What is a Planned Gift?
A planned gift is an impactful deferred gift made after considerable thought on the part of the
donor and his or her family. Types of legacy gifts include:
- Marketable securities
- Real estate
- Life insurance
- Charitable Remainder Trusts
- Charitable Giving Annuities
- Charitable Lead Trusts
- Charitable Bequests
Why make a Planned Gift?
Aside from certain financial benefits, a planned gift is a profound way to leave a legacy or create a memorial. Often legacy gifts create deep meaning for the donor and leave a generation-long memory of their passion for the arts. Though benefits may vary, some that would accrue to you in this lifetime might take the form of:
- An immediate federal income tax deduction for some or all the value of the gift.
- Elimination of capital gains tax at the time of the transfer if the asset is in the form of securities or real estate that has appreciated in value – Marketable Securities
