Make an even greater impact on Bible translation—thanks to these special tax provisions, which expire on December 31, 2021:
Note that because JAARS is registered as a “supporting organization” to SIL International, qualifying gifts must be made out to SIL International with the memo, “For the preferred use of JAARS.” Learn more here, and as always, please check with your tax advisor for official guidance.
Send a check to JAARS, PO Box 248, Waxhaw, NC 28173.
Please include the following:
We’re always looking for small aircraft, vehicles, and boats. Sometimes, they can be outfitted and sent to our partners. Other times, we’ll sell the item and put that money toward the most pressing needs.
We can’t accept computers or clothes. But we can take plenty of other things, such as artwork, fine jewelry, collectibles, or real estate. Email us or call 888.773.1178 to get started. We’ll be glad to discuss your unique situation!
If you are 70½ or older, you can give to JAARS directly from your IRA account—without having to pay any income taxes on the transfer. QCDs, also known as IRA rollovers, must be received by December 31 to qualify for this calendar year. To get started, follow the simple steps below.
1. Contact your IRA administrator to initiate the transfer. Please note, the gift must come directly from your IRA account to qualify.
2. Checks should be made out to our parent organization, SIL International, with the memo: “For the preferred use of JAARS.”
3. Checks should be mailed to JAARS, PO Box 248, Waxhaw, NC 28173. Please include a letter stating that this is an IRA rollover, and note if you would like to designate your gift to a specific fund.
Pay less in taxes, and put more toward making Bible translation possible. It’s easy: If you’ve owned assets such as stocks, bonds, or mutual funds for more than a year, and they’ve increased in value, sign them over to JAARS. You’ll get the usual income deduction—if you qualify—and skip capital gains taxes. Learn more below, or you can email us or call 888.773.1178 to get started.
Leave a legacy of Bible translation. To name JAARS as a beneficiary in your will, estate plan, donor advised funds, IRA, 401k, etc., please use the following language on your documents:
“______ (% or $ amount) of ______ (asset or assets) to JAARS, Inc., PO Box 248, Waxhaw, NC 28173, Federal Tax ID #56-0818833.”
Does your company let you give through payroll deductions? Or a yearly campaign? See if JAARS is an option. It adds up, especially if your company matches gifts.
