Bequests A bequest is a gift of cash or other asset to a designated beneficiary, as provided through your will, which can be either an unrestricted gift or one which is designated or restricted to a specific purpose or ministry. Occasionally, we receive bequests from the estates of our deceased members and friends. As you revise or create your will or living trust, we would encourage you to inform us about any bequest decisions that include Grace. This will help us with long-term planning and allows us the opportunity to thank you and honor you in advance.
Appreciated Securities The gift of appreciated stock securities can provide a two-fold savings of taxes. First, you avoid paying the capital gains taxes on the appreciation of that stock, and secondly, you receive a charitable deduction based on the full fair market value of that stock.
Life Insurance If you wish to make Grace a beneficiary of a life insurance policy which you no longer need, you can make a gift to our ministry while you retain ownership of that policy. If you name Grace as both the owner and beneficiary of an insurance policy, you will be entitled to certain tax advantages.
Life Income Annuities A life income gift allows you to transfer ownership of an asset now and yet continue to receive income from the assets contributed. For example, a gift of cash would be split into two parts: “part gift and part contract.” You would receive a charitable income tax deduction for the “part gift” portion and lifetime income for the “part contract” portion. Gift annuities have sometimes been called “longevity insurance.”
Retirement Assets You may consider making a gift of your retirement assets to Grace however; there are several significant issues to consider when thinking about gifting such assets. If you are considering such a charitable designation, please be sure to consult with a competent attorney or tax professional first.
