We have been able to share our mission of “reflecting the words and work of the faithful throughout the Anglican Communion” only because of the continued generosity of our many faithful readers and partners. Our modest endowment cannot cover the costs associated with our ministry. Would you consider supporting our mission, giving us the tools necessary to expand our work? All gifts to The Anglican Digest are fully tax-deductible.

For example, many benefactors prefer to prayerfully predetermine the amount of their gift and pay it over time – per month, per quarter or per year. Please click to download a pledge card.

Legacy in Stone
Help The Anglican Digest “reflect the words and work of the faithful throughout the Anglican Communion” by leaving your legacy in stone. With your gift of $100 or more, you are eligible to have your name or the name of a loved one permanently engraved on a brick for placement at the foot of the Hillspeak Memorial Cross. The bricks serve as daily reminders to all who pass that we are called to be thankful for our benefactors who help make our work possible. For more information, please contact us.
Gifts of Securities
Appreciated Securities make a fantastic gift. Giving long-term appreciated stock offers you a two-fold tax saving. First, you avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in value of your stock. In addition, you receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift. In order to preserve tax advantages, make sure you transfer the physical securities or gift the stock certificate rather than giving the proceeds of a sale. For income tax purposes the value of such gifts may be deducted up to 30% of adjusted gross income, with an additional five-year carry forward if needed. The staff of The Anglican Digest is available to help you make a gift of stock both quick and convenient.
If you own a life insurance policy that is no longer needed, it could be the perfect gift vehicle for a 2012 year-end charitable gift. You can contribute a life insurance policy either by declaring SPEAK as the owner of the policy or simply the beneficiary. If you name SPEAK as the owner and the beneficiary, in most cases you will be entailed to an income tax deduction limited to the lower fair market value of the policy or your cost basis in the contract. It’s easy to contribute a life insurance policy – just check with your life insurance agent for details on which forms to complete.
When you consider your income taxes, it may also be a good time to consider long-term tax savings. Federal estate taxes can still take a sizable portion of one’s estate at the time of death. That’s a higher tax bite than the income tax! It definitely pays to do some advance planning with your attorney and a gift planner. We hope you will consider a charitable bequest in your will to benefit the work of The Anglican Digest while you save estate tax dollars at the same time. Different types of bequests include a fixed amount, a specific property, residuary, percentage of residuary and contingent.
Gifts of Real Estate
If you owned your home, a vacation home, acreage, or a farm for many years, a charitable gift of that real estate can be especially tax-advantageous. The property may have so appreciated in value over the years that its sale would result in a sizable capital gains tax. If given to a nonprofit entity such as SPEAK, you avoid the capital gains tax and realize a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the real estate. It also removes this large asset from your taxable estate.
Other Assets to Give
Other assets may also be used to fund a substantial gift to SPEAK, including appreciated securities, real estate, property, business interests, retirement plans, life insurance, and many others. Should you wish to receive more information, please contact us at 800-572-7929 or use our online contact form.
Gifts that Pay You
You can make a gift to SPEAK through a trust or annuity that will pay you or another beneficiary income for life. Upon the death of the last income beneficiary, the remaining corpus of the trust or annuity is transferred to SPEAK. Your gift can be designated for a specific purpose or applied to the ongoing needs of SPEAK. Should you wish to learn more, please contact us at 800-572-7929 or use our online contact form.
