What is planned giving?
Planned gifts are a form of deferred giving. You hold on to your money or assets for the present, while making sure that you make a gift in the future. Your planned gift will ensure the financial future of the Center long after your lifetime, guaranteeing the Center can continue its mission.
Planned gifts can be either revocable, such as a bequest in a will, or irrevocable. Irrevocable gifts give you an immediate benefit from a tax deduction, but allow you to hold on to the asset until some point in the future, continuing to receive its benefits.
