Invest now and for the future . . .Complex Assets

Donating personal assets beyond those of appreciated securities can be overwhelming and complicated, but an increasing number of individuals and families are taking advantage of tools and methods that allow them to maximize eternal investment to charities, provide for their heirs and minimize tax exposure.  Before taking any action to liquidate assets consult with your advisors and organizations like Waterstone who are uniquely positioned to help Christ followers steward their resources for the glory of God.  Waterstone seeks to . . .

  • Honor God through the transformational power of giving,
  • Serve givers at the intersection of faith and finance, and
  • Build the Kingdom by transforming assets into living water.

Here are some examples of complex assets that one can invest for enduring kingdom purposes:

  • Real estate
  • Mineral rights
  • Commodities
  • Business ownership interests (like C Corp and S Corp shares)

The tool chest to transform these assets varies, but include:

  • Giving or Donor Advised Funds
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Charitable Pooled Trusts

Always consult beforehand with your advisor in:

  • Tax planning
  • Investment planning
  • Business planning
  • Income planning
  • Estate planning, and
  • Retirement planning
