Charitable Gift Annuity
You transfer your cash or appreciated property to Luther Seminary in exchange for our promise to pay you fixed income (with rates based on your age) for the rest of your life.
Charitable Annuity Trust
You transfer your cash or appreciated property to fund a charitable trust. The trust sells your property tax free and provides you with fixed income for life or a term of years.
Charitable Lead Trust
You transfer your cash or property to fund a lead trust that makes gifts to us for a number of years. You receive a charitable deduction for the gift. Your family receives the remainder at substantial tax savings.
Give it Twice Trust
You may be looking for a way to provide your children with income while making a gift to charity. The Give it Twice Trust is a popular option that allows you to transfer your IRA at death to a term of years unitrust.
Life Estate Reserved
You may desire to leave your home or farm to us at your death, but would like to receive a current charitable tax deduction. A life estate reserved might offer the solution you need!
