Planned Giving

Planned giving is a way for individuals to make a significant contribution to support services for seniors while receiving financial benefits now or in the future.   Some ways you can contribute through planned giving include:

  • A gift included in your will or living trust
  • A gift of retirement assets, such as Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA's) or pension plans allow you to support the older population while eliminating taxes that may reduce your assets.
  • Gifts of life insurance you may no longer need offer excellent tax benefits
  • Appreciated stock

Please contact your estate planner or an attorney for appropriate legal planning.  Area Agency on Aging staff are available to work with you to determine how your gift could best meet the greatest need in the community and to identify recognition opportunities.
