care and juvenile detention systems triumph over tragedy, conquer crises, and grow up to be healthy productive members of society.

We would love to see lives touched by Jesus through the Gospel being shared in schools once again. God plays a huge role in our children’s lives, and we are hopeful that local churches and ministries can play a big part in helping this become a reality.

4 days ago By Evan Lange

Most financial advisors, attorneys, and CPAs know the benefits of using a donor advised fund (DAF). However, DAFs are still often underutilized by the public. While many may have used DAFs for large net worth clients a few decades ago, DAFs are still a useful tool which many people can use to help grow their generosity. Here is a short list you can use to show clients the benefits of using a DAF to grow their giving with less hassle: Anyone can open a DAF online in a matter of minutes, and The Signatry requires no minimum deposit or balance upon starting a fund.…

Writing Last Checks: Broken and Obedient Hearts

2 weeks ago By Jessica Winter

“I feel more than a sadness. Honestly, I am even angry. But what can we even do?” My husband and I have been having a lot of discussion lately about what generosity looks like for our marriage. And the more we have dug in, the more God seems to break our hearts. Our vision statement is still in the works, but it sounds something like being invisible champions for the unseen, the forgotten. The tension we feel between big vision but also the great sorrow puts us in an uncomfortable position. We know the truth—our generosity is not the type…

Going Beyond Cash: The New Era in Fundraising

4 weeks ago By Kristin Hammett

As a ministry, an obvious part of your role is to raise funds. What you may not know is the variety of options that donors have to give from! There are two options offered by The Signatry which may be helpful to you and your donors. They are a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) and a Charity/Designated Fund. A DAF enables donors to make occasional gifts to a fund, and then to recommend grants from that fund to the organizations of their choice throughout the year. It is similar to a family setting up a private foundation, but with much less…

1 month ago By Joe Williams

Two of the most popular charitable vehicles are donor advised funds and private foundations, but which is best to use in your generosity journey?  That depends. Nearly $70 billion in grants to charity came through private foundations and donor advised funds (DAFs) in 2017.

The Signatry Celebrates Nineteen Years

1 month ago By Bill High

Can you believe it’s 19 years? Nineteen years ago, I resigned from the law firm to be part of starting what was then called the Servant Foundation.  On June 1, 2000, my first day on the job consisted of going downstairs to my basement office, clicking on my desktop computer and preparing articles of incorporation, bylaws and an application for tax-exempt status.  While it wasn’t glamorous, it was a start. Not too long after, I found myself out on the streets, talking to as many people as I could about this movement of generosity.  Just a few years later, my…
