With the help of planned giving vendor PG Calc, WELS Foundation has updated our website with online tools to help users personalize the benefits of different giving options:
- The Explore Gift Options tool walks the user through several questions to help them find the best gift for their personal situation.
- The user can Run a Personalized Gift Illustration for a tailored diagram of any gift.
- As a person navigates the WELS Foundation site and reads about certain gifts (for example, the charitable gift annuity) they can click to view a specific illustration for that type of gift and personalize the illustration to their situation.
As always, if somebody is interested in learning more or would like assistance with making a gift, WELS provides Christian giving counselors at no cost or obligation to help WELS members carry out their charitable goals.
WELS Foundation executive director Jim Holm hopes prospective donors find the tools useful. He says, “We want to make it as easy as possible for those supporting WELS ministry—their church, synod, or another WELS organization—to explore the options available.”
