Samaritan's Purse Gift Bequests Through Wills

Gift Bequests Through Wills

Continuing your commitment to honouring the Lord with what He has given, you can designate a percentage of your assets in your will to Samaritan's Purse, as well as care for your family.

Without estate or tax planning in your will, it is possible that the government could become an equal beneficiary of your estate. A significant tax event occurs when a person who is single passes away or if the remaining spouse passes. In most circumstances, tax sheltered funds - such as pensions and Registered Retirement Savings Plans - cannot be rolled over to anyone else. They must be taken into income and taxes are to be paid.

Charitable donations can offset those taxes to varying degrees, allowing more of your money to go to Samaritan's Purse and your loved ones. Though most people give because they want to further the ministry of Samaritan's Purse, it is wise to consider how you might offset some of the tax implications when your whole estate is liquidated.

Call us and ask for a free copy of our Will Guide. It will help you clarify in your mind what you would like to do with all God has entrusted to you. Then consult your financial advisor regarding gift bequests through your will.
