Legacy Giving Guidance
Information about making a Christian will or establishing a charitable trust are available upon request. We would be pleased to work with your attorney and financial advisor in designing these documents.
The Foundation also serves as a trustee for various charitable trusts. These agreements provide a way for appreciated assets to be transferred to a trust and save capital gains tax. An income is paid to the donor or some specified person. Current income and estate tax savings are also realized, but, most of all, there is the satisfaction of knowing that the Baptist cause that was loved and supported during life will always receive financial aid. When Baptist causes are named, these services are provided without cost to the donor. Specific information concerning charitable trust is available upon request.
Often, a representative from the Foundation is invited by a church or association to speak on the topics above. There is no charge for these services.
