Investing in God’s Kingdom with Your IRA

on ; last featured September 10, 2016

We are commanded in Scripture to be good stewards of the resources God has given us. Good stewardship includes wisely using our money in a way that honors Him. Planned giving is one way you can plan to invest your resources in God’s kingdom as well as create a lasting legacy for you and your family.

Many Americans choose to supplement their Social Security (which only provides approximately 40% of the average person’s retirement income) with an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) as they prepare for the future. But did you know that you can also use your IRA to make an impact for eternity?

When an IRA is passed down to children or other loved ones, it is subject to both estate and income taxes, often leaving little for their use. Many people choose instead to leave their estate and stocks to their children, and donate their IRA to a non-profit where it will not be subject to these taxes. In making a gift of your IRA to Answers in Genesis, you are making an investment in eternity, establishing a legacy, and avoiding any additional taxes for your children.

When you give to Answers in Genesis, you are partnering with us to ensure that we are able to continue spreading the precious message of the gospel and providing solid answers to the questions of today’s age to a world that desperately needs to hear them.
