What Is a Charitable Bequest?

How to Give Financially to Answers in Genesis

on ; last featured October 29, 2016

Are you considering the future and what legacy you will leave with the resources God has given you? An investment in the lives of others and in the kingdom of God is the best and most fulfilling legacy that we can leave. An investment in God’s kingdom is an eternal investment that will never rust, fade, or get stolen (Matthew 6:20).

One way that you can prayerfully invest in God’s kingdom, as you are able, is by giving to the Bible-affirming and evangelistic ministry of Answers in Genesis. We work to equip the church by providing desperately needed answers for the skeptical questions of this age. In a day and age when more and more people are rejecting God and His Word and are instead embracing a secular worldview that opposes God’s Word, it’s more important than ever that we provide solid answers and equip the church to stand on the authority of God’s Word from the very beginning.

If you feel God is leading you to support us in this outreach, a charitable bequest is one of the easiest and most flexible ways that you can leave a gift to Answers in Genesis that will make a lasting impact. A charitable bequest, put simply, is a gift you give to a charity through your last will and testament.

The benefits of a bequest include the following:

  • Receive an estate tax charitable deduction
  • Reduce the burden of taxes on your family
  • Leave a lasting legacy to Answers in Genesis

With the help of an attorney, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to family, friends, or Answers in Genesis as part of your estate plan, or you can make a bequest using a beneficiary designation form.

If you have been so generous as to already include a bequest to Answers in Genesis as part of your estate plan, please take the time to let us know. We would like to personally acknowledge you and your family for your generosity. It’s faithful supporters like you who generously give to allow Answers in Genesis to do what we do. When you give to AiG, you become part of the work that God is doing here and you leave a legacy of Christians who have been equipped so they are always “ready to give a defense to everyone who asks them a reason for the hope that is in them” (1 Peter 3:15).
