​Planned Giving

Giving a planned gift is one of the best ways to make the biggest impact you want to make. Here are four ways you can give a planned gift to DSF:


Beneficiary Designations - This is one of the most simple, straightforward ways to create a planned gift. You list "Disciples Seminary Foundation" in your life insurance plans or retirement plans.

Wills / Bequests - This is another common way individuals and families give a planned gift. You list "Disciples Seminary Foundation in your will or bequest.

Charitable Remainder Funds -  This increases your income, save taxes and benefit charities by letting you convert a highly appreciated asset like stock or real estate into lifetime income.

IRA Rollover - The process of moving your retirement savings from your retirement plan at work (401(k), profit-sharing plan, etc.) into an Individual Retirement Account(IRA). Rolling over to an IRA allows you to keep your savings tax-deferred and typically gives you a broader choice of investments.

In return, it is our pleasure to work with your financial planning professionals – CPA’s, financial planners and estate attorneys - to ensure that, together, we guide your intent so that your wishes will be fulfilled. We appreciate the trust you have placed in us and wholeheartedly commit to serving our shared vision for empowering future leaders of the church.
