Monthly Bank Draft
If you make a pledge or larger gift commitment you can choose to deduct smaller monthly payments to meet your commitment from a checking account or credit card. To discuss bank or credit card draft, please contact the Business Office at 731-352-4044.
Because terms for payment on pledges are flexible, you can plan a way to give to Bethel that is both convenient and tax smart. A pledge allows you the opportunity to offer a more significant gift than you might be able to make otherwise.
Be sure to check with your employer and with your spouse’s employer to see if the companies match contributions made by employees or their spouses. Many times, matching programs can double or even triple the value of your personal contribution. Check with your Human Resources Office or corporate website to see if your employer will match your gift to Bethel.
A gift-in-kind is a gift to Bethel other than actual cash. This could include art collections, books, computers, equipment, or even certain types of services. Most gift-in-kinds are eligible for a tax deduction. Please contact the Business Office at 731-352-4044.
Transferring ownership of property to Bethel can help you avoid capital gains taxes, reduce federal estate taxes, lower your current income tax and possibly increase your income.
Securities can be made as outright gifts or as payment on pledge. Stock certificates can be reassigned directly to Bethel, or they may be transferred through the donor’s broker. The mean market value on the date of the transfer will determine the value of the gift for tax purposes. Please contact the Business Office at 731-352-4044.
