“I am updating my estate planning, including making provision in my will for Love INC of Metro Tampa. I invite you to join our Love INC of Metro Tampa Legacy Society.”
– James G. Souza III, P.A. Tampa Attorney at Law / Love INC volunteer and vision carrier
Jim’s April 2020 visioning for Love INC’s future was the catalyst to form Love INC’s Legacy Society, joining Michael and me as founding members to enhance building His kingdom.
“When we move beyond transactions and teach people to live generously, this revolutionizes the entire experience. Living generously is transformational. They discover a better way of life, connected to God’s heart and His causes; they experience joy.”

How It Works
Life Insurance – You can purchase a new life insurance policy and name Love INC of Metro Tampa Inc. as owner and beneficiary. This makes the annual premiums associated with that policy tax deductible. The same tax benefits are achieved by transferring ownership of your existing life insurance policy to Love INC.
Bequests – To make a charitable bequest, you need a current will or revocable living trust. Your gift can simply be a percentage of your estate or you can make a specific bequest by giving a certain amount of cash, securities or property. After your lifetime, Love INC receives your gift. Because Love INC is a tax exempt organization, 100% of your donation goes towards fulfilling the mission.
Sample charitable bequest language for Love INC is:
“I give ________ (residue, percentage, or specific amount) to Love INC of Metro Tampa Inc., having its principal offices at 1001 N. Florida Ave. Tampa, FL 33602, for its general purposes to mobilize churches to transform lives and communities In the Name of Christ.
Retirement Plans – If you are 72 years (2020 change) or older, the IRS requires you to start making minimum distributions (RMD) from your IRA. You can donate up to $100,000 annually, from funds drawn on your IRA to a qualified 501(c)(3) charity (QCD) without that money being added to your adjusted gross income at tax time. However, the IRS requires that the funds be drawn from your IRA custodian and paid directly to the charity you select, in our case Love INC of Metro Tampa. You cannot receive your RMD and then write a check to Love INC for it to be considered as a Qualified Charitable Distribution.
Love INC of Metro Tampa’s tax ID number is 81-2456286.
