Planned Giving

Support ministry for years to come with a planned gift to CEP.

When you’ve been careful with your finances, it feels good to use some of your wealth to expand the Kingdom, assist those in need, or empower ministries for the future. Consider the opportunity to create a lasting legacy by leaving a planned gift to Church Extension Plan. Your gift will be used to enable ambitious, community-oriented ministries throughout the country. In addition, you will be able to reduce tax burdens and could receive fixed payments for life—dependent on the gift option you choose.

Types of Planned Giving

  • A Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) is essentially a contract between you and CEP. When you gift your asset to us, we will make fixed payments to you (and/or another person) for life. The fixed income can be higher than other interest payouts depending on your age. A portion of your income stream may be even tax-free. At the end of your life, the money will be used to support ministry.
  • A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. You simply include language in your will or trust that specifies CEP as a part of your estate. A bequest may be made as a gift of a percentage of your estate, of a specific dollar amount or asset, or from the balance/residue of your estate.
  • An IRA charitable rollover is one way you can help further our mission and also benefit this year. If you are 70 ½ or older, you may also be interested in a way to lower the income and taxes from your IRA withdrawals. An IRA rollover allows you to reduce your taxable income, satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year, and much more!
