Planned Giving

Planned Giving is a set of ways a donor can leave money/assets to a non-profit at his/her death; or a way to invest money so that the donor receives benefits during his/her life and then bequeaths the remaining funds to the non-profit.
 
Planned giving, sometimes referred to as gift planning, may be defined as a method of supporting non-profits and charities that enables philanthropic individuals or donors to make larger gifts than they could make from their income. While some planned gifts provide a life-long income to the donor, others use estate and tax planning techniques to provide for charity and other heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor's estate.
 
Thus, by definition, 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.  What are the three types of planned gifts?
 
  1. First, outright gifts that use appreciated assets as a substitute for cash;
  2. Second, gifts that return income or other financial benefits to the donor in return for the contribution;
  3. Third, gifts payable upon the donor’s death.  Assets to give:
