Bausman Memorial UCC Endowment Campaign


Are you interested in donating funds to support Bausman Memorial UCC now or in the future? Here are a few opportunities and thoughts for you to consider. Contact our office today to discuss personally.

Are You CLEAR on Your Year-End Planning?

If you are like many people, you do your major charitable giving toward the end of the year. Here are five suggestions to make sure your gift plans are CLEAR for successful year-end giving.

Calculate Your Income.

Did earned or unearned income increase? Did you sell appreciated assets? Will you owe more taxes? That is a good reason to increase your charitable giving before Dec. 31.

Life Income Gifts may meet your needs.

You can make a gift now, get tax benefits and receive income for the rest of your life- like a Charitable Gift Annuity.

Early giving is the key.

As the year winds down, professional advisors get busy. Call today to get professional advice for your situation.

Advisors are an important part of your planning.

Before you make a big gift and join the Benjamin Bausman Society, talk to your CPA, an attorney or other advisor to help you understand the impact of your gift.

Review Your Stocks.

It may be wise for you to make a year-end gift using appreciated stocks. A gift of appreciated stocks could save you some capital gains tax.

Contact Pastor Mark to tell him how CLEAR you are about gifting to Bausman UCC. Thanks in advance for your generosity.

  3. Leave a percentage of your estate or a specific dollar amount to your favorite charity.

  4. Consider giving assets. These include cash, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, jewelry and art.

  5. Name your favorite charity as owner and beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy.

  6. Learn more about charitable gift annuities and how they can provide you with income during your lifetime, while ultimately benefitting Bausman Memorial UCC.

  7. Talk to your favorite charities about their needs and your interest in leaving a legacy.

  8. Remember loved ones with a memorial gift.

  9. Encourage family and friends to leave gifts to favorite charities in their wills.
