Gift Planning

Gift planning, also referred to as planned giving or legacy giving, describes an array of methods that can be used to commit to making a gift that will be paid to a non-profit organization at a future date, in some cases from the donor's estate upon their passing. Often these options allow a person or couple to make a more significant gift than they would be able to with their ordinary income. These giving vehicles can align with estate and tax planning guidance, often providing the donor or donors a means to benefit both their heirs and the not-for-profit organization, while reducing the impact on the donor's estate, the sale of a business, or other events with significant tax consequences.
