Ways To Support Benevolent Care

While there are many ways to support Benevolent Care, you may prefer one method over others. Talk to your financial advisor for the best advice on how you can give and support our mission in a wise fiscal manner.

Some examples of popular ways to give a gift include:

  • Planned Giving (Charitable Gift Annuities, trusts, bequests, IRAs, bonds, stock, insurance)
    • Increased Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) rates as of January 1, 2023 (this is yet another increase from the July 1, 2022 rate change).  Rates increased 0.3 – 0.5% based on annuitant age(s)
    • Congress recently passed the Secure Act 2.0. You can make a once-in-a-lifetime tax-free distribution from your IRA for a CGA providing lifetime income. Contact Kim Peters, Director of Development for more information at 717-390-4105.
  • Memorial and Honor Gifts
  • Cash, Checks (made payable to Mennonite Home Communities), Credit Card 
  • Special events – Golf Outing, Annual Appeal
  • Giving Circles – 1903 Legacy Society, Hearts and Hands Women’s Connection

NOTE: Some companies have matching gifts programs that can make your giving go even further. Please contact your Human Resources Department to see if your gift or volunteer hours can be matched. Call Kim Peters, Director of Development, at 717-390-4105 for more details.
