Planned Gifts and Wills

Creating a legacy with a permanent fund at The Trust

Planned gifts

Like many of our donors, you may choose to set up charitable funds through deferred-giving arrangements. A key feature of many planned gifts is a tax advantage to you now for the commitment of a charitable gift later.

You can use the following:

Charitable bequests by will

After providing for your family, you may include provisions for setting up a charitable fund or add to one you already have. We can send you the legal language to put in your will. Your heirs will benefit from reduced estate taxes and you are assured that the charitable work you care about is carried on.
