Planned Gifts - giving retirement assets, bequests, trusts, etc.

There are several types of gifts that fall under this category. Many of these gifts are very simple to make.

Life Insurance - you can simply name Christ Community Church as a beneficiary.

Retirement Assets - you can name Christ Community Church as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or other qualified retirement plans. Any amounts remaining in your plan will transfer to Christ Community Church free of income and estate tax.

Bequests - you can name Christ Community Church in your will as a beneficiary and your estate will receive an income tax deduction for the value of your request. A bequest written in a will can be made for either a percentage or amount.
