What is Legacy Giving?
The Foundation has a new opportunity for you to think about giving a portion of your resources to DBC as you establish your plans in your wills and trusts.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21
A Legacy gift is a present or a future gift, which provides benefits for years to come. Contributions can be given as an endowed or non-endowed gift to benefit DBC.
Contributions by will, trust, life income arrangements or other forms of written designation all represent forms of legacy giving. It can be as easy as naming the Foundation in your will or on the beneficiary form of your retirement accounts, pension account, life insurance policy, or through a more complex instrument like a charitable trust. Current gifts of cash, stock or other financial instruments are also welcomed.
Your gift may be unrestricted for the broad benefit of DBC, or your gift can be restricted for any approved need. Gifts of any size are accepted.
The Foundation is also a wonderful avenue for you to implement a tithing strategy into your future estate plans.
Examples of Funding Recipients:
• Specific ministries or programs within DBC, e.g., children, students, adults
• Missions (global and community)
• Capital projects / facilities
