Five Benefits of Charitable Planning (+ Free Offer)

“Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.” 
Proverbs 15:22

I am so thankful for your heart for the Lord, His global church, and wise stewardship.

In my visits with amazing Langham friends all around the country, I often find that donors like you can benefit greatly from charitable planning.  I love how the Lord captures our hearts and moves us to give so pastors can be trained for the global church! But a very beautiful next step is when God’s people become strategic about how they can give in order to be wise stewards. 

Charitable planning is simply the process of developing a strategy for how to give in the best possible way. It often involves giving “beyond the checkbook” and can have some incredible benefits.

Five Benefits of Charitable Planning

Here are five benefits of charitable planning, followed by a free offer that we believe will be a blessing to you.

  1. Make an Even Greater Impact:  Explore how you can join others by giving the most significant gift ever through a gift in your will.
  2. Reduce Taxes: Determine whether gifting non-cash assets such as stock, real estate, retirement benefits, a business interest, or commodities will reduce your taxes. Charitable planning can also help you to understand why giving from your IRA is a tax-wise way to multiply the impact of your generosity.
  3. Provide for your loved ones and minimize family challenges: Bless and encourage your loved ones by providing for them appropriately, and also by making clear plans that serve as an example and minimize any burdens on your family members.
  4. Receive Income for Life: Support Langham Partnership while also receiving a steady income for the rest of your life through a gift annuity or a charitable trust.
  5. Simplify Your Giving: Simplify your giving and take advantage of additional tax benefits by using a donor-advised fund.
