Tens of thousands of baptized believers in churches on every continent now worship the one true God. And this is just the beginning.
Join our Legacy Circle by investing gifts, assets, or a portion of your estate with the SIBI Foundation, the permanent endowment of the Sunset International Bible Institute. The Foundation is a legally-recognized 501(c)3 organization that receives and manages permanent assets, and strives to maximize investment returns with appropriate risk, all for the sole purpose of taking the gospel to all the world. All gifts to the Foundation are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by tax laws.
A godly Board of Directors oversees the fiscal governance of the SIBI Foundation in keeping with their legal and fiduciary responsibilities, as well as the Christian ethics to which they are bound. You can make a kingdom difference beyond your lifetime!
Consider these Estate Planning Options:
MAKE AN HONOR OR MEMORIAL GIFT
Celebrate the life of a friend or loved one by making a donation in their honor or memory. Your gift will be used to train preachers and ministers for decades to come.
INCLUDE THE SIBI FOUNDATION IN YOUR WILL
Everyone should have a will, no matter the scope of one’s assets. If you do not create one, your State has one already made for you, but it likely will not honor your priorities and wishes. The SIBI Foundation can help guide you to professionals who can help you create a will.
INCLUDE THE SIBI FOUNDATION IN A TRUST
Irrevocable Charitable Trusts offer some significant advantages. Investigate the option that best fits your estate planning needs. Substantial income tax and estate tax savings can often be achieved through a properly structured trust. In some cases, you can donate a significant amount to SIBI without lowering the amount that you wish your heirs to receive.
GIVE LIFE INSURANCE
Making a donation to the SIBI Foundation through a life insurance policy might provide a tax savings for you now, and can provide significant financial benefit to the school. Making the SIBI Foundation a beneficiary of a life insurance policy may also reduce your estate, effectively reducing or eliminating estate taxes.
GIVE AND RECEIVE WITH CHARITABLE ANNUITIES
A charitable gift annuity is one way to secure a fixed income for life while enjoying a significant income tax benefit and a possible reduction in estate taxes.
DONATE REAL ESTATE OR SECURITIES
There are often significant tax savings in donating appreciated property or securities to the SIBI Foundation. Donating property during your lifetime or directing property to Sunset in your estate plan has the effect of reducing the size of the estate and may reduce or eliminate capital gains and other income taxes as well as estate taxes.
