HOW DO WE SUPPORT PLANNED GIVING?
The Central States Conference Trust Services is responsible for redistributing resources through wills, trusts, annuities and other special gifts that benefit individuals, families and God's work. Trust Services expresses a tradition of sound administrative and investment policies, accountability and high ethical standards. All personnel who have discretionary duties must be certified and complete annual continuing education requirements. Trust Services are audited regularly and meet rigorous accreditation and fiduciary standards. Designed to meet changing needs throughout the life cycle, Trust Services not only provides useful financial, estate and gift planning information, but also discusses how to arrange care for children or elderly parents and name individuals to make decisions for them if they are unable to do so. By placing these services in the context of Seventh-day Adventist beliefs -- and making them available to all, the Central States Conference Trust Services provides unique opportunities for our church families to achieve their personal, financial and spiritual objectives.
WHAT CAN YOU GIVE?
Land or Real Estate
A gift of your appreciated real property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland, ranch or commercial property) can make a great gift to Central States Conference.
A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift to Central States Conference.
Giving to our cause can be done directly through one of our gift models which can provide tax benefits and even income!
Life is about transitions. About growing from child to adult to senior. About extending God's kingdom from generation to generation. Our faith in the Lord may be constant, but personal, family and financial challenges change almost daily.
Planned Giving and Trust Services can help. A unique mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, we provide useful financial, estate and gift planning information, with special sensitivity to our faith.
Planned Giving and Trust Services isn't just for the wealthy, and it isn't just for seniors. Throughout the life cycle, we discuss your changing needs to build financial security, protect loved ones and sustain the causes you love.
Administered locally by people who worship right beside you, our services generally are free, so every church member can effectively manage the resources God entrusts to them.
