One of the simplest ways to support our mission and ensure the longevity of our programs is through a bequest. You can designate a specific asset, a set sum of money, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder of your estate once other bequests, debts, and taxes have been paid. In return, your estate receives an estate tax deduction for the amount of your gift. Charitable bequest typically enjoy unlimited deductions from federal and state inheritance taxes.
A properly planned bequest can even result in a larger estate passing to your non-charitable beneficiaries. Memorials provide a tax deduction for the value of the gift, plus there is usually no capital gains tax on gifts of appreciated property.
We can work together with you and your attorney or financial advisor to help you find ways to support our mission while ensuring your financial goals
What Is Planned Giving?
Planned giving options can help you maximize the personal benefits of your charitable giving, such as providing for your family, friends, and yourself while allowing you to make charitable contributions that you might have thought to be impossible.
With careful planning, it is possible to reduce or eliminate income taxes including capital gains tax, transfer taxes, gift, estate, as well as inheritance and generation skipping taxes. You can enjoy these tax savings while turning appreciated assets into income for yourself and others. Planned giving is a tool that helps you achieve your goals for VAC and enhance your financial plans and security.
