Two of the most popular planned giving vehicles are bequests and charitable gift annuities.

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 passing
Result: Put a bequest in your will. In other words, donate to your local Mission either in cash, specific property, or with 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


• Gifts of retirement assets • Charitable lead trusts • Deferred charitable gift annuities • Charitable remainder trusts • Gifts of life insurance • Gifts of real estate • Bargain sale • Donor Advised Funds

We’d be honored for an opportunity to talk with you and to work with your professional advisors as you contemplate planned giving options.
