Planned Giving Options
Including us in a bequest/will is an easy process. The bequest can be specific or general. You can give the direction and we can help with the legal "wording" and provide examples for your lawyer.
The best stocks to donate are those that have increased greatly in value, particularly those producing a low yield.
The new law states that people age 70 1/2 and older can instruct IRA trustees to make transfers to organizations they support without incurring taxable income on those amounts.
You can donate a life insurance policy to us, or simply name us as the beneficiary. What about us owning, but the donor making payments? Those payments are then gifts…
If you own property that has appreciated in value, an outright gift of your real estate may be a simple solution.
Retirement Plan Assets
Preserve more of your estate for the people and organizations that matter most in your life by making arrangements now for a gift to the University.
There are several types of trusts designed to help you make the right gift – Charitable Lead Trust and Charitable Remainder Unitrust produce a value for the University and your family.
Gift in Kind
Gifts-in-kind are non-monetary items of tangible personal property such as art, books, equipment, automobiles, and other personal assets of materials that represent value to Concordia University Irvine.
"Put your hope in God who richly provides us with everything." 1 Timothy 6:17b
