Legacy and Memorials

Gifting (often in memory of loved ones) – may allow you to earn income tax deductions and to transfer money out of your estate to avoid additional estate taxes while leaving a legacy gift to our beloved St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church.

It could be as simple as providing a bequest of cash in your will or living trust. Charitable gifts distributed at the time of your death provide estate tax deductions. Unlike income tax, however, these deductions are unlimited, which means that you can donate even more, tax-free.

Ways to Give:

·         Bequests in your will or living trust

·         Donation of Appreciated Securities

·         Life Insurance Donations (St. Nicholas named as beneficiary)

·        Charitable Trusts

·        Retirement Assets (St. Nicholas named as beneficiary)
