Make your wishes known ahead of time, so you’re able to fulfill your faithful, caring, and charitable intentions.
No matter how large or small your estate, a will is a great place to start, ensuring your values are reflected in your planning. It’s a chance to care for those you love: family, friends, the church and missions you care about.
Tax-Smart tip: Do you use Itemized or Standard Deduction on your taxes? A Donor Advised Fund allows you to make a large charitable contribution one tax year, into a fund that you can dispense to your favorite charities over multiple years.
Invest & grow your giving fund tax-free from this account.
Tax-smart tip: Give from your Retirement Fund! Your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift to your chosen charities. Plus, you may satisfy your required minimum distributions and reduce taxable income.
Other types of gifts: stocks and bonds, real estate, life insurance, farm commodities, and valuable collections.
- Can help avoid capital gains on appreciated assets
- Receive a deduction for the full fair market value of the asset at the time of the gift
- Are deductible for up to 30% of adjusted gross income, with excess carried forward up to five years
- Can be given directly to Oxford Circle CCDA or through the Mennonite Foundation, an affiliate of Everence Financial. Please ask for Randy Nyce at 215-703-0111 for more information.
Do you have savings you would like to give in the future, but you still need income from?
A gift annuity is a gift planning option that lets you share your heart for our mission, receive a tax deduction now, and also receive steady payments for life.*
Make a gift that will also provide you and your family income.
Set aside and direct your assets to our organization and to your heirs – or even back to you – in a way that best fits your needs.
