Ways to Give

Choosing How to Give

While many of the gifts made to PCSC are in the form of cash donations, there are numerous other ways to support our mission. Typically, donors choose among these options based on their need for current income, their estate planning objectives, and their desire to obtain the maximum tax benefits.

Appreciated stock gives the donor a tax deduction for the full amount of the gift, and allows the donor to avoid capital gains taxes. It’s a “win” for the donor and a “win” for PCSC.

A charitable gift annuity that names PCSC as the residual beneficiary is ideal for donors who want to make an irrevocable future gift while continuing to draw income on which to live.

Naming PCSC as a beneficiary in one’s will or similar document is a way to plan for a future gift to support our mission without reducing one’s assets while still alive.

There are many other ways to support PCSC, including:

  • Life insurance
  • IRA’s
  • Real estate

If you would like to know more about these and other ways to establish your own legacy of blessing our residents and their families, please contact Jenn Stanley, Director of Foundation Services and Church Relations, at 803-772-5885. You can also email her at JennStanley@PresComm.org
