Gifts That Pay Income for Life

Are you torn between making a difference and having enough for retirement? There’s a win-win solution! You can care for your needs AND still give generously through a gift that pays you income for life.

You can establish a life income arrangement by gifting cash or other property for the benefit of ministries dearest to your heart. In exchange, you will receive lifetime payments for you and/or your loved ones.

Life income gifts offer several advantages…

  1. By giving assets such as rental properties that you no longer care to manage, you can free up time to do more of the Lord’s work.
  2. You’ll realize tax advantages that ultimately put more money in your pocket for living and giving.
  3. Ministries can make strategic decisions knowing finances will be available for the long-term.
  4. Most importantly, you honor our more-than-enough God by stewarding His resources to meet both material needs AND Kingdom causes — without having to choose.
