Stocks & Mutual Funds
If you are currently writing checks to your local church and a ministry, and you also have appreciated stocks or mutual funds in a taxable investment portfolio, you likely have a significant opportunity to pay less tax, give more, improve your personal cash flow, and simplify your giving.
Charitable Gift Annuities
A CGA is a simple arrangement that involves a charitable gift and an annuity. You make the gift (part of which is tax deductible), and then you receive fixed annuity payments each year for the remainder of your life. If you wish, you can have the payments go to a family member or friend instead. We work with the National Christian Foundation (NCF) to set up charitable gift annuities. The annuity is a legally binding contract, and they have never missed an annuity payment.
Many property owners have a heart to give but feel hindered by limited cash flow and ever-growing taxes. If that’s you, we can help you leverage your real estate so you can send more to charity than you thought possible. Gateway Church partners with National Christian Foundation (NCF) to provide comprehensive information regarding your real estate property and giving. Whether you own a beachfront home or a family farm, the team at NCF can help you turn your valuable property into Bibles for evangelism, help for the poor, or anything else God is calling you to support. By giving real estate before the sale, instead of writing checks to charity, you'll improve your cash flow, reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes, and send more to your favorite causes.
If you’re running a business, our Charitable Shareholder strategy allows you to donate a non-voting interest, receive a substantial tax deduction, and still maintain management oversight. If you’re one of the select entrepreneurs who has the opportunity to sell your successful company for a sizeable gain, we can help you maximize your sale—and your impact for charity.
Everyone needs a will and an estate plan, regardless of age or phase of life. This class will make a seemingly complicated process very simple and clear. We’d like to invite you to learn how to build your estate plan and learn to pass godly wisdom (before dollars) to those you value the most. You will also:
- Decide whether you want money to go to the government or charities of your choice, while not decreasing gifts to heirs.
- Save money. On average, a living trust saves $2,400 to $60,000 in probate costs.
- Attain peace of mind—ensure guardianship wishes for your children and distribution of your valuables are fulfilled.
We greatly appreciate you allowing God to work through you to bless another family.
