“Of the three rules which are laid down … you may find many that observe the first rule, namely, ‘Gain all you can.’ You may find a few that observe the second, ‘Save all you can.’ But, how many have you found that observe the third rule, ‘Give all you can’?" – John Wesley
Leave a Legacy
For many, charitable giving is a way of life. Whether it is to support an organization that has touched your life in a meaningful way, a school or university that put you on the road to success, or simply a cause that you feel passionate about, charitable giving not only offers emotional benefits, but practical ones as well.
For motivated donors, one question is how much to give throughout your lifetime and what to leave as charitable gifts in your will or trust.
For those who are not concerned about the use of the assets during their lifetime – for care, or enjoyment – a charitable gift may be a regular occurrence. Others may choose to pass on assets after their death, in addition to, or sometimes in place of, passing on assets to family members.
The options for charitable giving within an estate plan are varied. One option is to make a gift at death through a will or trust, which would then reduce the amount of the donor’s estate, and thus any estate taxes that would need to be paid.
Enjoy the ease and convenience of being a monthly donor while providing ongoing support and stability for our work.

Gifts of Stock
Giving stock that has been held more than 12 months, offers a two-fold tax savings: a tax-deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift and capital gains may be avoided. For stock transfer information contact us 920-980-9830.
Your gift to Campus Life may have an even greater impact if your
employer offers a matching gift program. Contact your company representative to see if your employer matches charitable donations.
Make traditional gift-giving occasions particularly meaningful by helping
youth and families have a brighter future. Whether it is Mother’s or Father’s Day, a birthday, wedding, anniversary, or other occasion, consider asking those who are celebrating with you to give a donation to Campus Life in lieu of gifts.
In Memory & In Honor Gifts
Honor the memory of your loved one by making a gift in their name. All memorial gifts will be acknowledged through a personal card to the family of your loved one. The same is true for gifts in honor of living friends and family members by making a gift in their name. Acknowledgement cards will be sent to them as well.
Check with your employer to see if they offer the option of
donating to a charity through the convenience of payroll reduction.
IRA Charitable Giving
Individual Retirement Account (IRA) owners over age 70½ may
make a transfer of up to $100,000 per year to qualified charities, including Campus Life. IRA charitable rollovers are tax-free and not included in adjusted gross income. An IRA charitable rollover may fulfill part or all of your required minimum distribution (RMD).
Planned gifts allow your values to continue beyond your lifetime.
Planned gifts are typically made through your will or estate plans to benefit Campus Life after you are gone.
A bequest through your will allows you to designate a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate to Campus Life. A bequest showcases your values to your heirs and can reduce the amount of your taxable estate, which may increase the actual amount available to loved ones.
