We all want to write a life story that matter — 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 the Gospel work you care about. 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.
How to Plan Your Legacy Gift
There are multiple ways to structure a legacy giving plan. It’s important to seek advice from an estate planning professional who will help you maximize your gift’s effectiveness. Some types of legacy gifts can return income to you, and many types reduce tax liabilities. There are three broad types of planned gifts:
- Gifts in your will
- Gifts of appreciated assets
- Gifts which return funds or benefits to you
