Using a Beneficiary Designation to Make a Gift to Charity
Ralph grew up and lived his entire life in West Bend, Wisconsin. He spent his working career at the West Bend Company. In the last few years of his life, he watched Time of Grace every Sunday. Ralph had set up an annuity through his Thrivent Financial Services representative and declared Time of Grace a partial beneficiary of his annuity, to be paid upon his death. When Ralph died in 2015, the share was transferred to Time of Grace. Time of Grace used part of this gift to set up an Outreach Fund to support long-term ministry opportunities.
