Including Grace to You in Your Estate Plan
Thank you for your interest in donating to Grace to You through your estate plan. By making a gift bequest, you fulfill a direct and enduring role in reaching generations to come with the verse-by-verse Bible teaching of John MacArthur.
Your legacy gift will directly support the future distribution of millions of resources to men and women around the world by radio, CDs, books, and Internet audio and video. Future generations will be the beneficiaries of your planned gift.
Will or Trust Bequests
One of the simplest ways you can leave a legacy for the next generation is by naming Grace to You in your will or trust. Your bequest can be a stated dollar amount, a percentage, a specific asset, or the remainder of your estate after other distributions have been made. Through a bequest you will be able to maintain your support of Grace to You for generations to come.
The following information will help you designate Grace to You in your will or trust:
Grace to You’s tax identification number is 95-3846510.
Grace to You is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization operating as a California nonprofit corporation.
Sample bequest language:
*You may substitute a dollar amount in place of a percentage.
|I bequeath the sum of _________% of my estate* to Grace to You, Attn: Development Department, 28001 Harrison Parkway, Valencia, CA 91355, to be used for its work in teaching the Bible verse by verse through various media.
Please consult an attorney if you have questions about creating or amending your will or trust.
Another excellent way to make a gift bequest is by naming Grace to You as a direct or contingent beneficiary of your retirement account. Retirement accounts are typically the best assets to leave to charity as they are the most heavily taxed assets in your estate. If you were to name Grace to You as a beneficiary of your retirement account, you would avoid all tax on the amount distributed to Grace to You while providing a lasting legacy to the ministry.
Changing your beneficiary designation requires minimal paperwork and can even be accomplished online if your account offers that service. You’ll also enjoy the flexibility of making future adjustments easily, without the need of legal assistance, should you desire to make any changes.
A gift of your life insurance policy provides another opportunity to support the ongoing ministry of Grace to You. Such a legacy gift is simple to arrange and does not require the services of an attorney or related legal costs. By designating Grace to You as the primary or contingent beneficiary of a life insurance policy, the size of the gift is assured in advance—it will not depend on the fluctuations of the market or other economic factors. Since the donation is made outside of your will or trust, it guarantees that your wishes will be carried out immediately and as intended. The policy will be included in your taxable estate when you pass away, but your estate will benefit from an estate-tax charitable deduction for the value of the gift to Grace to You.
