“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
– Matthew 6:19-21 NKJV

Legacy Planning

A Christ-centered financial plan helps you wisely steward what the Lord has entrusted to you. Biblical generosity produces “the fruit that increases to your credit” (Philippians 4:17 ESV), so you can effectively accomplish what God leads you to do on earth while laying up treasures in heaven. This is the process of building a Godly legacy.

A legacy plan starts with "today" and extends beyond your lifetime as your resources are used to help hurting people and share the Gospel with those who have never heard. Person by person, your legacy plan makes an eternal difference.

The resources provided here will help you. Our legacy planning team also stands ready to assist.

Make a Will
Making a Will allows you, as a Godly steward, to make decisions for the benefit of your family and to follow the Lord’s leading with all He has entrusted to you. A Will can leave a lasting legacy for those you love and want to inspire. It might be easier than you think.

Charitable Gift Annuity
Many seniors make a substantial gift to Samaritan’s Purse that provides them a generous fixed annuity for life. A Samaritan’s Purse Charitable Gift Annuity also comes with helpful tax benefits. Using appreciated stock for this gift also avoids the impact of capital gains tax.

Consider A Stock Gift
Giving appreciated stock to Samaritan’s Purse instead of cash can produce superior tax benefits. This gift enables many folks to give more than they otherwise could have by reducing their ordinary income taxes and avoiding capital gains taxes.

Give From Your IRA
If you are 70½ or older, you can give your required minimum distribution (or any amount up to $100,000) from your IRA as a tax-free rollover gift. Many people also name Samaritan's Purse as a beneficiary of their retirement plan, avoiding significant tax upon their death.

Asset-Based Giving
Giving the right asset, or a portion of an asset, can impact God’s Kingdom in a bigger way than you ever thought possible. With a legacy plan in place, more will go to ministry, and less to taxes. In some cases, your cash flow could even increase.
