We will ask you to provide Stewardship with an expression of wishes during your lifetime, to guide us in respect of your remaining balance and any legacy gift you may wish to leave.

You can change this expression of wishes as many times as you like.

You can request donations to UK and overseas churches, Christian charities and secular charities providing they don’t conflict with our Christian objectives, which can be found here.

We do not currently provide payroll giving, but many of our clients choose to select Stewardship as their one chosen charity, transfer the payroll giving funds to their Stewardship account, and do all their giving from there. 

Our Fees

Stewardship is a not-for-profit organisation and our costs are always kept as low as possible. We reinvest any extra income into supporting charitable causes such as church planting and training Christian workers. It’s a joy to partner with you in this Kingdom work.
