There are as many different ways to support the Evansville Rescue Mission as there are needs for your support. Planning a gift is more than just finding a need. There are a lot of factors to consider.

Two of the most popular planned giving vehicles are a bequest and a charitable gift annuity. Here’s a short summary as to how both of these planned giving options could benefit you as a donor:

Your goal: Defer a personal gift until after your lifetime.

Result: Put a bequest in your will. In other words, donate to the Rescue Mission either cash, specific property, or a share of the residue of your estate.

Benefit to you: Your donation is fully tax-exempt from federal estate tax.

Your goal: Receive guaranteed fixed income that is partially tax-free.

Result: Create a charitable gift annuity.

Potential benefits to you: Current and future savings on income taxes, plus fixed, stable payments.

Other planned giving vehicles include gifts of retirement assets, charitable lead trusts, deferred charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, gifts of life insurance, gifts of real estate, and bargain sales.
