Gift and Estate Design Services
There are a number of tax-wise gift- and estate-planning tools and strategies that you can use to preserve assets, provide for family, and remember those charities and ministries that are important to you. But, how does one know which options would best fit his or her own unique situation? The answer, to obtain wise counsel from trusted charitable professionals; advisors who not only know the techniques, but also have the same spiritual values you do—a heart to see the lost reached, believers grow, and churches planted worldwide.

You might ask, why would I need another person at the table, I already have a team of advisors? The answer, your team is not complete without a charitable gift-planning professional who can bring both the tax-wise and spiritual legacy perspective into the discussion. A majority of the legal and financial counsel today lacks the biblical stewardship and the charitable gift dimensions that a ministry gift planner provides.
You might also ask, what would that advisor do? Answer, he would begin with an audit, a comprehensive review of your plans, people, property and planners. You can sit down and talk with a trusted planning specialist who can help you put your dreams, goals and desires on paper. He’ll provide you a blueprint with various options, people (attorney CPA, CFP, etc.) to take what you have and what you want to do, and put them into action. He also can give you an independent, second opinion on plans you may also already have.
A number of people have already taken advantage of the gift and estate design review offered by from The Cru Foundation also known as The Great Commission Foundation of Campus Crusade for Christ, Inc., and have benefited from the service. Here’s what some of them have said:
“We have greatly benefited from the exceptional service that your gift specialist has given us so that we could complete our estate plan. We have wanted to do this since we married 14 years ago. The personalized estate design that your specialist put together with my wife and me made it so easy to understand while preparing us to meet with our attorney. The estate design helped us to understand the decisions that we needed to make and the legal tools used to accomplish our desires. It prepared us by enabling us to make most of our needed decisions before we even met our attorney.
“His instructions were easy to follow making this very important document simple to understand and the process of completing it an enjoyable experience. I have referred others to your gift specialist because of how important I believe it is for Christians to manage their resources in order to provide for their loved ones and to provide funding for ministry. I highly recommend his services to anyone who wants to be a faithful steward of the possessions that God has given them.”

“Our experience with The Cru Foundation has been a blessing. Your gift planning specialists are uniquely gifted to understand and explain estate planning strategies from a scriptural perspective. It is evident that they and other associates in Jesus Film Project are serving at God’s calling and seek to honor Him through their vocation.
“The Cru Foundation estate planning counsel is thorough, professional and insightful. Alternatives are explained clearly and recommendations are suggested rather than insisted upon. Strategies stay within the letter and spirit of the law, always seeking to honor the Lord while maintaining a good testimony before others. While certain strategies are core, the resulting plan is individually crafted. It is not a ‘cookie-cutter’ approach.
“One of the most appealing aspects of the service is the lack of appeal to designate funds to Th Cru Foundation itself. That alternative is described but any designation is strictly independent. It is clear that you are seeking to help believers in their stewardship rather than seeking a benefit for GCF. They are clearly walking by faith and we appreciate their witness in that regard.
“We would be very comfortable recommending GCF to others considering estate planning issues. We trust they would be equally blessed and satisfied with their experience.”
