Planned giving

Planned giving

Planning carefully how to give can greatly increase the satisfaction you derive from your contributions. Many contributors decide to continue their lifetime of giving to The First Church of Christ, Scientist through bequests – gifts made in their wills or living trusts. Others have made the Church the beneficiary of life insurance, retirement accounts, or a certificate of deposit. You might even choose to make a gift that reserves lifetime income to you or a family member and then benefits the Church in the same manner as if you had made a bequest. Such gifts reward contributors with important tax savings and other financial benefits. By tailoring the form of your gift to fit your individual and family situation, you can gain maximum tax rewards, maintain financial security, and make a truly meaningful contribution to our core activities.
