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. Gifts must be received by December 31 to qualify for this calendar year. To take advantage of this strategy, follow our simple instructions 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.” A letter stating that this is an IRA rollover should accompany the check. The letter can also note if and how you would like to designate your gift more specifically.
3. Checks and associated letters should be mailed to JAARS, PO Box 248, Waxhaw, NC 28173.
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. Email us or call 888.773.1178 to get started.
