Gift Planning Service
Did you know that giving cash, writing a check, or donating online are not the only ways you can financially support God’s work in Minnesota? Cash donations are certainly always needed and are gratefully received. But sometimes it might make more sense to give assets you own instead that have grown in value like Stocks, Bonds, Cryptocurrencies, Real Estate other than your home, unused land, IRA funds if you’re 70 ½ or older, or other valuable property. In addition to receiving an Income Tax Deduction for your gift, you may also be able to Bypass Capital Gains Taxes (up to 30% or more on the gain) between federal and state. That means your gift to your local church, school, North Star Camp, Maplewood Academy, Evangelism, or any of the ministries of the Minnesota Conference you want to support could actually go much further than just giving cash. If you would like to learn more about how you can support the ministries of the Minnesota Conference using appreciated assets you own, please contact us today and let us help you find the best solution to meet your goals and wishes. (763) 424-8923; www.mnsdagift.org; email@example.com.
Maplewood Academy is now accepting applications for the 2021-2022 school year. Applications can be filled out online at www.maplewoodacademy.org/admissions. If you'd like to visit campus, we can arrange a tour for you. Give us a call: 320.587.2830.
