A Michigan Masonic Charitable Foundation Charitable Gift Annuity provides a safe way to protect your investment, secures a high rate of interest, and guarantees a dependable source of income. A two-life Charitable Gift Annuity also guarantees income for your beneficiary. By providing immediate tax relief and the potential of tax-free retirement income, Charitable Gift Annuities offer a smart way to invest your assets while supporting the Michigan Masonic Charitable Foundation. What is a Charitable Gift Annuity and how does it work? A Charitable Gift Annuity is a contract between a donor and a charity under which the donor transfers funds to the charity in exchange for a partial tax deduction and a lifetime stream of income. With a Charitable Gift Annuity you experience the joy of helping others and enjoy the security and peace of mind that a guaranteed lifetime income brings. Want more information?

Because these men are not the bragging sort, the communities in which they serve are often unaware of the good work being done around them. However, for the many people whose lives are personally touched by the kind hand of a Mason, the lack of publicity does little to detract from Left to Right: Francis Martin, Secretary; Jerry Chambers, the importance of the help they give.

By definition, a bequest is a gift you pass to a person or entity through your will. There are several ways to write a bequest, each yielding a slightly different result. Charitable bequests are unique in that they provide unlimited deductions from federal estate and most state inheritance taxes. Leveraging this benefit can often result in a larger estate passing to your family and friends. If you decide to make a charitable bequest to our organization, you’ll need to choose the type of bequest that best fits your needs. Specific bequest: This kind of bequest specifies an exact dollar amount or specific asset from your estate, such as stocks, bonds, or perhaps a piece of real estate or artwork if appropriate. Residuary bequest: This bequest directs that either all or a percentage of your estate’s residue — what’s left after the other terms of your will have been satisfied — be paid to the charitable organization. Percentage bequest: A bequest may be expressed as a percentage of your estate. Expressed in this way, your wishes are guaranteed regardless of whether your estate grows larger or smaller. Here are a few samples of bequest language to get you started: OPTION 1: “I give all the rest, residue and remainder of my estate to the Michigan Masonic Charitable Foundation located at Alma, Michigan to be deposited in its Endowment Fund.” OPTION 2: “I give the sum of $_______ to the Michigan Masonic Charitable Foundation located at Alma, MI to be deposited in its endowment fund.” Living Better 13 Winter 2010 Calendar of Events Florida Reunion January 29, 2011 Arizona Reunion February 26, 2011 Masonic Pathways Junior Deacon Day Saturday, March 19, 2011 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Grand Lodge Annual Communication May 24 and 25, 2011 soaring Eagle casino and Resort Mt.
