“For all things come from you, and of your own have we given you...”
1 Chronicles 29:14
There are many creative ways to make a gift to support the Presbyterian Association of Musicians. Planned giving allows you to leave a lasting legacy of support for PAM and its ministry.
Even if you haven't written your own Last Will and Testament, you have a will. Unless you make provisions for how you want your estate distributed after your death, your state will make the decisions for you. As you remember your family and help secure their future, consider including PAM as a beneficiary of your estate. By doing this, you assure that an organization you supported in life is supported after your death.
Estate planning is the process of managing accumulated assets for the present and the future. It is a way to protect, preserve, and distribute your investments and other assets throughout your lifetime and upon your death. It can help you prepare for possible future needs, such as health problems, accidents, and unforeseen financial challenges. Estate planning may even reduce the tax consequences on your current assets and future estate taxes.
A bequest allows you to contribute to PAM into perpetuity. Your legacy gift allows PAM's work and ministry to continue for many generations to come.
You may establish a Creative Gift Fund at the Presbyterian Foundation with $2,500 or more using cash, securities, mutual fund share or other non-traditional assets. The fund can be invested in one of four different investment portfolios or you can select a combination of portfolios. You can make grant recommendations to support PAM and can give when you want or set up a grant to be distributed on a regular basis - perhaps monthly, quarterly, or annually. The Creative Gift Fund also provides tax advantages for making a charitable gift.
In exchange for your gift to the Presbyterian Foundation, you will receive payments for life, with assets remaining at your death contributed to PAM. A portion of your gift may be made available immediately to support a mission or ministry of PAM.
An endowment fund is created through an irrevocable gift to the Presbyterian Foundation. The Foundation professionally holds and manages the fund and pays income from the fund to PAM in perpetuity. An endowment fund creates a lasting legacy of faith and generosity.
