Planned Giving: A Legacy of Hope and Blessing
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
– Proverbs 3:5-6
A planned gift has an incredible impact on the work of Water Mission. Leave a legacy of hope for children and families in need of safe water by joining the Legacy Society through a future gift to Water Mission in your will or trust, or other estate plans.
It’s essential to take care of your family and loved ones first. Yet many find great satisfaction in expanding their future plans to include missions and ministries that are important to them. If you would like to extend the impact of your generosity beyond your lifetime, there are many ways to do so.
Ways of Giving
Bequest through a Will or Living Trust
Your will or trust is an important way to care for loved ones and provide additional support for causes that are important to you. The following language and legal address may be helpful to your attorney:
“I give, devise and bequeath to Water Missions International, doing business as Water Mission, P.O. Box 71489, N. Charleston, SC 29415-1489, the sum of $__________ or the following described property, to wit: _________, or ____ percent of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate.” Tax ID Number: 57-1116978
Set up a permanent life insurance policy with the insurance company of your choice. Name Water Missions International as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, or assign the policy to Water Missions International and use the cash value as a charitable deduction.
Securities or Financial Accounts
Name Water Missions International as a beneficiary of bank accounts or securities.
