Designating where your money will go when your life is over is a very personal decision, but an important one. Thoughtful gift planning can create a legacy that lives beyond your lifetime, impacting the lives of future generations.
World Concern has been blessed with donors who have chosen to invest in our work long-term through a planned gift. These gifts are tangible expressions of faith that are crucial to the ongoing success and growth of our ministry. We invite you to consider partnering with World Concern as you prayerfully plan your legacy.
If you would like to talk with someone about any of these options, please contact Carol Coddington at 206-289-7905 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fast-forward three decades. They’ve raised four children, Curt recently retired, and the family has made a huge impact in the lives of the poor through their generous donations to World Concern.
“It’s so evident there’s such a great need,” said Curt. “Christ commanded us to be generous with what we have. I’ve seen World Concern’s work they do in places of great need, and I’ve seen the impact on people’s lives. It’s an organization of quality people committed to Christ who want to help others less fortunate than themselves.”
Curt and Nora want to continue helping the poor even after they’re gone. In addition to leaving an inheritance to their children, they’ve included a gift for World Concern in their will.
“It’s pretty simple. You don’t get to take your worldly possessions and treasures to heaven. You never see a U-haul or an armored truck following your hearse,” said Curt. “Somebody’s going to get your money. Wouldn’t you rather plan and direct who will get your life’s legacy?
“World Concern’s mission is something we believe in strongly. We want to continue that support with a long-term gift.”
These gifts provide immediate resources to World Concern while utilizing tax-wise giving strategies. Thoughtfully selecting what to donate can maximize the impact of your gift. Please consult with your professional advisor to determine the tax implications of your gift.
These gifts take effect at the end of your life, allowing you to have your assets available for as long as you need them. Your deferred gift helps ensure that World Concern will be able to reach future generations with life-changing help.
Some gifts actually provide financial resources for you and World Concern by combining a charitable gift with payments to you and/or others you choose for life. A life income gift may enable you to make a more generous gift than you might otherwise while providing for your personal financial needs or those of your loved ones.
