Make Your Giving Go Further

2/24/2017

 

Technology has made all of our lives easier. Just by using a smartphone, you can talk to people all over the world, check the weather forecast, or reserve a seat on a plane. The true power of the smartphone is how it combines a myriad of tools in a single, sleek device.

As you support your church or favorite ministry, you might be interested in ways to increase your impact. By combining giving tools together, you can multiply the difference you make.

You may already be making annual gifts to the Foundation, your church, or a ministry. Your support is so appreciated! Here are some ways your annual gifts may be combined with other opportunities to make your support for Methodist causes go even further:

A Gift in Your Will

• You can make a gift through your will or trust, which will continue your annual giving to the church forever.

Charitable Gift Annuity

• In addition to your annual gifts, you can make a single gift to fund a charitable gift annuity. You will receive lifetime fixed payments and tax savings.

Charitable Life Estate

• Another way to help a ministry or your church beyond your regular annual giving is with a charitable life estate. You can convey your home to your church or favorite ministry, remain living there, and receive tax benefits.

When you think about all of the tools available to you, you can do more than you might have thought possible. By adding an estate or life income gift to your annual giving, you can benefit from lifetime payments and tax savings.
