Planned Giving As important as outright gifts are to Claflin University, deferred gifts and other planned approaches to giving can often make more substantial capital gifts possible. Planned Giving is a charitable donation provided for during a donor's lifetime but not available until some time in the future. Through a planned gift, donors can give assets to Claflin University while retaining the income. Planned gifts such as charitable remainder trusts, pooled income funds and charitable gift annuities allow donors to give assets without loss of income. In many instances, such gifts may actually increase income. Planned gifts also enable donors to pass assets on to their heirs while supporting Claflin University and minimizing or eliminating taxes on those assets. In addition to planned gifts, bequests enable donors to make substantial gifts to Claflin University through their estates.
