Planned Giving

You are here

Planned giving is the thoughtful process of realizing your charitable objectives while optimizing tax and other financial benefits.

A planned gift can be provided now for immediate use, or can be deferred – included in a will for use at a future time.

A Planned gift

  • Is a tangible expression of your values
  • Considers your personal and family needs
  • Can be made with cash or other assets
  • Allows you to carefully plan the impact of your gift now and into the future
  • Is tailored to your financial situation and maximizes your tax, financial and estate planning benefits.
