ST. LUKE'S FOUNDATION
Leaving a Legacy
Ways to Give to the Foundation
Gifts of stock, bonds, or mutual funds
Charitable annuities and/or charitable trusts
Life insurance policy with St. Luke's Foundation named as beneficiary
Inclusion of St. Luke's Foundation in your will or trust
Is a will or trust part of your estate plan? Gifts are normally tax deductible. Donors should always seek advice from their attorneys or tax professionals.
Gifts given to the Foundation may be undesignated and are used in various ministry areas that are not generally covered in the annual budget.
Designated gifts to the Foundation are also encouraged. The donor specifies a particular ministry area where they direct their gifts. In some cases, the donor may prefer to designate their gift to the Foundation as an endowment, in which the principal would be maintained and only earnings could be directed to one or more ministry areas.
