Psalm 78:4 New Living Translation (NLT)
4 We will not hide these truths from our children;
we will tell the next generation
about the glorious deeds of the Lord,
about his power and his mighty wonders.
No matter what your age or wealth, deciding how to bequeath your assets is one of the most important decisions you will make in your lifetime. Your will, the document that specifies your wishes, allows you to make gifts to your family and friends as well as to the charitable organizations you wish to support. Including Evangel Ministries, Inc. in your will may allow you to make a more significant contribution than is possible during your lifetime — with the added peace of mind that comes from knowing your estate dollars will have maximum impact in helping The Family help families in Wisconsin to build health relationships with God and one another.
Through a bequest, you may leave a specific dollar amount, all or a percentage of your residuary estate, or specific assets such as marketable securities. You may also create a testamentary charitable remainder trust in your will, which provides life income to a loved one before the principal reverts to Evangel Ministries, Inc. A bequest to a charitable organization can significantly save on estate taxes. An outright bequest to Evangel Ministries, Inc. will pass free of estate taxes and will count as a deduction when calculating your taxable estate.
