We are grateful to those who came before us for all of the ministry that they have made possible. Now it is our turn. We are entrusted to care for this mission and ensure that it thrives for those who come next.
LEARN what legacy giving really is.
Legacy giving is:
Opportunity…It is for you who care so deeply about New Hope Presbyterian Church and what happens beyond your lifetime. Legacy Giving enables you to provide for those who come next, whom you may never know.
The gift of a lifetime…For most of us, our legacy gift is the largest and therefore the most impactful gift that we will make.
Converting your resources into missions for generations to come… Through a legacy gift, when you no longer have need for your things – like your financial, personal and real assets – you can share them with your faith family to ensure our mission for countless others.
Personal…Even after your lifetime, this is how you still hold close a child in need, a struggling family, a budding new leader. Imagine lifting up not just one deserving person, but a dozen; imagine lifting up hundreds.
Leadership…As a leader, people watch what you do. Your legacy gift teaches others to re-deploy the resources they have to lift up others - during their lifetimes and after.
DESIGN your gift. Your financial picture is unique, and so is your legacy gift.
Here are some common gift possibilities:
Bequest: Make a gift after your lifetime through your will or trust. This can be a fixed dollar amount, a specific asset, or a percentage of your estate.
Retirement Account: This can be the most heavily taxed asset in many estates. Choosing this as your gift might leave your less task-burdened assets to your loved ones.
Real Estate: Contributing property after your lifetime or when it is no longer needed can be a game-changing gift.
Charitable Trust: Trusts can combine flexible benefits including a generous income, tax benefits and a powerful gift to the church.
Other: Many other giving opportunities might prove ideal for your situation.
Letting people know that you made a gift – and why - amplifies the power of your gift. We teach by demonstrating our values through our words and actions. Now that you have made a gift, you can expand your impact by sharing the why of your gift.
Share the news of your gift with:
Your loved ones so that they can witness your commitment beyond your lifetime — and follow your example to plan their own legacy for the future.
New Hope Presbyterian Church so that others may witness your joy and explore their own pathway to such a gift.
