When considering charitable gifts, a donor may wish to consider alternatives to simply writing a check or making a large cash gift. Major gifts can take many forms, each offering different tax and giving advantages. Often, by making gifts of appreciated assets like stock, a donor can make the same dollar commitment but forward more net dollars to Limbs for Life Foundation AND receive a larger tax deduction.
For many, planned giving is the best way to leave a lasting legacy to those organizations in which they believe, because during one’s lifetime, money is tied up in assets and is not available for charitable purposes. Good estate planning also offers income, capital gains and estate tax benefits. Making a Planned Gift as part of your estate planning is assuring your wishes are being carried out along with tax advantages today. Below are types of Planned Gifts we will accept:
