If you are like most people, you probably will not use all of your retirement assets during your lifetime. Donating part or all of your unused retirement assets such as a gift from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan is an excellent way to make a gift to the ministry of your choice.
Did you know that your retirement assets can incur a significant tax liability if you leave them to your heirs at your death? Another option is to leave your heirs assets that receive a step-up in basis (such as real estate and stock) and give the retirement assets to Church of the Nazarene Foundation. As a charity, we are not taxed upon receiving an IRA or other retirement plan assets. Your estate will benefit from an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift.
