Designate CBE for gifts of Life Insurance, Retirement Assets, Real Estate, or Other Financial Accounts
These gifts generally escape estate, inheritance, and income taxes.
How? Contact your life insurance provider, retirement plan administrator, or financial institution and file the appropriate beneficiary designation, payable on death (POD), or transfer-on-death (TOD) forms. Laws and designation options vary by state.
Join CBE’s Legacy Circle
The Legacy Circle recognizes and honors those who are passionate about biblical gender equality and have remembered CBE in their estate plans through a will, charitable gift annuity, life insurance, or other planned gift.
By letting us know about your planned gifts, you can help us plan ahead to meet the ministry needs about which you care so much. You also give us the opportunity to thank and honor you now for the difference you will make long after your lifetime.
You can let us know by calling Julene at 612-872-6898 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
In recognition of your commitment to CBE’s continued ministry, members of the Legacy Circle receive the following:
- Tax-wise planned gift advice at no cost from Barnabas Foundation, CBE’s estate planning partner (more information below)
- Free advance copies of new CBE-published books
- Free life-time subscriptions to Mutuality and Priscilla Papers
- Semi-annual teleconference with CBE’s president, to discuss new initiatives
CBE is a member of Barnabas Foundation, a ministry that guides Christians of all ages to grow in their understanding and joy of living a generous life.
You can access Barnabas Foundation attorneys to discuss planned giving at no cost. They will help you make tax-wise decisions about your financial resources, while you honor and glorify God with your wealth, regardless of the size of your estate, your age, or your stage of life.
If you can answer yes to one of these three questions, you may want to consider a conversation with an attorney from Barnabas Foundation:
- Have you ever thought about making a gift of something other than cash, to reduce your tax liability?
- If you could make a gift that would provide income for your life, would you want more information?
- Have you ever thought of making a gift in your will?
In addition, there are specific times and events during our lives when discussing planned gifts can both advance the gospel and benefit your family. These important events—the sale of appreciated assets or stocks, sale of a business, sale of a farm, or retirement—are also excellent times to consider contacting Barnabas Foundation about a planned gift.
