A Christ-centered financial plan helps you be a wise steward with what the Lord has entrusted to you. Biblical generosity produces “the fruit that increases to your credit” (Philippians 4:17 ESV), so you can effectively accomplish what God leads you to do on earth while laying up treasures in heaven.
Planned giving enhances current and future income, results in tax savings, and leaves a godly legacy for the people and ministries you love. The resources provided here will help you determine which way is best for you. Our caring team stands ready to assist you through this easy process. Through prayer, wise counsel, and effective planning, you can help change lives in Jesus’ Name.

Invest Through Securities
You can make a bigger impact by donating long-term appreciated securities, including stock, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to Heart for Lebanon. Compared with donating cash, or selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction. For example when you donate stock to Heart for Lebanon, you’ll generally take a tax deduction for the full fair market value. This type of giving enables many people to give more than they otherwise could have by reducing their ordinary income taxes and avoiding capital gains taxes.

Invest From Your IRA
If you are 70½ or older, you can give your required minimum distribution (or any amount up to $100,000) from your IRA as a tax-free rollover gift. Many donors also give from their IRA at their passing, designating Heart for Lebanon as a beneficiary; such gifts avoid income and death taxes.
