Appreciated Assets

Gifts of appreciated assets can offer additional tax savings over cash gifts. If you would like to learn more about gifting appreciated assets including stock or real estate please contact Pastor Jim.

Life Insurance

Life insurance is easily gifted by percentage through a beneficiary designation or by gifting ownership of an entire policy.  The tax advantages depend on the policy’s cash value if donated during your lifetime or based on the amount given charitably if given at death. For more information about gifts of life insurance visit with your life insurance agent or contact Lutheran Planned Giving Services at 1-888-891-5728 or

Retirement Assets

Retirement plans are not designed to be an inheritance for your heirs. Accordingly, they are heavily taxed if left to your children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews. It is typically best to use retirement assets for your charitable gifts as charities are not required to pay taxes on retirement assets gifted to them. You can easily gift retirement assets by beneficiary designation (percentage or contingent) or by including special wording in your will. For more information about gifts of retirement assets, contact Lutheran Planned Giving Services at 1-888-891-5728 or

Deferred/Planned Gifts

There are a number of gift vehicles designed to help you bless your family and support ministry all while saving on taxes. For more information, please contact Pastor Jim.
