Deferred Gifts

In addition to having the potential to reduce gift and estate taxes, a planned gift may also provide life income, avoid capital gains taxes and provide a current tax deduction. For advice, you may wish to consult an attorney or tax advisor. Donors making such a gift or commitment are welcomed into the Foundation’s Legacy Society.
