Reasons to Make a Planned Gift

In addition to making an impact on our future, a planned gift allows you to create a legacy that speaks to your values. It also offers you benefits such as:

  1. Your gift is generally deferred until after your lifetime, so your current income isn’t affected.
  2. With many planned gifts, you have the right to change your mind at any time throughout your lifetime.

Planned Giving is For Everyone

A common myth about planned giving is that it is only for the wealthy. The reality: Planned giving is for everyone! No matter your age or income, you need a plan. When you take time to plan, you create a secure future for yourself and your loved ones.
