One question that is always in the forefront of estate or gift planning, "How can I be sure my gift is secure?" Blessings of Hope has partnered with the Everence Foundation to underwrite our planned giving instruments. With over $4 billion in assets, you can be assured that the very best financial management is in place before, during and after your gift is made.
In association with Everence Charitable Services and underwritten by the Everence Foundation, Charitable Gift Annuities, Endowments, Charitable Lead Trusts and Charitable Remainder Trusts empower YOU to help Blessings of Hope carry forward the message of HOPE.
Gift plans are offered by Everence Charitable Services, administered by Everence Trust Company and/or Everence Foundation, a donor-advised foundation that has served individuals, congregations and institutions since 1952.
Not only do you have options for how your gift will be used, you also have options on what to give and how to give. There are gifts that cost you nothing now, gifts that pay you income, and gifts that allow you to decide what happens when.
Through a provision in your written and executed will, you can make a gift in the form of cash, securities, real estate or personal property. There are many types of bequests. Choose the one that best fits your needs and intentions.
Naming Blessings of Hope as the full or partial beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan asset such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, Keogh, profit-sharing pension plan or other donor-advised funds, will accomplish your charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings.
You can turn underperforming assets (stock, cash in a savings account, CDs, savings bonds, etc.) into a gift to Blessings of Hope that provides income to you. Your Charitable Gift Annuity will give you quarterly, fixed payments for life and tax benefits, too.
If you're 70 ½ or older, you can make a gift directly from your IRA to Blessings of Hope. In addition to the benefits of giving to charity, a QCD excludes the amount donated from taxable income, which is unlike regular withdrawals from an IRA. Keeping your taxable income lower may reduce the impact to certain tax credits and deductions, including Social Security and Medicare.
When you donate appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares instead of cash, you'll receive charitable deductions at full, fair market value while eliminating capital gains taxes completely!
Designate Blessings of Hope as a beneficiary to receive all or a portion of the balance of your Donor Advised Fund (DAF) through your fund administrator. You also can make a grant to us at any time from your donor-advised fund.
Name Blessings of Hope as the beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy; donate an existing, paid-up life insurance policy you no longer need; or purchase a new life insurance policy and name Blessings of Hope as the owner and beneficiary.
Like stock and the fair market value of gifts of appreciated assets such as real estate can be deducted from your income tax today and reduce your estate taxes in the future.
There are many other ways to support Blessings of Hope through a planned giving vehicle. Charitable Gift Annuities, Charitable Trusts, Life Insurance and more may be good options for you. We can show you creative ways to use your assets to benefit Blessings of Hope, while at the same time preserving the benefits of those assets for you and your family.
