Steps to a Legacy Gift
…for you who care so deeply for this mission and want to continue energizing opportunities, even after your lifetime.
The Gift of Our Lifetime
…for you who are using your assets fully today – like your financial, personal and real assets. After our lifetime, most of us have the opportunity to make the largest and therefore the most impactful gift of our lives.
…for you whose generous decisions and actions have been witnessed by others. Your planned gift may inspire others to explore how they also can be a resource to those who come next.
Your financial picture is unique, and so is your planned gift. Planning your gift may enable you to send more into action or to protect more future value for you and your family. Here are some of the more common gifts that you might consider:
- Bequest:Make a gift after your lifetime through your will or trust. This can be a fixed dollar amount, a specific asset, or a percentage of your estate.
- Charitable Trust:Trusts can combine flexible benefits including a generous income, tax benefits and a powerful gift to the theatre.
- Retirement Account:This can be the most heavily taxed asset in many estates. Choosing this as your gift might leave your less tax-burdened assets to your loved ones.
- Other:Many other giving opportunities might prove ideal for your situation.
