Your Goals

Your Strategy

Your Benefits

Make a gift for Emmaus’s future that costs you nothing now. Include a gift from your will or trust (cash, specific property, or a share of the estate). A great way to help Emmaus build financial strength and provide resources that maintain our traditions.
Avoid capital gains liability and take an income tax deduction. Use appreciated securities instead of cash to make your gift. Buy low and give high — while avoiding capital gains tax.
Leave more of your estate to your heirs. Name Emmaus as beneficiary of your retirement plan, and leave less-taxed assets to family. Eliminate income tax on retirement plan assets, and free up other property to pass to your heirs.
Create a long-term gift that won’t draw funds from your estate. Create a new life insurance policy, or donate a paid-up policy of coverage you no longer need. Increase your ability to make a significant gift to Emmaus.
Reduce gift and estate taxes and leave more of your assets to your heirs. Create a charitable lead trust to pay income to Emmaus for a fixed time, and then pay the remainder to your heirs. Reduce gift and estate taxes, and freeze the taxable value of growing assets before they pass to your family.
Tap one of the most valuable assets in your portfolio to make a gift to Emmaus. Use real estate to make your gift to Emmaus. Avoid capital gains tax, receive an income tax deduction — and have the option of a gift that doesn’t affect your lifestyle.
