Give, and It Shall
Be Given Unto You
Sponsoring a child isn’t the only way you can make a difference with VisionTrust.
There are many ways to give — find one that works for you below.
Planned giving can help you accomplish your giving goals, increase the impact of your gift, and may reduce taxes. Here are some examples of planned giving to consider:
Will or Trust
It’s simple to name your favorite ministries as beneficiaries of your financial accounts, as well as your will or trust, when you pass on. Naming a ministry as the beneficiary of your tax-deferred retirement accounts is often the best way to make a bequest because the ministry can receive the funds tax-free.
Appreciated assets include publicly–traded stock, closely–held stock, bonds, mutual fund shares, and real estate. By giving appreciated stock or real estate directly to ministry, you receive a charitable deduction for the fair market value and avoid capital gains tax.
Other Charitable Giving Tools
Other options for planned giving include:
- Giving from your IRA
- Donor Advised Funds (DAFs)
- Giving when selling a business
- Charitable Gift Annuities (CGAs)
- Charitable Remainder Trusts (CRTs)
- Giving life insurance
Wise counsel can help you determine the best giving option for today and the future. For guidance in this area, we work with Orchard Alliance, a planned giving leader and trusted partner of VisionTrust. For questions or help getting started, click the link below.
