Can I include a missionary in my will?
One of the best ways to create a lasting legacy is by including charitable bequests in your will. When making this type of contribution, many factors influence your decision such as your assets, family concerns, and other interests. Here are a few approaches you can apply when using your will to donate to U.S. Missions.

GIVE A SPECIFIC AMOUNT Naming a specific amount in your will can ensure the donation will be put to missionary use. By regularly updating your assets, you can be certain the accurate amount will be given.

GIVE A SPECIFIC PROPERTY If you know a missionary needs a particular item or asset, you can designate that property to them in your will. To be certain the object will be put to good use, check with the recipient.

GIVE A PERCENTAGE To establish a distinction between charitable and non-charitable beneficiaries, think about designating a percentage of assets in your will to U.S. Missions. Using this method automatically adjusts the particular amount as your estate fluctuates.

ALL OR PART OF “WHAT IS LEFT” Family and loved ones should always come first when choosing recipients in your will. If you are uncomfortable bequeathing a specific amount, property, or percentage, consider a gift from the residual or “what is left” of your assets after providing for your loved ones.
What if my employer does matching gifts?
Make your gift dollars go even further through your employer’s matching gift program. Thousands of companies have matching gift programs which double or even triple individual contributions made by employees and retirees to nonprofit organizations.

SIGN UP Ask your employer if they have a matching gift program. If so, obtain a matching gift form from your Human Resources department, fill it out completely, and send it along with your contribution to:
