Structured as a “pass-through” or “conduit” foundation, AG Foundation is set up so that people can give charitably through it in order to achieve their giving goals.
Giving is simplified. AG Foundation receives your gift to process and becomes the facilitator of the gift, passing it to the ministry of your choice as the ultimate beneficiary. Depending on the gift option used, you receive potential tax benefits.

Planned Giving is a process that integrates the personal, financial, and estate planning goals of donors with their desire to create current or future financial gifts for charitable purposes. Some planned gift options, like bequests, are very straightforward and are made by a designation in a Will or Trust. Others require additional planning and are designed to create present or future income stream for the donor or other beneficiaries, tax savings for the donor, and a legacy gift for ministries or charities.
Assemblies of God Foundation offers planned giving tools such as Wills, Revocable Trusts, Charitable Remainder Trust, Charitable Gift Annuities, Endowments, Donor Advised Funds, and more.
The major difference is in the calculation of the payments to be paid to the income beneficiary(ies) of the trust. Payment calculation of a Charitable Remainder Trust is dependent on the valuation of the assets of the trust, and an annuity trust payment is based on a single valuation while a unitrust payment is based on recurring valuations. Annuity trust assets are valued at the time the assets are placed in the trust. The trust assets are never revalued. Annual payments remain the same, whether the assets appreciate (increase in value) or depreciate (lose value). The assets in the unitrust are revalued annually. If the trust assets appreciate, the payments to the income beneficiary(ies) will increase. If the trust assets depreciate, the payments will decrease based on recurring valuations.
