Planned Giving

Think about Planned Giving in your Estate Planning

donate2The term “planned giving” was coined 41 years ago by Robert F. Sharpe:

“A donor usually considers a current gift to your institution as a cash outlay now. To make a deferred gift, a person decides to give at some future date, either a number of years from now or at death. A deferred gift is a present decision to make a future gift, evidenced by a legal contract.

“While the name ‘deferred giving’ is best known to professionals in the field, it is not a term that communicates very much to the average donor. Therefore, we suggest the term ‘planned giving.’ When a person makes a planned gift, it suggests forethought.” Wikipedia
