LEGACY GIFTS TO CLAY CHURCH
Your generosity helps us transform lives with the love of Jesus by:
Bringing more people of all ages closer to Jesus.
Supporting families and children in our community.
Feeding people spiritually and physically.
Caring for people in the midst of life transtions.
Meeting needs through mission locally and around the world.
You can include Clay Church in your will or living trust by:
Giving a cash gift of a specific amount.
Naming Clay Church as a beneficiary in your will or trust, designating the specific gift of your choice (for example, real estate, personal property, or securities).
Leaving a portion of the remainder of your estate after all other gifts are made.
With this gift, you maintain complete control of your assets during your lifetime.

WAYS TO GIVE
For donors 701/2 or older, a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from an IRA allows you to donate directly from your account to Clay Church, reducing your taxable income, even if you don’t itemize. Here’s how it works:
You can make a gift to Clay Church through a QCD starting at age 701⁄2, even if you are not yet required to take a RMD.
Your gift can be any amount up to $100,000 for individuals or $200,000 for couples, and must be transferred directly from your plan administrator to Clay Church.
If you are 72 years of age or older, making a qualified charitable distribution can satisfy all or a part of your RMD.
QUALIFIED CHARITABLE DISTRIBUTION (QCD)
DONOR ADVISED FUND (DAF)
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving account that provides an immediate tax benefit to you and allows you to grant funds to charities of your choice. A donor-advised fund is a great way to manage your giving to Clay Church and other charities in a simple and efficient way.
GIFTS OF APPRECIATED SECURITIES
You may be able to give more with less and save on taxes by donating appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds to Clay Church. If you have owned the asset for more than one year, you may receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock (up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income) and avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock.
EVERY GIFT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
- 2 Corinthians 9:7
