Planned Giving: Creating A Lasting Legacy
A planned gift is a wonderful way to create a lasting legacy for those charitable institutions that matter most to you. It is important to carefully consider a number of key factors when determining if making a planned gift is right for you, such as its purpose, what assets are most appropriate to use in funding the gift, the gift’s timing, its effect on income tax and estate tax planning, and its effect on your family members and friends. When considering your charitable goals and objectives, we strongly encourage you to seek the counsel of your legal, tax or financial advisor before finalizing any gift intention.
