Ways to Give

We understand that many of us like choices. Although we’ve provided an easy online process for giving, some of you may prefer other ways to give. Please be assured that whatever way you choose, we hope to make the process as easy as possible. If for some reason we haven’t provided what you need, please feel free to contact us directly so we may assist you in your giving experience. Thanks so much for supporting the work of Leadership Resources.

Corporate Matching Gifts
Thousands of employers offer matching gift programs allowing you to double or even tripply your gift to LRI. LRI qualifies for many of these programs, as it is a registered 501(c)3. For more information contact your place of employment to find out if it has a Corporate Matching Grants Program.

Securities, Real Estate, and Non-Cash Assets
Some choose to make larger gifts using appreciated assets. These gifts often are given in the form of appreciated securities, real estate, and retirement plans. Many of these gifts have attractive tax benefits. 

Bequests
Leadership Resources International may be named as a recipient of bequests in a donor’s will or trust. Such gifts can be made as a fixed dollar amount or as a percentage of the will and are a special way to leave a legacy for generations to come.

Donor Advised Funds
Donor advised funds (DAFs) are designed exclusively to invest, grow, and give assets to ministries for meaningful and lasting impact on your timetable. Leadership Resources International receives gifts from DAFs regularly and is equipped to assist partners wishing to establish their own fund.

Charitable Trusts
Charitable trusts are powerful, tax-wise gifts that enable you to support Leadership Resources International while securing lifetime payments for you and your loved ones. For information, please email us or call Brad Warren at 800-980-2226.

Gift Planning/Estate Planning
Planned gifts are made through a revocable trust or will, gifts that provide lifetime income to the donor, and more complex gifts of real estate and tax-deferred retirement assets. Planned gifts are popular because of the financial flexibility and tax benefits they provide. For information on how to incorporate Leadership Resources international into your estate or trust planning, please email us or call Brad Warren at 800-980-2226.
