Barnabas Foundation Membership Information

Beginning with the Bible
"Barnabas...owned a tract of land, sold it and brought the money and laid it at the apostles' feet."
Acts 4:36-37

Inspired by Barnabas and this act of love and gratitude, a small group of professionals formed the Barnabas Foundation over a quarter of a century ago. Several hundred Christian member organizations now support and rely on the foundation for planned giving expertise.

Just as Barnabas used the assets he had to further God's work, today Barnabas Foundation helps Christian donors give to ministries that are important to them. It advances God's kingdom by offering quality planned giving and estate planning services.

The professional staff works with member organizations and their donors, to complete complicated and unique gifts. The foundation also acts as a giving channel to the donor's favorite charities and provides Trustee services for Charitable Trusts.


Volunteers contribute to the quality of care that residents receive in a variety of ways. Opportunities for volunteers include assisting with a variety of activities, folding laundry, feeding residents and serving on boards. All volunteers receive a general orientation and have a TB skin test for health/safety reasons. If you are interested in volunteering in some capacity, please contact the Activity Director at 616-453-2475 extension 212.


We seek God's continuing guidance to meet the needs of our residents. Please remember the needs of our residents and their families, our staff and our volunteers in your prayers. Your prayer support is deeply appreciated.

Thank you for considering these giving opportunities, and partnering with us in our quest to serve those who have faithfully served us for so many years.
