Leave a Legacy

For Future Generations
Honor the Lord with your substance, and with the first-fruits of your increase...
- Proverbs 3:9

Are you planning for the next generation? 

Our opportunity is to honor the Lord Jesus as wise stewards of money and possessions. By taking advantage of tax-efficient benefits, you can fuel Gospel work now and after your death. With a wise plan, you can provide long-lasting support of Emmaus Bible College while enjoying financial benefits. 

Legacy Gift & Estate Planning Opportunities

Last Will & Testament

A Christian Will involves planning that reflects the believer’s understanding of his or her position as a steward of the Lord Jesus Christ. This is an important document that reflects your desires and values.

Charitable Gift Annuities

A Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) enables you to give a tax-advantageous gift in exchange for an annuity. This annuity provides you with a lifelong income stream, and upon death, the balance is distributed to Emmaus.

Beneficiary Designation Gifts

A beneficiary designation gift is a simple and affordable way to make a gift to support Emmaus. You can designate the college as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or of a retirement, investment, or bank account. 

Charitable Remainder Trust

A Charitable Remainder Trust is a tax-exempt irrevocable trust that reduces taxable income. It provides an annual payout to beneficiaries for a specified period of time. After that time, the remainder is given to Emmaus.

Revocable Living Trust

A Revocable Living Trust (RLT) can add flexibility, security, and privacy to almost any estate plan, large or small, and can help avoid lengthy probate processes.

Donor Advised Fund

Donor Advised Fund (DAF) allows you to contribute assets and manage donations that can be given to Emmaus, either immediately or over time, while providing tax benefits for you.
