Other Ways to Give
Checks have no fees attached and remain the most cost-effective way to partner with us! Make your checks payable to “Wellspring Life Ministry” and send to:
Wellspring Life Ministry
934 West Street
Annapolis, MD, 21401
With a charitable gift of appreciated securities, the donation you make and the deduction you receive is greater than it would be if you sell it and donate the cash proceeds instead. This is because your direct donation of securities will likely keep you from paying Capital gains, and you might be able to take an income tax deduction.
Check with your CPA, financial planner, or attorney for details.
Give from your cell phone! Text “Give” to 410-457-3400 and follow the prompts.
Honor the important people in your Life by giving a Gift of LIFE to the Wellspring Life Ministry. We will email or mail a personalized card to your loved one, letting them know about the gift that was made in their honor or memory. Learn More.
For those 70½ years and older, you can now make tax-free charitable gifts from Individual Retirement Account (IRA) funds. When reaching this age, there is a requirement to make a Minimum Required Distribution, which is also tax-deductible when given to a 501©3 charitable organization such as the Wellspring Life Ministry. Those with traditional or Roth IRAs can make a tax-free gift directly to a qualified charity. You can use all or part of your Required Minimum Distribution but must do so by Dec 31st to qualify for the current year.
A Revocable Living Trust, other types of Trusts, as well as your Last Will and Testament can become the cornerstone of your estate plan. You can name the Wellspring Life Ministry in your will, trust, or as a beneficiary in your life insurance or IRAs. A bequest can be made for a specific amount, for a percentage of your estate, or for all or a portion of what is left after distribution to your family.
To make a gift to the Wellspring Life Ministry from your estate, please consult with your CPA, financial planner, or attorney for details.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 nearly doubled the standard deduction; however, to get the most tax benefit for your charitable deduction, consider pre-funding (or “stacking”) two or more years of contributions into one year. This may take you over the standard deduction for the year and increase your tax savings.
Please consult your CPA, financial planner, or attorney with questions.
We have established an Agency Endowed Fund, The Pregnancy Clinic Endowment, through the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County (CFAAC). This Endowment is an investment pool of money that provides our partners an opportunity for giving with an eye to the future and a sense of security, knowing that their gifts will be invested for the long-term benefit of our Wellspring Life Ministry.
Because the Endowment Fund is managed by the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County, all gifts to the Endowment must be made on their website.
