Charitable Gift and Estate Planning
Renewanation believes there is no better investment we can make than giving the children of this generation a thoroughly biblical worldview. As we work with families, churches and schools that seek to provide biblical worldview training to their youth, we equip and strengthen our children to defend their faith and proclaim God’s truths in the communities in which they live.
Your giving enables Renewanation to regain ground in the culture war playing out in our society. Your support has provided resources and programs that have laid the foundation for future exponential impact. While thousands of children’s lives have been impacted for Christ over the past few years, God is leading us to a path where millions of children will gain the opportunity to develop a biblical worldview.
Options for Giving
Donations of stock or other investment securities that have been held for more than a year can be eligible for a full market value tax-deduction including the avoidance of capital gains tax on any appreciated value.
Tax-deferred retirement accounts such as 401(k), 403(b), profit sharing plans, and pension plans can be an excellent way of donating funds. If you are 59½ years or older, there is no tax penalty for gifting a portion of these assets today.
You may also consider designating Renewanation as the primary or contingent beneficiary of your retirement assets upon your death. This would allow you to avoid estate and income taxes upon your passing.
Wills and Estates
Naming Renewanation in your will or living trust provides you the opportunity to leave a legacy beyond your lifetime. This charitable gift allows you control over your assets while you are still alive.
Charitable Gift Annuities
A Charitable Gift Annuity provides you (and a secondary beneficiary, if desired) with lifetime income on a fixed schedule in exchange for your gift of cash or securities. A large portion of your gift amount is deductible as a charitable gift. Upon the death of the final payee, the gift balance is passed to Renewanation to support our mission of offering every child a biblical worldview education.
Business Interest Donation
Gifts to Renewanation of partial or full interests in a business, inventory items, commodities or other business assets can
provide substantial tax savings.
Donations of real estate owned for more than a year may be eligible for a full market value tax-deduction including the avoidance of capital gains tax on the appreciated value. Real estate donations include business and rental properties, homes, and land that are marketable and void of environmental concerns.
