With maturity and wisdom often comes an interest in ensuring that the causes we care about, as well as the values that have played important roles in our own lives, are protected both now and in the future.
With strategic planning, you may find a planned giving vehicle that lets you address your own financial concerns and challenges while also allowing you to create a legacy that will extend the benefits of your generosity far into the future and on a much broader scale.
Planned giving involves providing for a future gift to charities through your financial and estate plans. FEBS welcomes gifts made through different planned giving arrangements. These arrangements can:
• Provide for you or your loved ones
• Entitle you to charitable income and/or gift or estate tax deductions
• Enable you to leave a legacy for FEBS
Please note that planned giving is general in nature and may not apply to all individuals. Prospective donors are advised to consult their own tax and financial advisors concerning the specific consequences of making gifts to FEBS.
So Where Do You Begin? With all the options available, which is the best one for you? Since the various gift plans offer tremendous benefits for you, the donor, you should base your strategy on your individual situation, just as you have done with all your financial planning. Below are some ways to begin.
