Planned giving refers to a deferred gift that a person decides to give at some future date, as outlined in a legal contract. These gifts can be made in many forms, such as cash donations, annuities, trust funds, real estate, business interests or proceeds of a life insurance policy. Funds from planned gifts can be designated for current funding needs or a specific program or service and provide donors with great charitable tax benefits.
When a loved one dies, the family may request that a memorial gift be given to a designated charity, often in lieu of flowers. Memorial gifts offer a great opportunity to support a cause important to the loved one and remember someone in a way that has more lasting benefits.
A legacy bequest is a gift of money or personal property given to our organization under the terms of a will.
