Rowan Helping Ministries can help you and your financial advisers develop a planned gift that meets your philanthropic and financial goals. A planned gift is one that is originated during your lifetime but not available to Rowan Helping Ministries until after your death or some other later event.
Types of Planned Gifts
A gift from your will (or from a trust) allows you to make a future gift to your fund at Rowan Helping Ministries. This is the simplest way to provide for your community and may reduce your estate tax liability. The sample bequest language below is provided to assist donors and their attorneys in making gifts to a fund at Rowan Helping Ministries. Please consult your attorney before executing a new will or a codicil to your existing will.

Retirement Plan Assets
Retirement plan assets may be ideal assets for use in meeting philanthropic goals because they can be subject to various layers of taxation upon death, including estate and income tax.

You may use one or more life insurance policies to make a future gift to Rowan Helping Ministries. To use a life insurance policy to make a gift to Rowan Helping Ministries, you could name Rowan Helping Ministries as the beneficiary of a new or existing policy or transfer ownership of a new or existing policy to the Rowan Helping Ministries.
