Will You Help Plant An Oak Tree?

Education Partnership:  Become an Education Partner by giving full tuition ($250 monthly) or whatever you can.  We will put your donation with others', and, together, there will be enough to educate a child.  Some invest multiples of this amount to extend coverage to more children.

Living Legacy Program:  After being an Education Partner for a short time, many realize the value their sponsorship brings to their lives and the value they bring to the life of a child in poverty.  Some desire to make sponsorship a lifelong commitment, sponsoring child after child, and leaving a lasting legacy. 

Because of this, we created the Living Legacy program. It blesses you, and a child in need.  Living Legacy funds are wisely invested in a separate fund.  The principal and all investment earnings are restricted for the sponsorship of children for as long as Love At Work Ministries is in existence.  Some types of gifts to consider:

  • Cash gifts
  • A will bequest
  • Appreciated investments
  • Life Insurance
  • Tribute gifts 
  • Commemoration of a special event

A Living Legacy offers tax benefits to you under both state and federal laws. Depending on the type of asset given, and the type of gift arrangement selected, it is possible to enjoy current savings on income taxes and gift/estate taxes.  Because a Living Legacy creates an ongoing source of income, LAWICS can count on annual distributions for continuing student scholarships.

To determine the amount of a gift needed to maintain a scholarship in perpetuity, multiply an annual gift amount by 15.  For example, if you desire to establish a $1,000 annual scholarship, perpetuate it by giving $15,000.  Living Legacy Gifts can be added to your original gift at any time in the future to increase the annual distribution to student scholarships.  

Housing:  Your gift will help us demolish nuisance properties, build new homes, make infrastructure improvements.

Meet Basic Needs:  Your gift will enable us to meet basic needs for food, water, sanitation and medical care.  

Outreach / Camps:  Your gift will help Love At Work Ministries continue expanding its outreach programs – camps, retreats, youth meetings, community service projects – to create opportunities for out-of-school and underserved children and their families in the “risky areas” of Alajuelita. 

General Donation:  Your gift will enable us to respond quickly in areas of education, housing, health and nutrition, economic opportunity, spiritual and social development to help the most vulnerable children and families.
