Planned Giving

Leave a legacy.

In addition to giving a one-time monetary gift or making a pledge, you can be a part of Bethel’s mission by choosing from many unique planned giving options. Life insurance, non-cash assets, and securities are just a few of the tools Bethel donors use to benefit their financial situation and make a gift to Bethel students at the same time.

Life Insurance

A gift of life insurance is an excellent way to advance a cause you care about while receiving an income tax deduction. If you have a policy that has outlasted its original purpose—for example, a policy you purchased to provide for children who are now financially independent adults—consider making Bethel the new beneficiary.

Non-Cash Assets

Donate personal property such as a piece of artwork, an antique, jewelry, or even a car or boat. You can also give real estate. This type of giving provides you with an immediate income tax deduction without capital gains tax, while at the same time benefiting Bethel. 


By giving securities such as mutual funds, bonds, notes, or mortgages, you capitalize on national tax laws, which offer special incentives for non-cash property gifts.
