Make a Gift that is Meaningful to You
You make the work of Preachers' Aid Society possible. We are blessed with the capacity and means to respond to the needs of our pastoral families because generous people just like you have seen the value in this ministry for more than a century. Consider including PAS in your giving plans this year and in years to come as we invite you to share in our ministry and mission. Here are a few concrete ways you can help us through your generous support:
- One Time / Reoccurring Gifts - Select the Click to Give button on the right to give online right now, or send checks made payable to Preachers' Aid Society of New England to 51 Charles Wesley Ct. Wells, ME 04090.
- Gifts of Stock / Appreciated Securities - In many instances stocks, mutual funds, and other securities that have had a long and strong period of appreciation make excellent gifts. In order to receive the maximum tax advantage, the securities themselves may be transferred to the Society, freeing you from some capital gains taxes and giving you other charitable donation tax advantages. Please call us at (217) 467-3246 to make arrangements for this kind of gift.
- Gift Annuities & Charitable Lead Trusts - There are many instruments available to enable you to make a charitable contribution, receive benefits from the taxation codes, AND provide you and your family with extra income for the rest of your life. Our Executive Director would welcome the opportunity to sit with you and explain some of the programs available through the Society – one of the safest places for this kind of annuity security!
- Planned Giving - In addition to annuities and trusts, there are several more ways to make a planned gift that will help your legacy live on through the Preachers' Aid Society of New England. Among other options, many people give by way of wills/estate plans, retirement benefits, and life insurance policies. We would love to connect with you and your attorney to identify the best vehicle for building your legacy with Preachers' Aid. We welcome your call at (217) 467-3246.
