Will and Living Trust
Interested in helping Chestnut Ridge Church continue to help people in a growing relationship with God and others for years to come? A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can change lives for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest. A charitable bequest is one or two sentences in your will or living trust that leave to CRC a specific item, amount of money, a gift contingent upon a certain event, or a percentage of your estate. In addition, giving to the church in your bequest also enables you to receive federal estate tax charitable deductions.
By including a bequest to Chestnut Ridge Church in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that God’s invitation to have an eternal relationship with Him will continue to be offered in our local community and beyond.
Where do my donations go?
