What is planned giving?

Planned giving, also sometimes called legacy giving or gift planning, is a way for individuals to donate to nonprofit organizations like buildOn in a strategic and thoughtful manner, often as part of their overall financial and estate planning. Planned gifts are typically designated to be received by the nonprofit at a future date, such as after the donor’s passing or upon the sale of an asset. Planned giving encompasses a range of methods for donating, including bequests in wills, charitable trusts, gifts of appreciated stock, and life insurance policies.

Why should I make a planned gift to buildOn?

Planned giving has a variety of advantages. Planned giving strategies can offer significant tax advantages for donors, such as reducing estate taxes or providing income tax deductions. It also allows individuals to make a larger impact by donating more than they might be able to afford with a current cash gift. Planned gifts can be a way to leave a lasting legacy and ensure your values and philanthropic goals are reflected even after you’re gone.
