Types of Gifts

Gifts from your Will & Estate

By including Peoria Rescue Ministries in your will, you will support the work of rescue for many years to come.  A specific dollar amount, a particular asset, or a fixed percentage of your estate may be designated to Peoria Rescue Ministries. 


Donor Advised Funds

America’s Most Popular Tool for Charitable Giving

A donor advised fund (DAF) is like having your own private foundation.  Once created, you can recommend grants from your DAF to your preferred charitable ministries at any time.  A DAF gives you an immediate tax deduction for the market value of your donation, but allows you time to decide which ministries you want to support. 


Charitable Gift Annuities

A charitable gift annuity is an agreement in which a fixed income, based on age, will be paid out to you in return for an initial gift.  It is a great way to make a gift to Peoria Rescue Ministries, while at the same time creating a fixed income stream for life.


Security Gifts

Gifts of securities can be an excellent alternative to cash gifts.  By donating your appreciated stock, bonds, mutual funds or other securities, you can avoid the capital gains taxes required if you were to instead sell the security and donate cash.  Plus, your gift of securities qualifies for a charitable tax deduction.
