Planned giving is sometimes referred to as legacy giving. It is a way to support non-profits that enable individuals to make larger gifts than they could make from ordinary income. A planned gift is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning. Whether a donor uses cash, appreciated securities/stock, real estate, artwork, partnership interests, personal property, life insurance, a retirement plan, etc., the benefits of funding a planned gift ensures good stewardship of your assets beyond your lifetime. Leaving a legacy allows you to remain in control of the funds or property during your lifetime in addition to potentially reducing estate taxes after death.

For more information seek the advice of your financial or legal advisor and research planned giving online.

THANK YOU for generously considering the wellbeing of our little corner of the world beyond your lifetime.
