A newly-planted LCMS congregation for your grandchildren?
...Or a thriving 100+ year-old congregation in your community?
...Or a bountiful harvest in a part of the world where there once was famine?
...Or relief and recovery in a town devastated by a tornado or flood?
What’s your dream? What’s your passion? What’s your plan for God’s work in the world? God has spoken to your heart, but where do you begin?
An opportunity available to you as a way to get started making gifts for God’s work in the world is a Charitable Gift Annuity. It can provide blessings and benefits to you during your lifetime and to ministry at the end of your earthly life.
What are the benefits?
- Joy – Arrange for the area of the Lord’s work that is closest to your heart to receive a gift when you are called to heaven.
- Fixed payments for life – Your gift comes with the assurance of steady, lifelong payments.
- Tax savings – You will receive a charitable deduction on your income tax return in the year you make the gift. In addition, a portion of your regular gift annuity payments will be tax-free.
- Legacy – At the end of your earthly life, the balance of the gift annuity will be used for the Lord’s work wherever you specify – in your congregation or any other LCMS ministry.
One person can change the world. We can help. Please allow one of our Gift Planning Counselors to answer your questions regarding the use of a Charitable Gift Annuity to accomplish your passion for God’s work in the world.
