Give Now and Receive Income
Did you know that you can make a gift to the church AND receive income from that same transaction? This kind of gift can be a blessing for folks who have assets like CDs or Stocks or Bonds that are not producing the kind of income you need to have a higher quality of life, especially with interest rates so low. Here are three different ways you can give some of those assets to the church now, and create a stream of income for yourself! These types of gifts can also provide you with ways to save on your income taxes or protect you from Capital Gains taxes! Before making any of these types of gifts, you should speak with your CPA or your attorney to see which type of gift makes the most sense for you and your financial situation.
