Building Love > Ways to Give & Connect
With many of our events shifting to virtual, the way we come together today is different, but we are still a community. Fortunately our financial partners, Thrivent and Vanco, as well as the ELCA, have provided us with the tools to strengthen and maintain that connection. Please review the information provided below and select the gifting method that best suits you.
In response to the blessings of God, and in celebration of Agapé † Kure Beach Ministries, we'd like to encourage you to support this important “Go Camp! Building Love” appeal with a faithful gift. We have provided a pledge form for you at the bottom of the page. If e-giving is not an option for you, please send your gift(s) to:
A†KB Ministries Building Love | 1369 Tyler Dewar Lane | Fuquay-Varina, NC 27526
Vanco Faith Mobile App

This tax qualified gift planning tool is used by many to increase their present monthly cash flows beyond what normal CD's or Money Market accounts can provide. At the time of your death it then leaves a wonderful tax free gift the charity you have designated.
Simple or trust type wills are also a secure and safe way to make sure your gift is delivered to the charity of your choice exactly as you had wished. Each person has a different situation, but there will be a time when each of us will want our will to provide for those we care about in ways we planned and desired.
In some cases advanced estate planning is needed to adequately provide for your wishes upon your death. We can help assist with that planning and by working with your professional advisors be sure your wishes and gifts for our ministry are used and set forth according to your wishes.
