Planned Giving Options:
Meeting Your Charitable and Financial Goals
Planned Giving is a term that refers to setting up a mechanism to make a gift that benefits a charitable organization at some time in the future. No matter how you arrange your planned gift, it will have distinct tax, financial, and charitable benefits. Always consult with your financial adviser.
A Bequest is the simplest method of Planned Giving. A provision in the donor’s will provides a gift to charity out of the donor’s estate.
Other ways to make a charitable gift are the Charitable Remainder Trust, Charitable Lead Trust, and Gift Annuity. These can be structured in such a way that a fund is established so that the donor receives some income for a specific period of time or until the time of the donor’s death. For this type of Planned Gift, the Land Trust recommends that donors look to a large charitable fund such as the Idaho Community Foundation (idcomfdn.org) to administer the gift.
A charitable gift to the Wood River Land Trust provides for the enduring protection of land, water, and wildlife in the Wood River Valley and surrounding areas.
