  • YFC Team Member:

    Become a YFC Team Member by making a two-year monthly pledge of $25, $100, $500 or different amount, or making a two-year annual pledge of $1,000, $5,000, $10,000 or a different amount.

  • Real Estate Donation:

    The value of real estate can often greatly increase the size of your estate. A real estate donation entitles you to a significant current tax deduction and can reduce the value of your estate, which can save or eliminate estate taxes. It can also provide a lifetime monthly income.

  • Donation of Stocks & Mutual Funds:

    Donating appreciated stocks or mutual funds can be a great benefit to both the donor and Youth For Christ. As a donor of an appreciated stock or mutual fund, you are able to avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciation of the asset. Also, as the donor of that security, you get to deduct the full fair market value of the security at the time of the gift, if you have held the security for longer than 12 months.

  • Charitable Gift Annuities:

    An irrevocable gift, generally using cash, maturing CD's, or securities in exchange for lifetime guaranteed payments, the amount of which is based on the value of the gift and the age(s) of the payment recipients. In addition, the donor receives an immediate income tax deduction, and a portion of each payment is tax-free!

  • Will & Trust Bequests:

    A bequest through a will or trust is the most popular form of planned giving. By remembering Youth For Christ in a will or trust, you are looking past your own lifetime to further the work the kingdom through Youth For Christ Endowment Fund. These gifts ensure that Youth For Christ will always be ready to pursue and engage young people.
