The Advantages of a Planned Gift
Life is uncertain, and all of us want security in retirement. By leaving a planned gift, you can leave a legacy while ensuring that your assets are available until the end of your life. Then, your planned gift lives on to benefit the whole community.
Gifts may be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate after taxes and expenses, or a gift of real property, stocks, artwork, or other valuables.
If you have a large estate, planned gifts can help your heirs avoid estate taxes.
Bequests can be made to:
