Planned Giving

A Legacy for Your Cause

Planned giving offers a way for donors to foster and leave a legacy for a cause about which they care deeply. A planned gift is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning (versus their discretionary income).
