We all want to write a life story that matters — a story of a world made better because we were in it. You can write that story with a gift in your will or other gift from your estate.
Legacy giving is a simple and highly impactful way to support TEAM’s Mission. Just one gift can send new missionaries, start new churches and reach souls for generations to come! That’s true, regardless of your age or the size of your estate.
Planning Your Legacy Gift
There are many ways to plan your legacy gift. Some types provide an income to you and many types help reduce your taxes. Legacy gifts come in different forms:
- Estate or Deferred Gifts are primarily made by naming TEAM as a beneficiary through a will, living trust, life insurance policy or retirement plan. These gifts don’t affect your lifestyle now and can be changed.
- Life Income Gifts such as Charitable Gift Annuities or Charitable Remainder Trusts are irrevocable and funded with cash, securities, or other appreciated assets such as real estate. The gift is made in exchange for an income for life or for a fixed number of years for one or more beneficiaries. The remainder of the gift would be distributed to TEAM at the termination of the contract.
