You may choose any one or all of the following Gift Options to help support the ministries of the Good Samaritan Rescue Mission. Your gifts help feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and prepare the less fortunate for meaningful and productive lifestyles.
Check or Cash Gifts
Money Market, Regular Checking Account, Savings Account, or other funds may be given or combined with other Gift Options.
Stocks, Mutual Funds, Time Saving Certificates, Valuable Collections, other types of securities, land, crops, and livestock that have appreciated in value offer very economical, yet productive ways of giving. Regardless of the purchase price, the current full value establishes the gift amount. In addition, you avoid Capital Gain Taxes.
This option enables you to turn a no longer needed or wanted item into a tax-deductible gift. Examples are automobiles, boats, motorcycles, motor homes, trailer, and land or water sport vehicles. If you would like to pursue this avenue of giving, please contact our Director of Development.
Policies that are paid-up and / or no longer needed for their original intended purpose can be assigned to the Mission. The cash value as well as accumulated dividends are tax-deductible. If you have a policy or policies you do not wish to assign, you may give the current cash value and / or dividend accumulations. Another option is that you can also assign future cash value increases and dividends to the Mission.
Proceeds from a Sale of Personal Property
You may have several items of value that you no longer need or want. You can put their value to work for the Lord by selling them and giving the proceeds of their sale to the City Rescue Mission. It is possible that proceeds of the sale may not be taxable. However, the cash gift would be tax-deductible.
Personal Gift-Liquidated Loans
These loans make funds immediately available for ministry needs. They are non- collateralized loans that are satisfied by a series of gift liquidation payments over a one, two, three, or five-year period. At your option, the loans can be interest bearing or non-interest bearing. Each liquidation payment is a tax-deductible gift at the time of the payment
Other Donation Ideas
You may have another way you would like to give that is not listed above. Some examples are including the Mission in your Will, a Living Trust, a Gift Annuity, or a special Trust. If you would like to discuss your desired way of giving, please contact our Director of Development.
Your gift today makes it possible for those who are less fortunate than you to receive immediate help and encouragement for today, and hope for tomorrow.
