Giving

Grace Village is a Christian non-profit retirement community. The facility relies on individuals, churches, and businesses for the financial support essential to the growth of the ministry of Grace Village. If you wish to give, listed here are the tax-deductible opportunities to consider:

Caring Friends Endowment
The Caring Friends Endowment has been established at Grace Village to provide an ongoing source of assistance to those residents whose resources have been depleted. By giving to this fund, you are removing the financial burden of residents who have “outlived their funds.” Many of us wish to assist those in need and the Caring Friends Endowment provides that opportunity.

Memorial or Honorarium
Gifts to Grace Village in memory or in honor of a loved-one or friend are always welcome. Memorial funds may be used according to the desire of the donor. Currently, many are donating funds for the remodeling of the Health Care wing. Each remodeled room will have a plague detailing the memorial or honor of a loved one.

The Village Legacy 
The Village Legacy was created to encourage individuals to strengthen the Grace Village ministry by deferred giving, to continue Grace Village’s rich heritage of giving, and to appreciate those who help secure Grace Village’s future.

Bequests
Bequests have been a significant way donors have given to Grace Village throughout its history.  These gifts have strengthened Grace Village’s financial base and enabled the organization to carry out its mission.

Bequests are an important gift planning tool for persons who are committed to the mission of Grace Village and who want to share their assets once they no longer need them.  For persons who are unable to make an immediate gift of cash or securities, a bequest is often the answer.

Estate distributions, by wills or trust support the mission of Grace Village.

Other Deferred Gift Arrangements
Deferred gifts are financial arrangements used in charitable estate planning. Deferred gifts have a charitable benefit as the remaining principle becomes a gift at death.  This gift provides Grace Village with the tools to carry out its mission.  Examples of deferred gifts arrangements are:

  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Charitable Lead Trust

Other forms may include:

  • Insurance Policies
  • Retirements Plan Assets
  • Real Estate
