Planned Giving – Wills, Trusts, Stocks, Assets

Planned giving, sometimes called legacy giving, allows you to make a contribution benefiting generations to come. Most often, a planned gift takes the form of a bequest in a donor’s will or living trust. Other planned giving opportunities include the donation of stocks and securities, real estate, retirement account balances, and life insurance.
