You can also make your regular contributions via credit card. Some people use this tool as a convenient way of writing one rather than multiple checks monthly. Ministries to Christian Nationals can also handle your gifts this way. We currently use Pay Pal for credit card donations.
As a donor to MCN you may want to take advantage of the convenience of making monthly or quarterly contributions automatically through your bank, rather than writing and sending checks each month. Here are some of the reasons you might want to consider switching your contributions to the automatic plan.
It’s very easy to make the switch to MCN’s Electronic Funds Transfer plan. All you need to do is contact your bank either in person or from their web page and follow their instructions.
You can join the Electronic Funds Transfer plan at any time. And, of course, you can stop or change your payment at any time by simply letting your bank know to stop the automatic charge from your account. A record of each contribution will appear on your bank statement, plus MCN will send you a donation statement each time a donation is received and will send you year-end statement summary for income tax purposes. Thank you for your continuing support. We appreciate you and your faithfulness.
Certain gifts, because of size and/or other circumstances, may need to be completed over a longer period of time. Including charitable giving as part of long-range financial and estate planning is a wise investment for some. Such gifts can be made through provisions in a well-drafted will, through revocable living trust arrangements, as beneficiary designations of life insurance policies and retirement plans, and other planning vehicles. Remember, there are no limits on the amount that can be devoted to charitable use while completely bypassing federal gift and estate taxes.
While cash is the most common method of making charitable gifts, there can be significant advantages in making charitable gifts using non-cash property you may own. Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, and other properties can make excellent charitable gifts.
Another reason to make gifts in the form of non-cash property is to enjoy the dual tax incentives the U.S. Congress has provided for this type of gift. When you give property that you have owned longer than a year that has increased in value since you acquired it, you are usually entitled to an income tax deduction for the full current value of the asset, not just your cost basis. You also avoid capital gains tax that would have been payable had you sold the property. Gifts of appreciated assets are generally deductible in an amount up to 30% of adjusted gross income. Any excess deductions can be carried over into as many as the next five tax years.
Giving through a will can be a convenient way to leave a charitable legacy. After providing for your loved ones, you may decide to give a specific asset, a certain amount, a percentage of your estate, or all or a portion of what remains after other commitments have been satisfied.
Giving through revocable living trusts is another avenue to consider. Many people are now using living trusts to provide for their management and final distribution of their assets. Charitable gifts can be rewarding additions to living trusts. Or you may prefer to make a gift today and retain income for the remainder of your life (and/or that of a loved one) through the use of charitable remainder trusts and similar gift plans. Summary
As members of MCN International, each individual or family member is responsible to provide for or raise their own support. Except in a few non-missionary support positions, MCN does not pay salaries.
