In some countries, one dollar is a lot of cash! One dollar can feed a hungry child.

Greetings and thank you for being a friend to the children and families we support. As you at this last-minute consider the charitable gifts you will make to close out the year, I ask you to please remember Star of Hope and our work on behalf of children across the world.

Now 2021 is quickly coming to an end and 2022 will be here before we know it. We get caught up in end-of-year activities and we forget about making year-end gifts.
These gifts, large or small, are important to us. They allow our work to blossom and the return on investment is seen in the children's eyes.

Looking over your charitable giving plans, between now and Dec. 31, can help assure maximum benefits for you and your family as well as Star of Hope. Giving sometimes helps you meet personal goals as well as spiritual goals.

There are many ways you can make a gift before the end of the year that will provide you with valuable benefits and help further the work.
These benefits include tax savings for some on this year's return and bypass of capital gains tax on the sale of your property.
Here are some options for year-end giving:

A. Make a deductible gift of cash

While all gifts mailed or hand-delivered by Dec. 31 qualify for the charitable deduction, gifts of cash are the most common and the easiest way to give. If you itemize your tax deductions, gifts of cash are deductible up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income (AGI).

B. Make a deductible gift of securities

Making gifts of stocks, bonds, and/or mutual funds directly to Star of Hope can bring extra tax savings. If you have held such assets longer than one year, the gift can be deducted at full fair market value, not just the original cost. Giving this way enables you to bypass capital gains tax. Gifts of securities are deductible up to 30 percent of AGI. Please ask your expert.

C. Make a deductible gift of real estate and avoid taxes

If you own appreciated real estate that you no longer need, consider gifting this property to Star of Hope for the benefit of your personal cause whether it is; education, health, spiritual leadership, or other. Star of Hope will sell your property tax-free, and you will receive a charitable tax deduction for the fair market value of the property and avoid paying capital gains tax.

D. Give crops or leases

Are you a farmer or perhaps in the oil patch? You can give away those items, (oil or crops) to help children perpetually and you can call the shots!.

 

Now is also a good time to review your estate plan, as well as ask, will you leave a legacy?

Many want to make an impact on the world, to leave it in a better state after we are gone. A bequest is one of the easiest ways to have a lasting impact on the people and organizations that mean the most to you. You can create a bequest of any dollar amount, gift specific property, or designate a percentage of your estate in your will or trust.
Ten percent can make a big impact. Your generosity will make a difference for years to come.

These are but a few examples of what we plan for the New Year;

• Continue with our core: education, feeding, healthcare, and community development

• Use our core to effectively spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ 

• Get more youth bibles in children's hands

• Water wells in Haiti and Argentina

• New buildings at schools 

• Expand Awana International partnerships to new countries

• Enhanced nutrition for our kids

• Training and services to families caring for children with disabilities

• Teacher training

• Economic opportunities for people in Haiti and Argentina

• Alpha classes all over the world

• Lunch program always is needed and hard to fund

• Christian classes for young men and women in the Philippines to learn Biblical respect for the sexes 

• Doing the Great Commission.

 Please pray for our children and our mission and, if needed, ask your accountant if a donation can benefit your situation.

Together this year, we experienced the joy and accomplishment of changing children’s lives and spreading the Gospel.

All in spite of Covid or other reasons, we never gave up!

We also kept feeding programs open, feeding kids and families. 

We were able to restart closed programs. Some helped the kids with emotional and psychological pressure due to the pandemic.

Most of our schools found a way to keep the educational process going.

Our donors have kept our budget above the water line, thank you so much as we know this was never to be taken for granted. You are not taken for granted and we bless you!

More wells were not drilled a the rigs did not move, many have paid for new wells and we are eager to start!

This year our year-end giving will be used primarily to shore up our feeding budget where it is most needed.

Your year-end gift is not a one-time deal, it is a hand up, and together with others like you, your gift has the potential to make thousands of boys and girls happy and feel the love. 

Giving them joy by showing them love can create a positive change in the children and ultimately a whole community. It will, I bet, make you feel warm and fuzzy inside too.
