Consider making a gift that will impact kids in southeast Michigan for years to come. You can provide for your own future and create a legacy for the kids we serve.
Gift planning is an art that combines financial planning, estate planning and tax planning techniques to enable friends to make gifts of surprising significance, often with dramatic tax and financial rewards.
Planning How To Give
You might want to join our many friends who have helped through bequests – gifts through their wills or living trusts. You also could choose to make a gift that reserves lifetime income to you or a family member. Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan would benefit in the same manner as if you had made a bequest, but you would be entitled to charitable deductions and other tax benefits today. Or you may prefer the simplicity of an immediate gift of cash or property. By tailoring the form of your gift to fit your personal situation, you can gain maximum tax rewards, maintain financial security and make a truly meaningful contribution.
You may wish to consider:
- A bequest – a gift given through your will or trust.
- Life Insurance – Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan can receive all or part of a policy that you no longer need.
- Life Income Gifts – consider a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust so you can receive income for your lifetime and benefit Boys & Girls Clubs later.
- Retirement Assets
The Heritage Club is made up of special individuals who have made a commitment to include Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan in their estate plans. If you are interested in planned giving, we would love to talk to you about the many options available. As a member of the Heritage Club, we will celebrate your generosity now for a gift that we will receive later.
To find out more about these options or to discuss the planned giving vehicles that might be right for you, please call (248) 473-1400.
