PLANNED GIVING


AMG International's Ministry for Estate Planning and Gift Design

When you think of stewardship, you often think of tithes or the use of resources, but the concept also includes planning for the distribution of your estate. AMG International works with Barnabas Foundation to help our ministry partners with their estate plans. Creating an estate plan helps you to make a difference for the future, benefit from tax savings, take care of loved ones, increase retirement income, and steward God's provision.

Wills & Bequests

Including a charitable bequest (cash, securities, real estate or other assets) in your will is a simple way to make a lasting gift to AMG international. Most estates have three categories of beneficiaries: heirs, charitable organizations and the government. We encourage you to maximize your gifts to the first two and limit the third. This can be accomplished through careful estate planning.

A bequest is the easiest, most tangible way to create a lasting legacy. It is a gift made through your will, living trust or with codicil directing a gift to AMG International. There are several ways to structure a bequest by indicating:
  • A specific dollar amount
  • A percentage of your estate
  • A specific piece of real estate
  • A specific piece of personal property 
  • The residue of your estate
Benefits of Making a Bequest
Benefits of Making a Request 
  • A bequest is generally a revocable gift that can be changed or modified at any time. 
  • You leave a lasting legacy for you and your family, and an enduring impact on AMG International.
  • You lessen the burden of taxes on your family as bequests are exempt from federal estate taxes.
  • It is an easy way to make an end-of-life gift to a non-profit organization or ministry that is impacting the Kingdom.

Please contact Theresa Davis, Senior Director of Advancement, if you have any questions about how to make a bequest gift to AMG International. Theresa can be reached at (423) 894-6060, ext. 334, or via email at theresad@amginternational.org.

Please let us know when you have included AMG International in your estate plans so we can properly thank you for your thoughtful generosity.

You can rest assured that your gift will help AMG International's global ministry efforts aimed at meeting people's deepest spiritual and physical needs.

Stock Gifts

AMG International gladly accepts gifts of securities, both publicly-traded and closely-held. Gifting appreciated securities to AMG can provide special tax benefits to the donor compared to a similar gift of cash. By gifting appreciated securities that have been owned for longer than one year, you can qualify for a charitable income tax deduction based upon the security's full fair market value regardless of the cost basis. You can also avoid capital gains taxes that would have occurred if the stock had been sold.

Publicly-traded securities can be given to AMG quickly and easily. You simply instruct your broker to wire transfer the desired securities directly from your brokerage account to AMG's account. The charitable gift, which is completed when the security is received in the account, is valued by taking the average of the high and low price of the security on that day.

Our one page instruction sheet lays out the simple steps for transferring securities to AMG International and can be downloaded here. If you have any questions, please contact Theresa Davis, Senior Director of Advancement, via email at theresad@amginternational.org. Theresa can also be reached at (423) 894-6060, ext. 334.

Thank you for your generosity. Your gift will provide resources for AMG to meet people's deepest needs in Jesus' name.
