Planned Giving

MCCS has partnered with Everence* to provide charitable services to help you explore a variety of planned giving options. Through gift planning, you can provide future support for MCCS, while also giving you and your loved ones financial flexibility, potential tax benefits and even income for life.

  • Bequests

    Through a bequest plan, you can designate MCCS as the beneficiary of assets by will, trust or other instrument.

  • Charitable gift annuities

    A gift annuity is a great way to help MCCS while also securing your future, with guaranteed payments for life.**

  • Charitable remainder trusts

    A charitable remainder trust is an ideal way to turn your assets (like real estate and securities) into a charitable gift without losing much of your capital gains to taxes – and support MCCS at the same time.
  • IRAs and tax-deferred accounts

    If you have a tax-deferred account, such as a traditional IRA (individual retirement account), you can donate it to charity upon your death and help your estate avoid paying substantial taxes that may be due.
  • Farm commodities

    Farmers can donate commodities like grain or livestock instead of cash to MCCS, while also reducing taxes.
  • Gifts of stock

    You can turn your investments into cash without losing a large portion of your capital gains to taxes by donating all or a portion of your stock to MCCS.
  • Gifts of real estate

    Giving a charitable gift of real estate is an option for owners of farmland, commercial or residential rental property, or vacant investment land.
  • Life insurance

    Life insurance is a practical and affordable way to donate more than you may have thought possible.
* Everence charitable services are administered by Mennonite Foundation (an affiliate of Everence) and Everence Trust Company.
** Gift annuity payments are dependent on the financial ability of the issuing entity to pay.
