What kind of generational legacy would you like to establish? How do you share your values with your family now and after you are gone? Charitable giving is a very personal decision, reflects your values and beliefs, and is an important part of the wealth management process.
You may wish to be more philanthropic or impactful with your giving, but are unaware of the many new innovative solutions that exist. Christian Financial Advisors® can help you realize your charitable objectives and dreams by listening for giving opportunities, discussing options, and suggesting personalized solutions. The key to a natural giving discussion is to include charitable planning strategies in your overall wealth planning process.
Benefits of Giving
Christian Financial Advisors® can help you identify a deferred giving goal that is beneficial to both you and your church or organization. Careful and thoughtful financial planning is a unique opportunity for you and your heirs allowing you to leave an enduring and significant legacy.
Depending on your gift amount, gross income, and tax bracket, gifts to your favorite charities could lower your income tax burden by hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
When gifting capital assets, three great things happen:
- By-pass capital gains tax
- Income tax deduction at fair market value
- Charity benefits
Why Does It Matter?
In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Acts 20:35 (NASB)
Christian Financial Advisors® is here to aid you with planned giving and presents many advantages to help you identify and actualize your long-term financial goals while also helping your church or organization in its own long-term financial planning. CIS accommodates you with a variety of opportunities that can help empower your church/organization to advance and develop its mission.
Philanthropic planning may increase the value of your
estate while also allowing you to leave a meaningful legacy.

- Will you face considerable estate taxes upon your death or that of your spouse?
- Do you own any oil and gas mineral rights, investment real estate or a business?
- Have you considered the possibility that you may have more than you need, or will need in retirement?
