Giving to the EFCA Foundation can be done either directly or through a gift model that can provide tax benefits and even income. Click on a gift model below to learn more.
Charitable Gift Annuity
You transfer your cash or appreciated property to the EFCA Foundation in exchange for our promise to pay you fixed income (with rates based on your age) for the rest of your life.
Ministry Designated Funds
Approved EFCA ministries may set up their own "foundation" to receive both current and estate gifts. This helps sustain a named ministry year after year so you can accomplish your mission and ministry initiatives.
Charitable Annuity Trust
You transfer your cash or appreciated property to fund a charitable trust. The trust sells your property tax free and provides you with fixed income for life or a term of years.
Charitable Lead Trust
You transfer your cash or property to fund a lead trust that makes gifts to us for a number of years. You receive a charitable deduction for the gift. Your family receives the remainder at substantial tax savings.
Give it Twice Trust
You may be looking for a way to provide your children with income while making a gift to charity. The Give it Twice Trust is a popular option that allows you to transfer your IRA at death to a term of years unitrust.
Unitrust and Special Needs Trust
If you are looking for a way to provide for a loved one who has special needs, and also make a gift to us, a charitable remainder unitrust and a special needs trust arrangement could help you achieve your objectives.
Life Estate Reserved
You may desire to leave your home, vacation home or farm to us at your death but would like to receive a current charitable tax deduction. A life estate reserved might offer the solution you need!
