Planned giving is a way to both preserve your family’s financial future and leave a charitable legacy for years to come.
There are a variety of planned giving options available, and the type of planned gift you choose depends on your current and future financial needs as well as the assets you would like to donate. A financial planner can help you develop a giving planned designed to benefit the people and organizations that matter most to you. This kind of generosity can be implemented while you’re alive or after your death.
Planned giving can include gifts of:
-Real Estate -Stocks -Life Insurance
-Property -Investments -Beneficiary Proceeds
-Cash -Mutual funds -Annuity Proceeds
Benefits of planned giving include:
-Giving more than your current income allows
-Giving an asset other than cash
-Receiving tax benefits
-Receiving income for a set number of years or for life.
