“Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

1 Corinthians 10:30

Do you know what would happen to your assets if something should happen to you? Estate planning is not an easy topic to discuss, but it is important to have a plan in place for the resources God has provided. We have a responsibility to care for the resources God has provided to us, not only during our lifetime but also at death. You can incorporate your Christian values into your plan.

In planning, you have the opportunity to leave a legacy. A legacy gift is a wonderful way to support SIM USA and have a lasting impact of sharing the gospel around the world. There are many different charitable giving techniques that can be explored. Planned gifts can be created through vehicles such as your will, living trust, retirement plan, annuities, and life insurance. A planned gift may also benefit your financial planning by providing a lifetime stream of annuity income and a possible tax deduction.

To get started, click the “leaving a legacy” link. This will take you to an Estate Plan Organizer where you will walk through a tutorial and data-gathering process. When you are finished, you can print your plan and take it to an attorney, or you can submit it and request help. If you do submit, one of our partners at PhilanthroCorp will be in touch with you to provide further assistance.

Thank you for your interest in planned giving.

Many Blessings,

Kelly Bivins
Stewardship Financial Director, SIM USA

LEAVING A LEGACY

SIM has partnered with PhilanthroCorp to help our donors navigate their estate planning. PhilanthroCorp offers a wide range of resources to help you every step of the way.

STOCKS, BONDS, AND MUTUAL FUNDS

Your appreciated securities can be given as tax-deductible donations to SIM. We’re here to guide you through the process.

BITCOIN DONATIONS

SIM now accepts Bitcoin donations through BitPay. Once we receive your Bitcoin donation, we will send an acknowledgment for your tax records. Contributions are deductible as allowable under IRS regulations. Bitcoins are considered gifts-in-kind. SIM USA will not report value, which is standard practice for gifts-in-kind. Please consult your tax advisor for deductibility and record keeping. If you have questions, please email Kelly Bivins, Stewardship Financial Director, at kelly.bivins@sim.org
