“We believe in the programs and services offered by the Volunteer Ministry Center to prevent and end homelessness which is why we have included VMC in our Estate Planning. A gift through our Will ensures sustainability and guarantees that support will continue after we are gone.” ~Carole and Joe Ayres
Billy Courier was a resident of Minvilla Manor since it opened in November 2010. A few years ago, Billy decided he needed a Will. He said he didn’t have much, but what he did have he wanted to go to VMC. Over the years, VMC provided a home and stability for Billy. To include VMC in his Will was the best way Billy knew to give back to his “VMC family.”
There are many reasons for homelessness- mental illness, addiction, lack of education, poor choices, bad luck. But having a safe place to live is crucial to overcoming these circumstances- and helping people to achieve safe housing is what VMC does so well. Contributing to an endowment is important to me, because it means VMC will be making an important difference in our community for many years to come.”

Make a quick and easy gift to VMC. Cash, stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds can all be donated. Donor may take an income tax deduction and avoid capital gains tax.
One of the easiest ways to give involves simply naming VMC as a beneficiary of your will or trust. A bequest may be for a particular amount or percentage of your estate. Estate tax savings may be significant. Making a will or changing your will is a relatively easy process beginning with a call to your attorney.
Checking & Savings Accounts, IRA’s
Often overlooked as a planned gift, these accounts are assets for which a donor can designate VMC as a beneficiary.
IRA Charitable Rollover
Individuals age 70½ or older can make tax-free gifts totaling up to $100,000 from a traditional IRA account directly to qualified charities like VMC. While you cannot claim a charitable deduction for IRA gifts, the distribution counts towards your minimum required distribution and does NOT trigger income tax for you.
Make a large gift to VMC with little cost. Donate a policy with VMC as owner and beneficiary. Donor can also name VMC as a full or partial beneficiary. Donor may receive an income tax deduction and possible future deductions.
