Legacy Gifts

Planned giving is an increasingly popular means of providing significant support for charitable institutions while simultaneously providing the donor with significant tax benefits. The benefits to the donor can include an immediate charitable income tax deduction, even though the charity may not receive the gift until a future date; deferral or avoidance of capital gains taxes on gifts of appreciated securities; retained increased income to the donor and/or their family; possible assistance in asset diversification, and most importantly, critical support for an organization which you know shares your values.
