Your thoughtful financial planning is beneficial to you and your family, and enables you to leave a lasting legacy to help the poor and homeless through the ministry of Victory Mission. Planned Giving opportunities include the following:
Wills and Bequests
Every day, Victory Mission strives to make the world better by helping people pull their lives together. Why not leave your mark on the world by supporting our cause through your estate plan or will? By including us in your will, you can specify that some or all of your assets be given to us after your lifetime. When that time comes, the asset/assets you specify will pass to us, and your estate can take a charitable deduction for the amount of your bequest, reducing the estate taxes payable.
To include Victory Mission in your will, we should be named as "Victory Mission, a Missouri not-for-profit corporation, organized and existing under the laws of the State of Missouri, and with the principal business address of P.O. Box 2884, Springfield, MO 65801." Our tax identification number is 13631683.
Please inform us if you add Victory Mission in your will so we can thank you appropriately for your commitment to our ministry.
Gifts of Property (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate)
Making property gifts offers an easy and tax-efficient way to make a lasting contribution to Victory Mission. You will help sustain our ministry, while avoiding capital gain tax and reducing federal income tax.
Name Victory Mission as a beneficiary in your life insurance policy and/or retirement accounts. This is a simple way to give that provides you with tax advantages as well.
A trust can help you manage your assets in a prudent and flexible way. It allows you to design a financial plan that meets your current needs and the needs of beneficiaries who survive you. With a trust, you can protect your assets, cut estate settlement costs and reduce taxes. Among the types of trusts are Living Trust, Testamentary Trust, Charitable Remainder Trust and Charitable Lead Trust.
Planned gifts can take as many forms as a good imagination inspired by love can dream up. We look forward to help you explore your options as you consider making a long-lasting gift to us. If you have any questions, please call 417.864.2226.
