Make a Bequest:

A planned gift is best made with the counsel of one’s financial advisors, such as your attorney, accountant, banker, financial planner, or insurance professional. A planned gift results from the donor’s careful consideration of several factors, including:

  • the purpose of the gift,
  • the assets to be used to fund the gift,
  • the gift’s timing,
  • its effect on income tax and estate tax planning, and
  • its impact on the donor’s family members and friends.

A bequest in your will or trust is a caring way to provide for the future of a charitable organization you support. In addition to being an important legacy, a bequest offers generous tax advantages and may help your estate pass tax-free when it’s settled. Besides cash gifts, you may also bequeath stocks, bonds, and other property. Please consult with your attorney for details.
