Planned & Legacy
Planned & Legacy Giving
Planned and Legacy Giving is a term describing gifts made today for actual delivery to a charity at a future date, often after the span of a life. That date is uncertain because “no one knows the length of a life”. Death or some other life event is very the date that puts plans into effect. This requires a plan and that plan can create an enduring legacy for The Church of the Covenant.
A Bequest is the simplest kind of planned gift. A bequest is the property or money that is promised in a will to be given to another person or organization at death. A bequest is promised to a beneficiaries. Wills are written during life to provide for settling financial details after death. Naming The Church of the Covenant in a will now, provides a gift to the Church for a future date. Wills and bequests in them are useful in meeting a variety of planning goals.

Many different types of gifts can have a role in planning a gift such as a Gift of Life Insurance, an IRA Charitable Rollovers, Retirement Plans, Trusts, and many more. There are even gifts which can return life-long income to the giver or family generations.
