Why the BA is participating in GivingTuesday on December 3rd

GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world.

This year, GivingTuesday falls on December 3, and the BA is participating. GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.

Follow our Facebook page as we will be posting more information starting mid-November.

Because of you, several restoration and repair projects are moving forward here at the BA! Thank you for joining with us to preserve the original purpose of the Benevolent Association, to rightly care for this refuge, and to support the holy work of Christian Science nursing.

Your gift to the BA’s general fund supports this work, and will also help us complete even more projects. We are beginning studies on all of our buildings, which will enable us to further prioritize restoration and repair.

The accompanying photos show current progress. The new patient lifter is in action, ensuring the safety and comfort of patients as they are transferred form one location to another. Also, the flat roof above the Dining Room is being repaired to stop multiple leaks to the areas below.

Your loving embrace of the BA and those we serve is deeply appreciated!

Help ensure the availability of Christian Science nursing for future generations and receive lifetime payments at an attractive interest rate.
 
A charitable gift annuity is easy to create and doesn’t require a lot of money. With a gift annuity you simply transfer funds to the BA in exchange for lifetime payments. You and/or a designated loved one will receive a fixed, quarterly payment at an attractive rate of return for life. Your annuity rate and your payment don’t fluctuate with the stock market, interest rates or inflation. It is set at the time your gift is made and never changes.
 
The age of the annuitant determines the payment rate: the older the annuitant, the higher the rate. The rates offered by the BA are based on the rates recommended by the American Council on Gift Annuities. The minimum contribution is $5,000.
 
For questions or to learn about the new, higher gift annuity rates, please contact Jennie Christensen, Director of Development at 800-662-9937 ext 2116 or jchristensen@chbenevolent.org.

The greatest gift

Of all the opportunities to give to the Benevolent Association, by far the most important is your consecrated and inspired prayer in support of the BA and its healing purpose. Your metaphysical work on behalf of the BA is seen and felt through lives transformed and redeemed, strengthened spiritual understanding, and freedom from limitation.

In his article, “The Christian Science Benevolent Association,” from the January 25, 1919 Christian Science Sentinel, Edward A. Merritt shares the importance of prayerfully cherishing the right idea about the BA:

“…it is the function of the Benevolent Association to reveal and demonstrate by the divine Principle of Science that which will reverse the false belief of any patient seeking solace under its shadow, and it will reveal harmonious man. Let us, therefore, get the right idea about the Benevolent Association as a divine idea, spiritual in its quality and character….When the right idea is understood, it will accomplish the work which Mrs. Eddy intended. In no other way can its success be realized. It must be done according to Principle.”

Your prayerful work for the Benevolent Association blesses all those who call upon the services of the BA. We are most grateful for your loving support.
