Other Ways to Give for a Lasting Impact…
A Planned Gift – A donation to the Thomas More Law Center through a Planned Gift gives you the opportunity to support the Thomas More Law Center in its current and future battles on behalf of America’s Judeo-Christian heritage and national security. Some examples of Planned Gifts include:
- Will Bequests
- Life Insurance and IRA proceeds
- Charitable Gift Annuities (CGAs)
A Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA)
Through a CGA, a donor can transfer cash, marketable securities, or other assets to a charitable organization in exchange for that organization’s promise to make fixed payments – either immediately or deferred to some future date – to the donor for the remainder of his lifetime.
Because the CGA is part charitable gift and part annuity contract, the gift portion of the transfer is – depending on the value of the asset and the annuity rate – immediately deductible for tax purposes.
For more information about CGAs and other planned giving programs, please call Tom Lynch at 734-827-2001.
