Planned Giving

Putting our gifts into His plan.

It's not change for the moment, it's change for eternity.

Whether you would like to put your donation to work today or design your gift so that it will benefit our ministry after you are called to your eternal home, you can find a charitable plan which may qualify for significant tax savings, provide for your family, and support the efforts of Kingdom Workers. Consider the many ways you could support future programs of Kingdom Workers through any of the following methods.

Planned Giving Methods

A charitable bequest via your will or revocable trust

Charitable bequests are an easy way to leave money to Kingdom Workers in your will or living trust. Simply specify a dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or specific assets or real estate you wish to bequeath to Kingdom Workers.

A life-income gift that names Kingdom Workers as a remainder beneficiary, such as a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust

A charitable gift annuity not only will provide you with regular payments and allow us to further our work, but when you create a charitable gift annuity you can receive a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize.

There are two ways to receive payments with charitable remainder trusts:

  • The annuity trust pays you, each year, the same dollar amount you choose at the start. Your payments stay the same, regardless of fluctuations in trust investments.
  • The unitrust pays you, each year, a variable amount based on a fixed percentage of the fair market value of the trust assets. The amount of your payments is redetermined annually. If the value of the trust increases, so do your payments. If the value decreases, however, so will your payments.

A gift or assignment of qualified retirement plan assets, such as an IRA, 401(k), or 403(b)

Name Kingdom Workers as a beneficiary to all or a portion of your retirement plan benefits. You simply fill out a form often offered through your retirement plan office or HR department that is entirely separate from your will, which makes this an easy way to give.

A gift of life insurance or certificate of deposit

Name Kingdom Workers as a beneficiary of life insurance policies or CDs after you’re gone. You would need to fill out a form that lists Kingdom Workers as the beneficiary to all or part of your policy or CD.

A gift of real estate

A gift of real estate helps us continue our work for years to come. You may qualify for tax deductions, would no longer have to deal with property upkeep, and wouldn’t have the hassle of selling the real estate.

A gift to our endowment

An endowment gift has both immediate and long-term benefits to Kingdom Workers. Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at Kingdom Workers. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support. Endowment gifts are, quite simply, gifts that keep on giving.

Planned giving is for everyone.
