Gifts to BTS of tangible personal property such as equipment, artwork, jewelry, and vehicles are tax deductible to the extent of their full value.

Charitable Gift Annuities (CGA):
Gift annuities can help meet the needs of those who wish to give but want to make certain they have first provided for their own financial needs and those of their loved ones. A gift annuity offers you a way to further the mission of the seminary while benefiting from the following: 1. Lifetime payments that may be partially tax free, 2. Income, gift, and estate tax savings, and 3. Favorable treatment of capital gains.
This includes a variety of charitable trust options including charitable lead and charitable remained trusts. This type of planned gift can be an important part of an individual’s or couple’s charitable and estate tax planning. Contact Thom Skinner at email@example.com or 215.368.5000 for more information.
The IRA Charitable Rollover:
This provision allows individuals who have reached age 70 ½ to donate up to $100,000 to charitable organizations directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA), without treating the distribution as taxable income.
With an effective estate plan, you can provide future economic security for yourself, your family, and Biblical Seminary by making provisions for the present and future management of the assets you have accumulated. Gift options include Charitable Lead Trusts, Charitable Remainder Trusts, life insurance, bequests, and real property.
