About Planned Giving

What is a planned gift?

Planned GivingA planned gift can help you maximize your charitable donations to TC by employing strategies and choosing gift options tailored to your particular needs and goals.

Planned gifts include bequests, charitable gift annuities, remainder and lead trusts, a pooled income fund and giving through one's IRA or life insurance.

A planned gift is customized according to your needs and the assets you wish to use. A planned gift is a charitable donation, however, there are often tax benefits which offset the cost of the gift and they function as part of the donor's financial strategy.

With careful planning, a donor can make their ultimate gift and achieve, philanthropically, more than they thought possible while simultaneously providing for their families and meeting their personal needs.
