Planned and Deferred Giving

Quite often individuals and couples who need most of their current financial resources for their personal and family support are able to make sizable contributions to Christian ministries through deferred giving and careful estate planning.  If you need the income or use of certain resources during your lifetime, but would then like all or a portion of them to go to support the Lord's work, you can accomplish this through a will or a trust.  By minimizing current or estate taxes, resources that would otherwise go to the government can be designated to the Lord's work.

Many people are also able to increase their current income while making provision to support NCF or other Christian ministries.  This can be accomplished through one or more of the following ways:

Annuities

In our current economy, savings accounts and certificates of deposits are paying less than 1% annually.  If you are 55 or older, an NCF annuity can provide you an annual return between 4% and 9% for your lifetime.  You will also receive a tax deduction for a portion of your NCF gift annuity.  A gift annuity is a wonderful way to ensure regular income for your lifetime while also supporting the Lord's work.  For further information, please contact Craig Scoon at cscoon@ncfliving.org.  

Gifts of Real Estate, Stocks, or Personal Property

If you have stocks, real estate, or other properties that have appreciated in value, you may be able to make a significant gift to NCF's ministries and receive favorable tax advantages.  Real estate and stocks, for example, can be deeded to NCF free of any income tax on the appreciation.  For further information, please contact Craig Scoon at cscoon@ncfliving.org.  

Endowments

If you would like to invest at least $10,000 in NCF's ministries, you can establish an endowment fund that can be added to over the years.  NCF will invest the full amount of your contribution and use the income to support NCF's vital ministries for years to come.  You can establish an endowment for NCF's ministries to pastors and missionaries and their families; NCF's literature and website outreaches; or for the training of Christian psychologists and counselors.  For further information, please contact Craig Scoon at cscoon@ncfliving.org.  

Wills

To remember NCF in your will, tell your attorney the specific asset, amount, or the percentage of your estate that you would like to designate to support NCF's ministries.  Provide your attorney with the following information: Narramore Christian Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization; address:  P.O. Box 661900, Arcadia, CA 91066-1900.

If you would like additional assistance or would like to let us know that you are remembering NCF in your will, please contact Craig Scoon, CFO, at 626-821-8400, ext. 4, or cscoon@ncfliving.org.

Trusts

One of the most effective estate planning tools today is a trust.  NCF's financial planning consultant is available to talk with you about various types of trusts (revocable and irrevocable) to see if one might meet your financial planning needs.  For further information on setting up a trust, please contact Craig Scoon at cscoon@ncfliving.org.
