How to benefit from Planned Giving
There are several creative ways to support Missionary Ventures’ efforts to reach the unreached.
Gift annuities enable you to provide a gift of $1,000 or more and reap the tax benefits of a charitable donation and still receive steady income from the interest on the gift.
The benefits of donating appreciated stock and mutual funds are very appealing. By doing so, you are able to avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciation, and are also able to claim a charitable deduction for the full market value of the security on the date of the gift.

Gifts of Closely Held Stock and Assets
Owners of closely held corporations can have a problem getting money out of their businesses for personal use. However, owners can receive a substantial benefit from their companies, avoid paying taxes, and help reach the unreached for the Lord in the process.
Gifts of Real Estate
Gifts of appreciated real property such as undeveloped land, farms, or personal residences may be transferred by deed with no liability for income or estate taxes on the appreciation.
Gifts of Personal Property or Other Assets
Collectibles, paintings and antiques are valuable assets that can serve as excellent donations to Missionary Ventures.
Life Insurance Gifts
Making Missionary Ventures the beneficiary of a life policy is simple. The owner continues to pay the premiums, as if it were a gift. Some policies premiums have been completely paid, making these a great way to give to Missionary Ventures without affecting current cash flow.
You can temporarily contribute income from securities or other property and benefit from substantial income tax or estate tax benefits.
Gift by Will, Annuity or Living Trust
A bequest is a traditional way to provide help for Missionary Ventures. With a gift through your will or living trust, you retain full use of your gift property during your life.
Benefits from IRAs and Pensions
Your estate can save both income taxes and estate taxes if you make Missionary Ventures the death beneficiary of your individual retirement account, pension, 401(k) or other retirement savings plan.
