A life income gift, such as a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder unitrust, can provide you and/or your loved ones with an income for the duration of your lives or for a specific number of years. You receive a current income tax dedication as well.
Naming Mid-America Christian University as a primary or contingent beneficiary of a private pension fund (e.g. IRA, SEP, 401(k)) can result in significant tax savings for your estate upon death.
You can generate a current income tax deduction by giving a home or farm to MACU, while retaining the right to use the property during your lifetime. The property will also be removed from your taxable estate.Contact University Advancement
