BMS has partnered with Everence* to provide charitable services to help you explore a variety of planned giving options. Through gift planning, you can provide future support for BMS, while also giving you and your loved ones financial flexibility, potential tax benefits, and even income for life.

Charitable Remainder Trusts
A charitable remainder trust is an ideal way to turn your assets (like real estate and securities) into a charitable gift without losing much of your gain to taxes – and support BMS at the same time. Learn more.
IRAs and Tax-deferred Accounts
If you have a tax-deferred account, such as a traditional IRA (individual retirement account), you can donate it to charity upon your death and avoid paying substantial taxes that would be due. Learn more.
*Everence charitable services are administered by Mennonite Foundation (an affiliate of Everence) and Everence Trust Company.
**Gift annuity payments are dependent on the financial ability of the issuing entity to pay.
