We are not supposed to boast about big plans (James 4:15), but as God’s stewards it sure helps to have a strategy for dealing with the resources He has entrusted to us.
If you need to create a financial plan for the future but are not sure where to begin, the Jews for Jesus Stewardship Department can help. If you complete the enclosed card and return it to us, we will be happy to send you information on preparing for the future through estate planning and gift annuities.
If you don’t know what a gift annuity is or how it can help you plan: A gift annuity is a permanent agreement between you and the charitable organization of your choice. You contribute cash (or appreciated assets) and the interest from your gift provides you with income for life and, if you are married, for that of your spouse. You decide whether you’ll begin receiving the income immediately (as soon as the annuity is established) or at a future time of your choosing.
If you decide to establish a gift annuity with Jews for Jesus, you will receive a regular income from your gift. Then when you go to be with the Lord, the balance of the funds will go to the work of Jews for Jesus, bringing the gospel to the Jewish people.
Unless you specifically request otherwise, all planned gifts” (bequests, gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, etc.) go into an endowment fund. We don’t spend the original gifts, but only the income. That way, friends can continue contributing to our evangelistic projects long after they have gone to be with the Lord.
If you would like more information to help you create or update your plan, please return the enclosed card to us.
