Estate Planning and Planned Gifts
As a steward of the Lord's gifts entrusted to you, now is the time to plan for the distribution of your assets after your death. Ask yourself these questions:
- What plans have I made to distribute my assets after I'm gone?
- Will my children receive more than is good for them?
- Does my estate plan include a gift to Home Missions and other charities?
- Will the IRS or Revenue Canada be the single largest beneficiary of my estate? (They could be, unless you legally direct part of your estate to government approved charitable organizations.)
Do you have retirement accounts? If so, you should know that tax deferred accounts such as IRAs, 401ks, 403bs, and others are only income tax deferred, not tax forgiven. Leaving these balances to your children will present a significant income tax burden. If, however, they are left to a charity such as Home Missions, the full value of the gift without income taxes assessed can be passed on to Home Missions.
Lifetime Planned Gifts: Home Missions gladly receives planned gifts. You can fund current mission efforts and provide a lifetime consistent income for yourselves through the prudent purchase of a Charitable Gift Annuity with Home Missions, using cash, stock, or property. You can name Home Missions as a beneficiary as part of your will or estate planning. It may be that you are interested in some other method of distribution of your assets now or in the future.
Home Missions partners with the Barnabas Foundation in the USA and Christian Stewardship Services in Canada, both of which have professionals on staff covering all of North America. These professionals serve you at no cost to you and can provide advice so that you can accomplish your wishes through your estate plan, no matter how complex your circumstances.
