Planned Giving at Grace Good Shepherd


Giving for the Future

Making a planned gift is not just for those who have wealth or special financial expertise but for anyone with a generous spirit who wants to designate their gifts while they are living. As members and friends of Grace Good Shepherd, we share a deep sense of gratitude for those who have gone before us. They gave gifts to fund the current needs and for the long-term benefit of those who would follow them in ministry.


What Is a Planned Gift?

A planned gift is a gift from your assets or estate that might include a bequest, life insurance, real estate, or personal property. There are a number of gifting options, including outright gifts of cash or assets, a charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder trust, and charitable lead trust. We strongly urge our donors to work closely with their financial advisors to determine the most advantageous estate plan for them.


Why Consider a Planned Gift?

Your legacy gift ensures the continued vitality of Grace Good Shepherd from one generation to the next. While a planned gift brings a sense of fulfillment to our own lives, it may also provide financial benefits to the donor, including tax savings, reduced capital gains and estate taxes, and release from financial management.
