Crops and Livestock

Crops and Livestock
Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest. (John 4:35).

Many farmers and ranchers are using their crops and livestock to invest in a spiritual harvest; helping hurting people in the name of Jesus. For some, making a direct gift of crops or livestock to Samaritan’s Purse before the sale provides superior tax benefits and allows for a larger gift to ministry. Samaritan’s Purse is able to sell the commodity and apply the full amount to ministry. The donor may avoid both income tax and self-employment tax on the value of the gift.

This act of stewardship can be a joyful response to God’s blessing and a strategic use of God’s resources to reach people with the Gospel.
