- Support ChI
Planned giving is a unique charitable tool that allows you to support The Chaplaincy Institute’s programs and mission for many years to come, while also fulfilling your own financial goals and objectives.
You can help continue ChI’s education programs and work in the world into the future. Your legacy, or gift to the future, can take many forms:
Leave a specific dollar amount or asset to The Chaplaincy Institute.
Designate a percentage of your estate to be given through your will or living trust.
Give the remainder, or residue, of your estate—that which remains after bequests to loved ones have been made.
Make a contingent bequest naming The Chaplaincy Institute as the recipient in case another beneficiary does not survive you.
“I give and bequeath to The Chaplaincy Institute, a not-for-profit corporation, with principal offices presently located at 1400 Shattuck Avenue, Suite 14, Berkeley, CA 94709, the sum of $______, or _______% of my estate, to be used for the accomplishment of its general purpose (or for a specific purpose as indicated)”.
Name The Chaplaincy Institute as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), or other retirement plan.
Name The Chaplaincy Institute as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy.
An outright gift of cash
Stock and Securities
Real Estate (real estate is accepted on a case-by-case basis with minimum valuation considerations and a written appraisal)
Important tip: Don’t sell the stock first. Even though you may give us the proceeds as a gift, selling the stock first will incur capital gains tax and reduce the benefit you receive in making the gift.
