Smart & Powerful Giving
Planned gifts offer smart and creative ways to support Elmhurst CRC,
often while benefiting your family.
By understanding the available options,
you can multiply the results of your generosity in ways that are simple, flexible, cost-effective, and powerful.
Gifts That Reduce Taxes
You may be able to increase your potential impact and reduce your taxes by giving non-cash assets. Non-cash assets include: stock or marketable securities, real estate, business interests, farm commodities, and tangible personal property.
Gifts From Your IRA
Individuals ages 70 1/2 and older can make a sizeable gift from an individual retirement account (IRA) to Elmhurst CRC and receive significant tax benefits in return.
Gifts In A Will
By including charitable giving in your will, you model to your loved ones a legacy of generosity. You also help ensure Elmhurst CRC continues to make a difference well beyond your lifetime.
Gifts That Pay You Income
Lifetime income gifts are wonderful solutions for Christians who wish to give in a substantial way but are concerned about having enough retirement income. You can give cash or other property, and receive a steady income for the rest of your life. The remainder will benefit Elmhurst CRC.
