Planned gifts offer you smart and creative ways to support Southwest Chicago Christian Schools – often while benefitting your family, too. By understanding the available options, you can multiply the end results of your generosity in ways that are simple, flexible, cost-effective and extraordinarily powerful.Gifts in a Will
By including charitable giving in your will, you model to your loved ones a legacy of generosity. You also help ensure SCCS continues to make a difference well beyond your lifetime.
You may be able to increase your potential impact –and experience significant tax benefits – by giving non-cash assets.
Examples of non-cash assets
Income for Life
- Stock or marketable securities
- Real estate
- Business interests
- Farm commodities
- IRA charitable rollover (for donors ages 70 ½ and older)
- Tangible personal property
Lifetime income agreements are wonderful solutions for Christians who wish to give in a substantial way, but are concerned about having enough retirement income. You can give cash or other property, and receive steady income for the rest of your life. The remainder will benefit SCCS.
