Giving Options

A Gift in Your Will

A charitable gift from your estate is a favored method of giving that enables you to achieve your financial goals, maintain control of your assets, and benefit Boston Church of Christ.

The IRA Gift (QCD)

The IRA charitable rollover (also called the Qualified Charitable Distribution, or QCD) is a great way to make a tax-free gift to Boston Church of Christ.

Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund can provide you with immediate tax benefits while making your charitable giving easier for years to come. Might a donor advised fund be right for you? Here’s how it works.

Life Insurance

Life insurance is a valuable asset for making a charitable gift. You can make a gift of a life insurance policy without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.

Other Ways of Creating a Legacy

A charitable remainder unitrust can help you maintain or increase your income while making a significant gift to Boston Church of Christ. The charitable remainder unitrust is highly flexible. You can easily make gifts of assets that are not easily converted to cash using the unitrust. If your unitrust grows, your payments will grow too, providing a potential hedge against inflation.

Stocks & Bonds

Giving appreciated stock is easy at Boston Church of Christ, and very beneficial to you.  There are no capital gains tax, you’ll receive a tax deduction for the full mean value of the stock upon transfer, and it’s a wonderful way to create your legacy. 

Retained Life Estates

Irrevocably giving your mortgage-free home (or vacation house or farm) to Boston Church of Christ while continuing to live in it and maintain it is a “Retained Life Estate,” and can benefit you while you are alive because the charitable tax deduction may be taken for up to six years.
