Planned Giving

Non-Cash Gifts

Charity Motors
Did you know that over 90% of the world’s wealth is held in assets, not cash? That means that most of your giving capacity is tied up in your “stuff,” not your checkbook. We’ve teamed with Charity Motors and they can now accept pretty much any vehicle you want to give, turn it into cash and give the donation back to NorthRidge. Donors will be sent an acknowledgement letter; including a description of the donated item and date it was received. Check out Charity Motors for more information.

Property
In certain circumstances, NorthRidge is able to accept the donation of property to help further the mission of the Church. Email Us to discuss your potential investment in our mission.

Ministry Items
NorthRidge is happy to accept items that can help us further our mission to “Wake The World Up to Jesus”. If you have an item you’d like to donate, please Email Us to tell us all about it!

Gift Cards
NorthRidge is privileged to be able to assist families in need by providing gift cards to various retail stores. If you’d like to partner with us in this, you can drop them off at our front desk any time in an envelope marked “Attention: Business Office.”

In addition, you pay no capital gains tax on the difference between your cost and the fair market value.

Life Insurance Beneficiary

A current life insurance policy can be transferred to NorthRidge, for which you receive an immediate income tax deduction for the cash surrender value.

Estate Planning
Everyone has an estate and when we pass into eternity, it will all go somewhere. By making NorthRidge a part of your estate plan, you can ensure that your legacy will live on in the lives of those impacted for the Kingdom.

Planned Gifts
If you have planned in advance to give a gift as part of your overall personal financial strategy (retirement assets, bequests, trusts, etc.), we recommend that you discuss your decision with your tax and/or financial advisor.

There are several types of gifts that may fall under this category, many of which are very simple to make and do not require any formal communication to us. These include:

Retirement Assets
Name NorthRidge as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k) or other qualified retirement plan. Any amounts left in your plan will transfer to NorthRidge free of income and estate tax.

Bequests
You can name NorthRidge in your will as a beneficiary, and your estate will receive an income tax deduction for the value of your bequest. A bequest written in a will can be made for either a percentage or an amount.

Other types of planned giving include gifts that may be more long-term in nature. For example:

Charity Gift Annuity
Cash or marketable securities are transferred to a charitable organization in exchange for a current income tax deduction and the organization’s promise to make fixed annual payments to you for life.

Charity Lead Trust
Cash or marketable securities are transferred to a trust, which makes fixed payments to the charitable organization over a specified period of time, then transfers the remaining assets to your heirs.

If you are interested in any of these ways to give, please Email Us.

Employer sponsored donations
Many companies enjoy giving matching donations to organizations that their employees support financially. Check with your employer and make your gift go further!
