Leaving a Legacy through Planned Giving


Planned giving is making a charitable donation as part of your overall financial and estate planning. Plans can include donations that will be made during your lifetime or after your passing. Planned giving can include many types of assets. Often cash, stocks, bonds, and property can be given in a way that increases your impact by providing significant tax savings.

Cash makes up only 7% of total wealth — however 85 % of charitable gifts people make are in cash. With over 93% of wealth held in assets other than cash the giving of stocks, real estate, artwork and more non-cash assets hold immense potential value for charitable impact.

You can make a difference

You can make a difference in God’s Kingdom by giving both while you are alive on this earth and upon your promotion to heaven. DOVE International has arranged ways to make planned giving donations that will contribute to the work DOVE is doing to sow into nations around the world. Planned giving with DOVE will contribute to discipling the next generation, carrying the gospel to the nations, church planting, missions, and much more.

Jesus taught that we could become rich in spirit by generous giving. In Luke chapter twelve, He explained, “A man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” He concluded His teaching on finances by saying, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
