Here are some of the more popular ways of giving.
Legacy giving, also known as “planned giving,” is a very personal donation. Typically the donor has a vision on how he or she wants to impact a charity for the benefit of future generations. It is all about making a difference in the future for a cause that you believe in today.
A planned gift might be an outright gift of funds or an asset today rather than in the future. Or it may be a bequest upon the donors death. It all depends on how you wish to set up your gift.
In the vast majority of cases, legacy gifts to charities are only a percentage of an entire estate. Some people treat a legacy gift to a charity as another heir in their will.
In all cases, the objective is to integrate the charitable gift into the donor’s overall financial, tax, and estate planning objectives in order to maximize the benefits to the you and to the Education Foundation.
