Welcome, PROSPECTIVE PARTNERS AND SUPPORTERS!

 

Thank you for supporting our lifesaving and life changing work.

Your gift gives FaithCare the ability to respond to local and international medical needs. A timely response is crucial to saving more lives. Unrestricted funds allow us to allocate our resources most efficiently and where the needs are greatest.

Ways To Give

There are almost as many variations on ways to make a donation as there are needs to be met. Explore this section to discover new ways to make a gift that also take into consideration your personal circumstances and the needs of your loved ones.

Beneficiary Designations: Getting Started 
Take the time to ensure that your retirement plan, life insurance and insurance annuity assets are distributed as you wish. 

Naming the individuals and charities that will receive your assets once you are gone can be a simple process. Most assets can pass to your intended beneficiaries by the terms of your will. Other assets, such as retirement plans, life insurance and insurance annuities, however, are not controlled by the terms of your will. These assets instead require separate beneficiary forms. 

The beneficiaries of these assets can be easily modified at any time to meet your changing needs: 

  • IRAs and retirement plans
  • Life insurance policies
  • Insurance annuities

If you have questions about naming FaithCare as beneficiary of any of these assets, please contact Venton Forbes at (860) 904-2870 ext 12 or VForbes@faithcare.net . We are happy to help, without obligation and in confidence.

Bequest:

A gift through your will or living trust is one of the most effective ways to provide for FaithCare's future.  You may wish to leave FaithCare:

  • A stated dollar amount
  • A percentage of your residual estate (what remains after debts, expenses, taxes and specific bequests have been paid) or
  • A specific asset, such as securities or other marketable property

A gift to FaithCare in your will or living trust allows you to retain your assets during your lifetime. In addition, your estate, if large enough to pay estate taxes, would benefit from a charitable estate tax deduction.

Unrestricted gifts give us the greatest flexibility to use funds where they are needed most at any given time.

Benefits of a Gift Through Your Will or Trust

  • Retain control of your assets during your lifetime
  • Support for FaithCare's programs for the next generations
  • Possible estate tax deduction

Endowed Gifts 
Discover a powerful way to make a gift to us in your name or in the name of a loved one while realizing tax benefits for your kindness. 
 

Endowed Gifts: Getting Started 
When you establish an endowment, you make a gift to us that will last forever while also realizing tax benefits for your kindness. 

No matter which basic method you choose, you have the ability to endow your gift so that it lasts forever. Endowments are structured so that you designate the purpose of your gift. Your gift is invested with and becomes part of our endowment and a distribution is made each year. Because the principal remains intact, the fund will support our mission in perpetuity.

Major Donors

Because of donors like you, hundreds of thousands of lives in the United States and around the world have received lifesaving medical care and life changing counseling from medical and non-medical professional volunteers.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts 
If you have a family member or friend whose life has been touched by FaithCare, we hope you'll consider making a gift to us in honor of that person. 

Memorial and Honorary Gifts: Getting Started
Providing a gift establishes a living tribute that allows you to: 

  • Honor a loved one or yourself
  • Support our continuing efforts
  • Receive personal financial benefits from your contribution.

You may feel reluctant to condition your gift upon personal recognition. Yet allowing us to use your name or the name of a loved one can inspire philanthropy in others and further a cause that's important to you. 

Giving Now or Later
Any charitable gift you arrange can be made in honor of someone. Consider these two basic methods of establishing an honorary gift. 

A gift today—An outright gift can help fund our immediate needs or an upcoming project. The financial benefits include an income tax deduction and possible elimination of capital gains tax.

A gift through your will or living trust—You can include a bequest in your will or living trust stating that a specific asset, certain dollar amount or—more commonly—a percentage of your estate will pass to us at your death in honor of your loved one. 

No matter which basic method you choose, you have the ability to endow your gift so that it lasts forever. Endowments are structured so that you designate the purpose of your gift. Your gift is invested with and becomes part of our endowment and a distribution is made each year. Because the principal remains intact, the fund will support our mission in perpetuity.
