Planned Giving

What Is Planned Giving?

Planned giving is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death as part of the donor's financial and/or estate planning. Unlike gifts to the Annual Fund, they are typically made from assets in your estate rather than disposable income, and come to realization upon your death.

A common misconception is that planned giving is only for the "wealthy." The truth is, even people of modest resources can make a difference through planned giving.
