Planned Giving

When you support Camp Mennoscah through the powerful tools of planning giving, your generosity will help camp promote Christian faith development through camps and retreats. Among the benefits, gift plans offer a way to increase your impact, carry out your charitable wishes, and possibly receive tax advantages. 

What can you give?

Cash is a common gift, but you can also donate many other assets, sometimes with significant tax advantages. These can include stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, farm commodities, life insurance, IRAs, and other retirement accounts. 

What gifts help now?

Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) and IRA Rollover

If you are 70 1/2 or older, the IRS requires you to take a minimum distribution (RMD) from your Individual Retirement Account. By having all or part of your RMD transferred directly to Camp Mennoscah, the portion of your RMD sent to camp is tax exempt. 

Donor advised funds

You may donate cash or other assets (see above) to your own donor advised fund. The asset is usually sold and the money is available for distribution to Camp Mennoscah at any time you wish. This tool is particularly advantageous for appreciated assets. 

Family endowments

Individuals can give assets, including bequests, to establish a donor advised fund in your family name. It is an alternative to a family foundation. The family decides together about annual charitable contributions, and as a resutl, establishes a legacy of giving. 

Charitable lead trusts

This arrangement provides current income from your gifted assets to Camp Mennoscah for a period of time but returns the assets to you or your heirs. 

What gifts help later?

Charitable bequest plans

Indicate in your will, or by beneficiary designation, that a portion of your assets should be left as a bequest to Camp Mennoscah. A bequest may simplify your estate and reduce estate and inheritance taxes.

Life Insurance

Give an existing policy or apply for a new one, of which Mennonite Foundation is both owner and beneficiary. Annual premiums can be paid through your donor advised fund and Camp Mennoscah will receive the life insurance proceeds upon your death. 

Retained life interest

You give your home or farm while continuing to live on the property for your lifetime. You receive an immediate tax deduction, and the property is sold at your passing, with the proceeds distributed according to your charitable recommendations.

What gifts give back to you?

Gift annuities

You may give cash or securities, and in return, you receive guaranteed lifetime annuity payments at a fixed rate. At the end of your lifetime, the remainder goes to Camp Mennoscah. Immediate or deferred annuities are available. 

Charitable remainder trusts

A gift of real estate or securities is received into a trust, converted to cash and invested. You receive income from the trust, and the remainder goes to Camp Mennoscah after you pass away.
