There are many different forms of planned giving. Planned gifts come in all sizes and anyone can do it! Here are five examples to help you find one that’s right for you:
Bequests: Making a gift through your will or Living Trust.
We have partnered with FreeWill, an online tool that guides you through the process of creating a legally valid will in under 20 minutes 一 completely free of charge. In addition to taking care of your loved ones and their future, you can use this tool to protect land in Western New York and continue our mission for years to come. Get started on your free plans today.
Life Income Agreements: Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust, Charitable Gift Annuity, Deferred Payment Gift Annuity, Charitable Lead Trust, Charitable Remainder Unitrust, and Pooled Income Fund.
Life Insurance and Retirement Plans: Name us as a beneficiary on your beneficiary form.
Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust: receive a tax deduction and annual income; leave the remaining assets to us.
Did you know that Charitable IRA Rollovers allow donors age 70 ½ and older to transfer Individual Retirement Account (IRA) assets directly to public charities, count the transfer toward their required minimum distribution and exclude it from taxable income?
If you have already left a gift to the Land Conservancy elsewhere, you can use FreeWill's Outside Bequest Tool to report your gift and let us know!
