Frequently Asked Questions
How is the Biblical History Center funded?
Half the Center’s operating budget comes from admissions and half comes from donations and memberships. Our operating budget is $767,000 per year. Donations are not only appreciated, but essential to the Center’s ability to operate and grow.
What is your fundraising priority?
The Center needs to broaden its base of support. We need more annual members and we need more money for operations. If you are excited about the way founder Dr. Jim Fleming’s work helps us to find relevance for today from those who lived thousands of years ago, please join today.
Is my gift tax deductible?
Absolutely! BHC is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.

Do you have an endowment?
In celebration of our 10th anniversary in 2016, the board of directors established an endowment account with the Community Foundation of the Chattahoochee Valley, based in Columbus, Ga.
Any donor wishing to invest in the future of the BHC may make a gift of any size at any time to the endowment. For many of our long-time donors and members, making a gift to the endowment is a natural addition to their annual support and serves as a symbol of their commitment to BHC in perpetuity.
May I make a planned gift?
Sure! A planned gift is a philanthropic gift that is funded either during your lifetime or after your death. The gift is part of a larger estate-planning process in which you decide how certain assets are distributed. There are many financial instruments available and an estate planner can help you. This allows you to take care of loved ones and still support organizations like BHC.
