Planned gifts include gifts through a will, life income gifts, charitable gift annuities, life insurance, charitable trusts, etc:
- Wills and bequests — You can name Gwen's Girls as a beneficiary of your will, living trust or retirement plan. Ways to name Gwen's Girls as a beneficiary include:
- Specific bequests for a dollar amount, percentage or property
- Residual bequests for the remaining amount in an estate after all taxes, debts and expenses have been paid
- Contingent bequests for all or a portion of an estate, especially when there are no other surviving beneficiaries
- Life income gifts and charitable gift annuities — You can irrevocably transfer assets to Gwen's Girls now, and in exchange, you (and a survivor, if you wish) receive income for life
- Gift of life insurance — You can claim a charitable deduction for your life insurance's cash surrender value, and the proceeds are completely removed from your estate
We urge you to consult with your attorney or professional tax advisor about the possible benefits of making a planned gift to Gwen's Girls. This foresighted generosity saves you in taxes, gives you peace of mind and gives girls a future.
