Planned giving is a responsible, helpful, and highly impactful way for a donor to support the organizations that matter to them. A planned gift to TEAM creates a legacy of Christian stewardship, and aids the spread of the gospel through missions. Planned giving is for anyone of any age, regardless of the size of their estate.
A planned gift is a transfer of the donor’s assets, as part of a donor’s estate plan.
Planned gifts can be highly beneficial to both the donor and the receiving organizations. Using tax-planning can help ensure that more of a donor’s financial legacy goes to the people and organizations they love, maximizing the usefulness and impact of their gift. Some planned gifts can even return income to the donor. Planned giving can be done in a variety of useful ways.
Ways to Plan Your Legacy Giving:
There are multiple ways to structure a legacy giving plan. It’s important to seek trusted advice from an estate planning professional who will help you maximize the effectiveness of giving to those who truly matter to you. Some types of planned gifts can return income to the donor, and many types reduce tax liabilities. There are three broad types of planned gifts:
- Gifts of appreciated assets.
- Gifts which return funds or benefits to the donor.
- End of life donations.
