A Will to Give

The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to release the oppressed.”
-Luke 4:18


What is My Legacy?

This is a question we ask ourselves as we accept our mortality.  How do we contribute to the world of helping others as Boston Church of Christ has done for nearly half a century? Planned giving through any of the types of gifts highlighted in this site offers a unique opportunity to combine the goal of financial security with a commitment to creating a lasting positive impact for Christ’s teachings.

When you include the Boston Church of Christ in your estate plans, you impact future generations of disciples and lives all over the globe with the creation of immediate or future funds to benefit the work of the church.

Whether giving assets to create a fund for the future, making an unrestricted gift with a generous bequest, or a generous life-income gift, Boston Church of Christ can help you find the appropriate way to leave a meaningful legacy for others.  Here are just a few of the easily created gifts that make a lasting difference.


Gift in Will

A bequest is a gift provision in your will or revocable living trust. All assets, including cash, securities, real estate, and tangible personal property, may be transferred to Boston Church of Christ at the end of your life. 



Instead of being taxed on that distribution, “roll over” the distribution (up to $100,000/year) to the Boston Church of Christ, and no tax will be due.



Donor Advised Fund

If you have a donor advised fund (DAF) with any provider like Fidelity Charitable, Merrill Charitable, Vanguard Charitable or other fiduciaries, you can recommend a gift from your fund to the Boston Church of Christ.
