Contributions Through Your Will
Through your will, you can have an impact on the lives of others, even after your death. Your will can continue a legacy of caring and making a difference.
If you decide to support Harvest Time Ministries, Inc. through your will, you can specify a particular amount of money or an asset such as stock or property. Consider giving the remainder or a portion of the remainder of your estate after expenses and gifts to your loved ones have been paid out.
The interest in real estate or a trust designated initially for the lifetime benefit of a loved one could be specified for a gift. Sometimes individuals prefer making a contingent gift that takes effect only under certain circumstances (for example, "If my spouse does not survive me,"). Ask your attorney for further information.
What if you already have a will? Often you can add a bequest to Harvest Time Ministries, Inc. to your existing will simply by consulting your attorney about an amendment known as a "codicil." When you have completed your will or added a provision for Harvest Time Ministries to your current will, we hope you’ll let us know so we can express our thanks!
Giving through a Living Trust
If you would like to create an estate plan that allows some privacy and has additional features, a living trust may be something you wish to discuss with your attorney. A gift to the Harvest Time Christian Boarding School from such a trust can be arranged upon your death, just as with a will.
When setting up your gift with your attorney please use the following designation: Harvest Time Ministries, Inc. 4 Charles West Blvd, Clayton, AL36016.
These are just a few of the gift-giving options that are available to you. Estate planning can be very personal and complicated. Harvest Time Ministries, Inc. recommends that you consult your attorney or financial advisor before taking any action."

Product Donations If you have something specific you would like to offer the residents, please let us know. Retailers have donated cooking classes, movie tickets, or other activities for the residents. These opportunities are limited due to the very busy schedule of the residents because while they are here in the program, their focus must be on their counseling and classes.
Individuals may also donate the following products and materials from their own resources or from a product “drive.” All donated items are stored in our “Blessings Closet”, so that girls with little or no monetary support may have access to items that they need on a daily basis:
* Due to young age of most of our residents, clothes that are current and youthful are appreciated.
Email to find out how you can donate products.
