Having a will is an important step in stewarding the resources God has given you. Not only does it provide for your loved ones and protect your estate, it also allows you to leave a legacy of generosity by giving a portion of your estate to the causes you care about. The Missions Foundation has a simple and completely FREE will creation tool.
Listing the Missions Foundation as a beneficiary on your life insurance is an easy and flexible way to support your favorite ministry and mission causes. Simply complete a change of beneficiary form with your insurance company naming the Missions Foundation as a beneficiary.
Retirement accounts, such as IRAs, 401(k), and 403(b) plans can be used to leave a legacy. By updating your beneficiary designations, you can name the Missions Foundation and/or a specific ministry as the beneficiary of some or all of a retirement account. These assets will transfer tax-free.
An annuity or trust can provide flexibility in your estate plan. It can be arranged to provide income in your retirement years or provide for your family while your gift grows.
You can gift your bank accounts or brokerage/investment accounts by naming the Missions Foundation as payee or transferee upon death. This type of gift transfers tax-free and outside of probate.
