There are many ways to make year-round gifts to support Bethel.
Gifts of cash support ministry today and eliminate or reduce income tax on up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income.
Gifts of appreciated stock, bonds, or mutual funds can be deductible at full market value for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income and allow you to bypass capital gains tax.
Gifts from your IRA: Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) are mandatory for IRA owners who are 70½ or older. Charitable deductions can be taken for the same amount as the gift.
Life income agreements such as charitable gift annuities and charitable trusts can provide income for life and then support your favorite ministry. They can be funded in a variety of ways and may provide an annuity payment greater than the income your assets are currently producing.
Bequests allow you to make a significant gift to ministry without reducing your current income. A distribution agreement or memorial endowment fund, funded through a bequest, provides choices and flexibility on how your gift is used and named.
