Steward the Gospel

Learn about Planned Giving

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16

Bring People to Jesus in 192 Nations.

Each one of us is a Steward of God’s resources.

1 Corinthians 4:2 says, “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.”

People often wish they could give more to the Lord’s work. By structuring a planned gift Christians can make a greater impact than they thought possible.

What is your time frame for giving?

Current Year / Near-Term Giving

Are you looking to make a tax-smart gift in the current year (or in the next 6-12 months)?

Gift of Appreciated Stock and Securities?

If you have stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other marketable securities which have greatly appreciated in value since their purchase, you can give them to 1Billion.org. You can deduct the fair market value of the stock and pay no capital gains tax on the stock (held for at least a year and a day.) This can dramatically reduce the cost of making a charitable gift or increase the amount you can afford to give.

Gift of Appreciated Real Property?

Many people have the ability to give real estate to the Lord’s work. Gifts of appreciated, unencumbered real estate that you have owned for more than one year can provide additional tax advantages to the giver, as well as funds to reach the world for Christ.

If you have rental property, commercial property, vacation property, a second home, or land that you are not using or are tired of caring for, giving it may be an ideal way to provide funds for 1Billion.org.

Gift of Life Insurance?

This is a direct and simple way to make a planned gift when you name 1Billion.org as the beneficiary to receive all or a portion of the proceeds of a life insurance policy. This kind of gift can also offer tax advantages; these benefits vary from state to state.

Gift of Part of a Business?

Are you an owner of a business? If so, that enterprise could serve you well as a means to lower your incomes taxes. With tax-wise planning, you can donate a small portion to charity and gain a valuable current year tax deduction. This can be done while retaining full control of your business. You can keep more today, to reach tomorrow’s goals for you, your business and your family.

Gift of Grain, Livestock and Farm Commodities?

If you have grain, livestock or other farm commodities, you can donate them prior to sale, and you could be exempt from claiming it as income. You can claim the gift at the market price. The charitable deduction you receive can reduce your state and federal taxes, as well as your self-employment taxes. This savings also reduces your cost of making a charitable gift or could enable you to increase the amount you can give.

Gift of Bitcoin and Other Virtual Currencies?

1Billion.org accepts tax-deductible gifts of various forms of virtual (digital) currency such as Bitcoin. Per government requirements, these gifts are recognized as real property and are received and receipted similar to stock and other securities. Virtual currency gifts of $5,000 or more annually require a qualified appraisal. For more information, or to make a Bitcoin donation, please contact [email protected]

When making your gift, please reference the 1Billion.org Tax ID Number: 45-5319931.

Charitable Giving Through Donor-Advised Funds?

This fund serves as a financial tool much like a private foundation, but offers more attractive options when it comes to realizing your personal charitable objectives. With a Donor Advised Fund, costs and administration are shared and minimized. You may claim a charitable income tax deduction and may not have to pay any capital gains, if the gift is of appreciated property. You have the flexibility with a Donor Advised Fund of giving to your charity(s) of choice now or over time.

Giving Through Charitable Lead Trusts?

The lead trust is another financial tool which makes payments, either a fixed amount (annuity trust) or a percentage of trust principal (unitrust), to 1Billion.org for a set term of years to support any ministry effort you choose to designate. When the trust terminates, the asset is ultimately returned to you (a grantor lead trust) or to your heirs (a non-grantor lead trust). You may claim a charitable tax deduction for funding a non-grantor lead trust. The lead trust is one of the few ways to reduce transfer taxes that would otherwise be due on assets left to loved ones.

Giving Through Charitable Gift Annuity?

A charitable gift annuity is a simple and safe way to receive a quarterly or yearly fixed income for your lifetime and your spouse’s lifetime.

Deferred / Future Giving

Is the time frame for your gift uncertain or anticipated to be more than 12 months in the future?

Gift in a Will or Estate?

You can choose to leave assets from your estate to 1Billion.org by a provision in your will, or a codicil to your will. This is a bequest. You can bequeath a specific amount of money, a percentage of your estate, or specific property. Your estate will receive a charitable estate tax deduction at your death, when the gift is actually made. A bequest enables you to make a significant gift to 1Billion.org while retaining full control of your assets throughout your life and can reduce your estate taxes.

Giving Through Charitable Remainder Trusts?

This trust is a financial tool which makes payments, either a fixed amount (annuity trust) or a percentage of trust principal (unitrust), to whomever you choose to receive the income. You may claim a charitable income tax deduction and may not have to pay any capital gains tax if the gift is of appreciated property. At the end of the trust term, 1Billion.org would receive whatever amount is left in the trust.

Gift of a Home or Farm: Retained Life Estate?

You can give your personal residence or farm to 1Billion.org and retain the right to live there for the remainder of your life. You would receive an immediate tax deduction, but would continue to maintain the property and pay taxes and even receive any income it might generate.

Gift for a Missionary Staff Member: Legacy Fund?

Staff members of 1Billion.org are dependent on friends like you for financial support to continue their important work. When you pass away, their needs do not come to an end. Would you like to continue your support of staff after your death? You can. The Staff Legacy Fund could be the ideal way for you to accomplish this objective.

Family Letter: Planning a Loved One's Homegoing?

A family letter is a key part of a good estate plan. It is much more personal than many of your estate documents. A family letter allows you to share your heart and show appreciation and gratitude to family members. During a time when family members are grieving, it also helps them to complete many practical steps to protect your property.
