Charitable Giving & Tax Efficiency

Financial Consultant Nathan Mahnke shares how he helped his client realize her giving dreams and benefit from a significant annual tax deduction by giving a charitable life insurance policy to InFaith Community Foundation.



Inspired by her opportunity to lead a faith community, Anna plans to become a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

Passionate about nature, Cameron plans to become a forest ranger or game warden to inspire young people to protect our environment.

As a future women’s health nurse practitioner, Olivia hopes to improve health care for the women in her community.

The following Q2 market update provides context for the investment performance of your charitable assets at InFaith Community Foundation.

Like many financial professionals, Lauren Hutto likes to present her clients with choices when making recommendations. More often now, she includes charitable solutions in the options she offers. She recently took that approach with a retired couple she knows well from volunteering with them at her church’s bread ministry. They sold their home before moving into an assisted living facility and wanted to be smart with the $200,000 from the sale.

InFaith donor Barbara Wheeler has shifted her giving in light of COVID-19 by providing support to Embry-Riddle’s Aeronautical University Eagles Care Student Emergency Fund, which helps students offset unexpected expenses. 

For some of Financial Consultant Sabrina Fay’s charitable clients, the ‘now normal’ has added a sense of urgency to their giving. The CARES Act provides an opportunity for Sabrina to assist those clients who want to make an even greater impact now.

These past weeks, we were witnesses to the tragic death of George Floyd. We also saw the anger, frustration and call of change Mr. Floyd’s death evoked. As we grapple with the full impact of these events, we at InFaith still believe that in all of us is light, hope and love. We have therefore joined with Thrivent to create an integrated community response, investing $3 million in community action, in pursuit of long-term systemic change.

When meeting with her clients, financial professional Jennifer Cords emphasizes the effectiveness of a Donor Advised Fund. By helping her clients put their charitable plans in place, they're able to support the charities closest to their hearts, even in a time of uncertainty.

We all want a place of possibilities, where we can help create the world we we seek. A place where we can strengthen the people, causes and organizations closest to our hearts.
