Ways to Donate
Outright Gift
The most common way of supporting the Bibles for the Bibleless Trust is an outright gift. An outright gift can come in the form of a cash gift, a pledge, or a planned gift that generates income. All outright gifts are tax deductible as provided by law.
This legal document insures that your estate is distributed and your family is cared for as you choose. In addition to caring for your family, you can also help make a way for people across the globe to hear the life-saving message of Jesus Christ by including the Bibles for the Bibleless Trust in your Will.
Charitable Gift Annuity
Your contribution of cash or securities into a Charitable Gift Annuity not only supports the Christian ministries of the Bibles for the Bibleless Trust, it provides you or your loved ones with fixed payments for a lifetime. These payments are based on your age at the time of the gift. There are also attractive tax benefits available through this gift.
Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds are the most common types of Securities in a person’s portfolio. By making a gift of Securities to the Bibles for the Bibleless Trust, in addition to partnering in our world-wide evangelistic ministry, you can claim the full appreciated value of the Securities as a charitable contribution deduction and usually avoid the capital gains tax.
Payable on Death Accounts
Payable on Death Accounts are a simple way to designate who will receive funds upon your death. This designation can be done with banks, brokerage firms, retirement funds, and more. Since you are considered the owner of your account, you can cancel or change it as you wish. At your death, unlike Wills, Payable on Death Accounts do not involve probate, allowing for quicker distribution and privacy.
Life Insurance
If you have a life insurance policy that has served its original purpose – providing for your children, protecting your mortgage, or securing your retirement funds – you may use this policy to help the Bibles for the Bibleless Trust present the Gospel around the world. You can do this by naming the Bibles for the Bibleless Trust as owner or beneficiary, and possibly experience some tax benefits as well.
Real Estate
Any type of Real Estate you own can be donated to the Bibles for the Bibleless Trust: house, farm, rental property, business property, land, vacation home, and more. Real Estate donations, however, must be readily marketable and without environmental contaminants. You gain significant tax advantages and your charitable contribution deduction is for the appraised value of your property.
Retirement Assets
Retirement Assets are tax-deferred retirement savings accounts, including profit-sharing, IRAs, 401(k), 403(b), and Keogh and pension plans. Gifts from these accounts while you are still living may have withdrawal penalties and will certainly have income tax liabilities. However, a gift from your Retirement Assets at your death would help avoid income and estate taxation, plus it can help people around the world discover Jesus Christ through His Word.
