legacy gifts

What’s Your Legacy?

Our legacy is built on the choices we make each and every day. How we invest our time, talent and financial resources say a lot about who we are and what our priorities are. Our commitments to God, our families, and the community create ripples of influence throughout our lives and eternity.  

In this world of uncertainty, planning ahead is an important way to make your legacy real. We are honored by those who have made PACS a part of their legacy planning. PACS ministry is traced back to the 1930’s and your legacy gifts ensure that our service to the community will continue for years to come. These donations contribute to our long-term financial stability and help fund our endowment, the expansion of programs that help the working poor, or capital improvements that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.

Legacy gifts through planned giving help you make a charitable impact on the lives of those in need and helps PACS serve the community for years to come. Planned giving is part of your legacy and, as a side benefit may help you with your overall financial, tax, and estate planning goals. Legacy gifts may include making bequests to PACS; naming PACS as a beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy, IRA, 401(k), and/or other pension or retirement plans; charitable trusts or gift annuities; or donating appreciated assets to PACS. We encourage you to discuss these options with your tax, financial planning, or estate planning advisor.
