Leaving a Legacy: Planning Your Gifts to Bless Generations
A planned gift to Northwestern College has the potential for impact that multiplies many times over for a tremendous spiritual return on investment! A single student or listener may directly and indirectly influence hundreds or even thousands of people in his or her lifetime. Being intentional about how we live our lives and how we invest our time and money is one way we can make certain future generations have a chance to know who we are today.
Here are several common ways people plan their gifts that may also offer tax and other financial benefits:
Bequests through a will or revocable trust
Beneficiary of a life insurance policy, annuity or retirement plan
Charitable gift annuity
Outright gifts of tangible personal property
Through Northwestern College, Northwestern Media and/or Northwestern Foundation, your partnership can be custom-tailored to meet your goals and bless countless people through ministries that reflect your stewardship commitment, vision and vales. Our planned giving professionals are available as a resource for you as you explore the opportunities for legacy giving.
