Planned Giving

What is Planned Giving?
Simply put, Planned Giving strategies represent a way for a donor to leave money or assets to a nonprofit at his/her death; or a way for the donor to invest money now so that they can receive an income stream now from those investments and then bequeath the remainder of these assets to a nonprofit at his/her death.

Some Planned Giving Methods
Bequest – A gift to charity at death. It is the simplest type of planned gift to make and implement.
Gift Annuity – An agreement where a donor makes a gift of cash or property and the charity agrees to make fixed payments to the donor for life.
Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) – The CRT receives cash or property from a donor then makes lifetime or a term of years payments to the donor and then distributes the remainder to the charity.
Charitable Lead Trust (CLT) – The CLT receives cash or property from a donor and makes payments to charity for a specific period. At the end of the period, it distributes the trust property to a specified beneficiary, usually family.
Life Estate Reserved – The Charity accepts a gift of property – either a personal residence or farm – and the donor retains the right to use the property for her or his lifetime.
Pooled Income Fund – The charity receives a gift of cash or stock, invests it with similar gifts from other donors and then distributes a proportionate share of earnings to the donor.
Bargain Sale – The charity purchases property for less than the fair market value or accepts a gift of mortgaged property.
