Leave a Legacy

When you give to First Liberty, you can build a Legacy for Religious Liberty in America

You may have worked for many years, or built a business, or inherited wealth. You’ve been a good steward of your blessings, and perhaps built a consequential financial legacy for your family. Most likely you have also worked to help your heirs live out their values. But that’s not where your story ends.

Sadly, in America today, whether your family can continue to practice their faith is becoming an open question, and one you may not want to leave to chance.

For many, the practice of leaving a religious legacy in concert with their financial plan has become a critical life experience, and a way to protect their heirs’ constitutional right to freely exercise their faith. Many also feel strongly about the Scriptural components of financial life emphasized in 1 Timothy 6:7 below:

“For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.”

By supporting First Liberty’s long-term efforts to protect religious freedom, you have an opportunity now to integrate your desire for religious liberty and your faith with your financial blessings, philanthropic intent, and estate structure.

With proper thought, such planning can simultaneously provide tax benefits, generate income, protect assets, and help secure your family’s ability to exercise their faith freely in America.

Building a Legacy of Religious Liberty

If you have a solid base of assets, then you probably have, or are considering, an estate plan—at least a simple will. For many families confiscatory estate taxes require proper planning for the optimal intergenerational transfer of these assets, and for those with substantial personal balance sheets, sophisticated trust and estate planning has become an essential part of life. If you want to learn more, click on the buttons below, and contact us at leavealegacy@firstliberty.org.

There are numerous ways to create a lasting impact through your estate during life or upon death:

Gifts of cash are an easy way to donate. But they may not be the most tax-efficient way to donate. Various types of trusts, retirement plans, and foundations are also often used to accommodate philanthropic goals and to structure tax-efficient estate plans.

There is an inevitability to life, and planning for future gifts to your loved ones and the charities that mean so much to you is an essential ingredient of a thoughtful estate plan.

Dear Coach Kennedy,

I would like to say thank you. Your dedication to your faith and your commitment to the positive education of our youth is truly admirable. I am deeply grateful for your military service and for taking a courageous stance in protecting religious liberty rights for teachers and administrators.

If our First Amendment protects a player’s right to kneel in protest, it certainly protects your right to kneel in prayer.

I was shocked to learn that Bremerton High School suspended you after denying your request to continue your wholesome practice of giving thanks after football games.

The Bremerton School District’s actions violate the law and send the wrong message to coaches, young people, our communities, and our nation — a message of hostility to religious freedom and intolerance toward personal religious expression.

Please know that you are not alone in this difficult time — I support you and First Liberty as you continue to fight for religious freedom! Our schools need more coaches like you, our country needs more citizens like you, and our world needs more people like you.
