Planned Giving

While JCWC is always pleased to accept cash gifts, there are a number of options to consider. You might want to consider donating other assets.

For example, gifts to charitable organizations can include appreciated stocks or other securities, personal property, or real estate. These types of in-kind gifts make no impact on your cash flow during your lifetime, can relieve you of the burden of managing property, and help reduce your assets and taxes in the future.

JCWC can be named as a beneficiary on your life insurance policy or retirement fund. This can have real advantages when it comes to income and estate taxes since retirement funds may pass tax-free to charities.

Funding a charitable gift annuity or creating a charitable remainder trust can provide you a fixed, regular income for the rest of your life.

There are many ways to give that cost you nothing during your lifetime, reduce your capital gains, save on federal estate tax, and provide JCWC with valuable capital to help us accomplish our mission. If you have questions about how planned giving can benefit you and JCWC, an attorney, CPA or financial advisor can help you make a decision that works best for you.
