How to start a Planned Giving Program

There are several types of planned gifts that you can make for the foundation’s benefit. Bequests represent most of all planned gifts to the foundation and can be easily included in your will or living trust.

Meet with your financial advisor or attorney to explore planned giving options. Certain planned gifts can provide donors with sizable income over many years. Others can help donors (or their heirs) avoid or minimize capital gains, estate, or other taxes. For example, charitable remainder trusts (CRT) are planned gifts that provide income for life for the donor and/or another beneficiary with the eventual distribution to the Foundation. They also offer immediate income, estate, and gift tax deductions. If you are contemplating a tax-wise planned gift to the Foundation, we would be delighted to answer any questions or help in any way.
