Planned gifts offer you smart and creative ways to support CPO – often while benefitting your family, too.

By understanding the available options, you can multiply the results of your generosity in ways that are simple, flexible, cost-effective and powerful.

Gifts From Your IRA
Individuals ages 70 ½ and older can make a sizable gift from an individual retirement account (IRA) to CPO and receive significant tax benefits in return.

Giving Stock, Real Estate or Other Assets
You may be able to increase your potential impact –and reduce your taxes – by giving non-cash assets.

Examples of non-cash assets:
• Stock or marketable securities
• Real estate
• Business interests
• Farm commodities
• Tangible personal property

Gifts in a Will
By including charitable giving in your will, you model to your loved ones a legacy of generosity. You also help ensure CPO continues to make a difference well beyond your lifetime.

Gifts That Pay You Income
Lifetime income gifts are wonderful solutions for Christians who wish to give in a substantial way, but are concerned about having enough retirement income. You can give cash or other property, and receive steady income for the rest of your life. The remainder will benefit CPO.
