A charitable gift from your estate is a favored method of giving that enables you to achieve your financial goals, maintain control of your assets, and benefit Diakon.
While you may transfer many of your assets through your will or living trust, a document called a beneficiary designation controls distribution of your retirement plans, life insurance policies, commercial annuities and a variety of financial accounts.
Planned giving is a great way to support Diakon while generating income for yourself and your family. Learn about the gifts that allow you to give to Diakon while generating income for yourself and your family.
