Benefit ministry without any hassle.
Beneficiary designation allows you to give assets like a life insurance policy or retirement plan to ministry after your passing. It is one of the easiest and most tax-efficient ways to support Kingdom work, because updating a beneficiary designation doesn’t require changes to your will or trust.
Provide Control and FlexibilityBeneficiary designations are revocable until your death; you control which ministry or ministries you want to support and the asset percentage each beneficiary receives.
Reduce Potential Tax BurdenDepending on the asset, these gifts can reduce or eliminate income taxes for your heirs, as well as minimize estate taxes, if applicable.
Give with Ease and SimplicityMost beneficiary designations require a single form and typically don’t necessitate changes to your will, trust or estate plan.
Our experienced staff will help you support charitable causes you care about.
