Planned giving offers you smart and creative ways to support Jews for Jesus, Israel and God’s Plan for the salvation of the Jewish people, while benefiting your family at the same time. Understanding the opportunities available allows you to multiply the impact of your generosity in ways that are simple, flexible, cost-effective, and powerful.
You can increase your charitable gifts—and reduce your capital gains taxes—by giving assets other than cash.
You can give from your IRA without any federal tax liability, as long as the gifts are qualified charitable distributions. Distributions qualify for all or part of your required minimum distribution. Do you want to leverage your IRA to give to Jews for Jesus and receive significant tax benefits in return?
Lifetime income gifts are wonderful solutions for followers of Jesus who wish to give in a substantial way. You can give cash or other assets, receive an immediate tax deduction at the time of your gift, and guarantee steady income for the rest of your life.
A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) allows you to plan your giving, combining favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support Jews for Jesus whenever you choose.
You can add Jews for Jesus as a beneficiary for any bank or investment account, including a DAF, qualified retirement plan or IRA. Naming Jews for Jesus as a beneficiary allows funds to pass free of income or estate taxes.
You can include a bequest to Jews for Jesus in your will or trust as an unrestricted or designated gift. Percentage expressed gifts will maintain value relative to your estate. There is currently no upper limit on the estate tax deduction for your charitable bequests.
When I sold my business, I subsequently wrote the largest check I’ve ever written in my life. Unfortunately, it was not a check to a faith-driven ministry like Jews for Jesus, but instead was a check to the IRS. If I had known then what I know now about Planned Giving, not only would my tax liability have been greatly reduced but my charitable giving could have made a much more significant impact for the Kingdom.
