Why We Give
The heart of Grace Life has always been to show the hope found in Jesus. That is why there is no greater generosity than investing in what Jesus built – the local church. With God’s favor and faithful support, we have seen countless baptized, marriages healed, families restored, leaders equipped and the next generation rise up and take stand for their faith.
How We Give
We Automate the Important
We encourage you to set up an automated giving schedule to have your “first fruits” go to the Lord every time. Our online giving portal lets you easily set up a recurring gift via your debit card, credit card, or checking account.
Give via Check
Checks can be made payable to “Grace Life Church” and placed in the offering plate, or mailed to 3751 Cottonwood Lakes Blvd., Thornton CO 80241.
Gift of Stocks & Mutual Funds
Giving appreciated assets – such as stock – often allows you to maximize a gift. Typically, you can receive a tax deduction for the value of the stock on the day it was given, regardless of the cash basis (original purchase price) of the stock. Capital gains taxes are avoided.
Gifts of Real Estate
Under certain circumstances, Grace Life accepts gifts of Real Estate. Donating appreciated Real Estate can afford you significant tax advantages while allowing a substantial gift to the Church that avoids capital gains taxes.
Setting up a well-designed estate plan may protect your loved ones from expensive probate taxes, allowing you to use the savings to leave a legacy gift for the Church. Ask your accountant or financial planner how to set this up.
Make a tax free IRA gift
If you are 70 1⁄2 or older, you may now instruct your IRA custodian to transfer any amount up to $10,000 directly to Grace Life Church. This distribution would not be included in your taxable income (but could fulfill any required minimum distribution requirements) and would not produce an income tax deduction.
