Ways To Make History Your Legacy

A Gift in Your Will or Trust

With as little as one sentence, you can make a gift in your will or trust to support preservation efforts at Gloria Dei (Old Swedes’) Church. You can even opt to give a set amount or a percentage of your estate. Either way, your support ensures we have the resources to preserve this national historic site for future generations. 

A Gift From Your IRA

If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to give to the Historic Gloria Dei Preservation Corporation and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity without having to pay income taxes on the money.

Gifts of Stocks or Mutual Funds

If you’re looking for a tax-smart way to save history, consider a gift of stock. When you give appreciated stock or mutual funds that you’ve owned for more than one year, you can avoid capital gains tax and receive a charitable income tax deduction when you itemize.
