Planned Giving at the River of Grass
First and foremost, planned giving is about getting your act together.
Do you know where all your financial stuff is? Do you have a forgotten IRA from a previous employer? Is there a financial account where you named a former spouse as beneficiary, for whom you no longer feel affection?
Is there anyone else who should know where all your stuff is? Do you keep a list of your passwords? About 60% of Americans do not have a Last Will and Testament. If you do not write one, the State of Florida has one in place for you. What do you want the court to do with your stuff? This is the planning part of planned giving. Maybe you would even want some of your stuff to go to the River of Grass, maybe as second in line behind another beneficiary, or first?
So here, planned giving starts out as a ministry. We can help you get your act together. There are three kinds of giving that happen at the River of Grass: the Annual Budget Drive. a future Capital Campaign for our own building (later, not now), and Planned Gifts that might go the Benevolence Fund, a Memorial, a favorite project, a Legacy Fund (give now for something special decided later), or even a Deficit Buster.
