Leaving a Legacy for Tomorrow's Children and Families in Need
Legacy Planning or planned giving, as it is often called refers to charitable gifts that require some planning before they are made. Some examples include:
bequest or gift through your will
gifts through your retirement assets
gifts of insurance
Whether you choose to donate cash or other assets, planned giving can provide valuable tax benefits, as well.
