Make a Planned Gift

Most of us would agree that estate planning is important, yet a surprising number of Americans haven’t made even basic preparations for their passing: according to industry reports, 70 percent of American adults don’t have a will. Sadly, many will die without making their wishes known, leaving family or the government to sort out critical estate details. 

What are the reasons for delaying an estate planning decision? Usually it’s uncertainty over how to go about preparing an estate plan; how to choose a competent attorney; or the cost of estate planning services. 

In addition to these planning issues, many of God’s faithful stewards are not aware of other planning vehicles and options that exist. These vehicles can not only provide income out of idle, or non-income producing assets, but can also provide current or future gifts to the ministries they love. Often while providing current and/or future tax benefits.  

To assist our supporters in meeting this critical need, Slavic Gospel Association encourages you to contact Garland Gould, our Director of Donor Engagement. Garland has served God’s stewards for over 20 years in this capacity. He is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER and a Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy and is eager to serve you. We have also partnered with LifeStyle Giving, an estate and gift planning organization whose specialty is helping people make sound estate and gift planning decisions and will provide all needed forms, designs and materials. This engagement can help you provide for your family in your estate plan, leverage assets you may not be currently using, help you avoid unnecessary taxes and expenses, and maximize your Kingdom impact with your generosity.
