Remember Ligonier Ministries in Your Will or Trust
Wise stewardship requires that we adequately prepare for the future. We at Ligonier are diligently planning for the continuation of our ministry – ensuring that sound biblical teaching will prevail in the churches and culture of the 21st century. Through a bequest in your will or trust, your partnership can help us establish this vital mission for future generations. Such thoughtful planning will help awaken the next generation to the holiness of God and serve as a bold Christian witness to those who learn of your intention to support our work through your estate plans.
Executing a will is not difficult or expensive and can be deeply rewarding. If you fail to prepare or update your will, state law determines how your assets will be divided using a formula that may not represent your wishes. Only through careful estate planning can you guarantee that your property will pass to the people and organizations that are meaningful to you.
As you work with your professional advisor, it will be helpful to note:
- Ligonier Ministries operates as a non-profit organization under the laws of the State of Florida using tax identification number 25-1298611. We are qualified for tax exemption under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. That means that your legacy gift to us removes assets from the taxable portion of your estate.
- Your bequest can be a stated dollar amount, a percentage, a specific asset, or the remainder of your estate after other distributions have been made.
- Sample bequest language to be used in your will or trust:
I give the sum of _________% of my estate to Ligonier Ministries,
Attn: Ministry Advancement Dept. 421 Ligonier Court, Sanford, FL
32771, to be used to proclaim the holiness of God in all its fullness
to as many people as possible.
If you have remembered Ligonier in your estate plans, please let us know. We want to acknowledge your desire to establish a spiritual legacy that will continue to advance the Kingdom of God. If you have not considered this option, why not join with other friends who have made “the ultimate gift?” Through a bequest you will maintain your support of our work, perhaps at greater levels than possible presently. We are deeply grateful for such forethought and the impact of such faithfulness to our mission.
