Ways To Give
This is the most common method of completing a financial pledge. Your gift to We Stand With Christ, Inc. (WSWC) is tax deductible and may be paid immediately or over three to five years.
Gifts of Securities
A gift of appreciated securities is one way to make a significant contribution at a reduced cost to you. Federal tax laws allow a charitable deduction for the full market value of securities on the date of your gift
Charitable Remainder Annuity Trusts and Unitrusts
Enable you to make a significant gift to the WSWC during your lifetime and continue to receive income for yourself and/or other beneficiaries. After the life interests have passed, the remaining principal will pass to WSWC. In addition to income tax deductions in the year the trust is instituted (with five-year carry-over privileges), donors may avoid capital gains and significantly reduce estate and gift taxes.
Are simply a provision in your will to leave a gift to WSWC. Charitable bequests are fully deductible from your estate and can significantly reduce your estate taxes on the balance of your estate. Your bequest may be specified as a gift of cash or securities, real estate, or other property. Alternatively, it may take the form of a percentage of your total estate. You may also consider a residuary bequest, which is a gift of all or a portion of your estate after other conditions are met
Please inquire as to your company’s ability and willingness to encourage and match your personal philanthropy. This could dramatically increase the size of the gift
Certain other gifts, real property, personal property, in-kind gifts, non-liquid securities and contributions whose sources are not transparent or whose use is restricted in some manner, must be reviewed prior to acceptance due to the special obligations raised or liabilities they may pose for WSWC.
Please consult your personal advisors on all legal, tax, or financial issues related to your gift or personal matters. Nothing contained in this document should be considered legal, tax, or financial advice.
Gift Acceptance Policy
Acceptance of any contribution, gift or grant is at the discretion of We Stand With Christ, Inc. (WSWC). WSWC will not accept any gift unless it can be used or expended consistently with the purpose and mission of WSWC and is documented in writing by the donor. No irrevocable gift, whether outright or life-income in character, will be accepted if under any reasonable set of circumstances the gift would jeopardize the donor’s financial security. WSWC will refrain from providing advice about the tax or other treatment of gifts and will encourage donors to seek guidance from their own professional advisors to assist them in the process of making their gift. WSWC will accept donations of cash or publicly traded securities (which will be liquidated as soon as possible). Gifts of in-kind services will be accepted at the discretion of WSWC. Certain other gifts, real property, personal property, in-kind gifts, non-liquid securities, and contributions whose sources are not transparent or whose use is restricted in some manner, must be reviewed prior to acceptance due to the special obligations raised or liabilities they may pose for WSWC.
