The Dallas Chapter meets monthly, usually on the third Thursday, for a luncheon and program. We invite anyone serving in an administrative capacity in the local church or other religious institutions or businesses that specialize in church services to join us for fellow ship and professional development. We look forward to seeing you at our monthly luncheons and we're confident you will discover the valuable and enjoyable associations that we have.
February Luncheon Seminar
Thursday, February 20, 11:30am
With Rev. Richard Caperton, President & Managing Partner,
Many of us have dreams for our church. Some have visions for youth programs or ministries that address critical issues in the local community or abroad. For others the dream might include provisions for church building maintenance or an expansion of the church's music program. In most churches, the interest is there, but funds are limited. Planned gifts can provide the necessary financial resources to help make these dreams a reality.
A planned gift is any gift, large or small, given with forethought. A planned gift to your church is a financial gift structured to serve the needs of the church as well as the giver. A planned gift may take the form of an outright gift during a donor's lifetime, a bequest through their will or other estate plan, a trust, or a life income gift.
These gifts usually come from accumulated assets such as personal property, real estate, stocks, bonds, life insurance policies, cash, or other assets of tangible value. Often these gifts can be structured to take advantage of allowable income and estate tax incentives.
