You can support Capuchin missionaries changing lives and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ while earning an income from your gift.
Charitable Gift Annuities
Charitable Gift Annuities (CGAs) are a great way to make a lasting difference for Capuchin missionaries and the people they serve while receiving tax-favorable income for you, your spouse and/or a loved one. Donors like charitable gift annuities because of their attractive payout rates and their significant impact on fulfilling the mission of the Seraphic Mass Association.
Using your IRA to fund a CGA
New legislation has created the opportunity for qualified IRA holders ages 70½ and older to fund a gift annuity, a charitable remainder annuity trust, or a charitable remainder unitrust by making a one-time election for a qualified charitable distribution of up to $50,000 during a single calendar year. Contact us to learn more and see if this option may be right for you.
Benefits of a CGA include:
Payments can be made as you prefer on an annual, quarterly or monthly basis
Your gift passes to the Seraphic Mass Association outside of the estate process.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
Charitable Remainder Trusts offer income for life for you and your family while reducing your taxes and supporting the Seraphic Mass Association.
By using assets or cash to fund the trust, you receive income and an income tax credit the year in which you transfer your assets. The remaining portion of the trust, after all payments have been made, comes to the Seraphic Mass Association.
You receive income for life for you or your heirs.
You create your legacy of helping Capuchin missionaries announce the Good News and spread the Catholic faith.
