Charitable Gift Planning
Gifts Anyone Can Make
Did you know there are ways to support charitable causes important to you that don't affect your current lifestyle or your family's financial security?
- You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime.
- You can make a gift that leaves your cash flow and current financial planning unchanged.
- You don't have to use cash to make your gift: you can "buy low and give high" by making your gift with appreciated securities instead.
- You can gift an asset you no longer need or want.
The IRS allows its most significant tax breaks for gifts of appreciated securities.
Give charitable causes important to you an interest in a closely-held or family business.
- New Policy - You can fund a future gift for charitable causes important to you and deduct premium payments.
- Paid-Up Policy - Give charitable causes important to you a policy whose coverage you no longer need.
- Gift-Replacement - Create a life-income gift for yourself; create an irrevocable insurance trust to restore the value of your gift to benefit your heirs.
Support charitable causes important to you by transferring an interest in a real estate or oil-and-gas partnership.
Make a substantial gift to charitable causes important to you through a transfer of residential, commercial, or undeveloped real estate.
