Gifts & Annuities
Matthew 6:21 says, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” The heart of Barnabas is to care for the spiritual and emotional needs of missionaries around the world. When Lareau and Evie Lindquist, the founders of Barnabas International, began this ministry, their hope was that God would provide the needed funds to accomplish the task, and He has. It is our desire to see that this ministry of encouragement continues well into the future, so a fund has been established to guarantee that the ministry goes forth.
How can I help?
Charitable gift annuities offer attractive guaranteed returns for your lifetime. Since a gift annuity is irrevocable, a portion of the annuity amount is tax deductible. The rates of return and the deductible portion vary according to your age. We can provide the specific rate and tax information to help you determine if this would be a good stewardship decision for you.
Gifts of appreciated stock or real estate can be mutually beneficial to your tax planning and the Great Commission. You receive full, current market value and avoid the capital gains tax on the appreciated asset. As a tax-exempt organization we sell the holding without capital gains, and use the full proceeds for ministry. Publicly traded stocks or mutual funds are easy to transfer. We can work directly with your broker once you have given instructions. The gift must always precede the sale to avoid the negative tax consequences and maximize the benefit. Privately held stock and real estate can be more complex. Most of the time, however, gifts can be accomplished with careful planning and some research.
Charitable trusts allow you to take full tax advantage of appreciated stock or real estate while retaining income from the assets. This deduction can be used to reduce your tax burden for up to five years after the initial establishment of the trust. A portion of the income is also tax-free. The income can be fixed or tied to the market value of the trust each year. At the termination of the trust, Barnabas would receive the remainder of the principle. This can be an excellent planning vehicle that works for many who want to give, but need lifetime income from their assets.
A bequest in your will can provide a legacy to our work while retaining resources in your lifetime that may be needed for medical or other needs. Let us know if we can provide your attorney with the necessary legal and tax information to leave a gift to Barnabas as part of your will.
