NCF Indiana is all about promoting generosity, and I can feel safe that my gifts will not inadvertently go to an organization that would use those resources for something antithetical to my Christian values. The staff is great, very helpful and always quick to answer questions. I am so grateful that NCF Indiana serves Indianapolis and beyond!

NCF Indiana has taught me the joy of living a life that models Biblical generosity. Our Giving Fund and the newly designed web-site make giving effortless. We love the fact that our charitable dollars are recorded on one year-end statement. That is a beautiful thing for tax purposes! NCF Indiana is a terrific resource for our community.

Money management, including charitable activities, requires confidence in the people advising you. The staff at National Christian Foundation Indiana is intelligent, analytical and genuinely interested in helping others get it right. They listen first.

Although, I have been an advisor for years NCF has enabled me to see how each role is valuable in the work of raising funds for the kingdom of God. So not only can I rely of their expertise to help my clinets, but they see me as an asset and not a hinderance to their work.
I currently use NCF for my own charitable work and find that the ability to give anonymous has been a blessing to my family.

I've been a client/donor with the Indiana branch of NCF since it began and have the highest regard and confidence in what they do and how they do it. II Cor. 9:7 says God loves a cheerful giver, and these fine folks not only help make giving easy, but fun!

Oh my goodness...Ginny makes me feel a part of the family!! Seriously, I MIGHT have to talk with Ginny once a year but she is always so gracious. She along with our financial guys from Ron Blue make giving thru the National Christian Foundation very simple. No question is too unimportant and she ALWAYS acts like she has all the time in the world to spend with me. In this crazy, fast paced world that is a good feeling.

NCF is a fantastic organization! We were introduced to them via Ron Blue and have been using their services for years, primarily for our annual tithing and distributions. Its so much easier from an administrative perspective to give to one organization and then make distributions to multiple others. In addition, they have been a great help in accepting and converting assets. They are always very responsive and a great help to us. Ginny is great! May God continue to bless them!!!

NCF has been an excellent organization to assist me in my charitable giving. In addition to the support from the home office, they have a staff of people to assist you at the local level. The people are prompt, professional and readily accessible. If they don't know the answer to your question(s) they research the information immediately respond with an answer usually the same day. They have made my charitable giving especially when transferring stock easy and help me to maximize my donation.

I was able to meet with the president of this ministry today and was thoroughly impressed with Jim Cotterill's vision and mission for what God has called him to do through NCFI. I will be praying that God will continue to bless this ministry to be a blessing to others.

I had an opportunity to spend time with the founder, Jim Cotterill, and was totally sold on what NCFI does and how they do it. Jim's story is remarkable and a testimony to how when God isn't done with you, it doesn't matter what happens to you. He will bring you through it and use you tho further His kingdom.

Keep doing what you do, your work is amazing and helps countless people silently.

If you ever have a chance to hear Jim's story, do so. You won't be sorry.

Our small Non-profit has benefited from the cost savings and convenience our larger donors receive with this opportunity. Ginny can always be counted on to be quick and informative in dealing with our largest contributors. I have especially appreciated how thoughtfully they have handled the inquiries of our senior stakeholders.

Jim and Ginny do an outstanding job assisting donors and encouraging them in wise stewardship. Their wisdom and guidance has helped me not only as a donor but also as a volunteer with several urban ministries in Indianapolis.

The backup they receive from the national organization is equally outstanding.

I worked with NCF and NCF-Indiana on behalf of two different organizations, and both experiences have been very positive. Service and follow-up are prompt, and whenever NCF can't help with an issue, it's made clear; nothing is "left hanging" in my experience.

We have worked with NCF since its inception in Indianapolis Indiana. Our experience has been outstanding. The staff has been very thorough and attentive to detail.
Their service is definitely one of Kingdom building.
