Why an endowment gift?

An endowment gift may be designated for a specific purpose.  You might wish to make the endowment gift in your honor or in memory of another person while providing long-term support of the ministry that God has placed on your heart.  We can help you make a gift that creates a legacy of remembrance for you and your loved ones.

Endowment gifts are not just for wealthy people.  Anyone can make a gift that lasts permanently or for an extensive period of time.

For additional information on endowment giving or to review information about our endowment plan, please contact us.  We look forward to helping you create your legacy!

Depending upon your gift, you may receive the added benefit of mostly tax-free payments. You will also receive a charitable deduction the year that you set up the gift annuity. When the annuity contract is completed (all recipients have passed away) the remainder will be gifted to our endowment for the charitable purpose you identified.[/wpbucket_acccordion_child][wpbucket_acccordion_child ac_number=”” ac_id=”03″ ac_active=”Inactive” ac_title=”Charitable Remainder Trust”]When you transfer your cash or appreciated property to a charitable remainder trust, the trust will pay you income for your life or a number of years.
