Bequests represent the majority of all planned gifts to the Foundation are easily included in your will or living trust. Meet with your personal financial advisor or attorney to explore planned giving options. Certain kinds of planned gifts can provide donors with sizable income over a period of many years. Others can help donors (or their heirs) avoid or minimize capital gains, estate and other taxes. For example, charitable gift annuities and charitable trusts are planned gifts that provide income for life for the donor and/or another beneficiary with the eventual distribution to the Foundation. They also provide immediate income, estate and gift tax deductions.
