Planned Giving is a charitable donation provided during a donor's lifetime but not available until some time in the future. The simplest and most common type of a planned gift to a charity is a bequest in a will.
Other types of planned gifts include gifts of real estate, appreciated assets, charitable remainder trusts, pooled income funds, charitable gift annuities and others. 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.
The general goal of a planned gift to a charity is to allow one to support their heirs (families), avoid excessive taxes and help their favorite charities at the same time.
