Give Later (make a planned gift)
Many donors give through bequests from their estate. Charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, remainder interests in real estate, and gifts of life insurance are among the most tax effective ways to support the Community Foundation or to add to existing funds. Charitable remainder trusts have the added advantage of providing excellent income and tax benefits for the donor before their assets are turned over to charitable purposes. A planned gift at ACF will allow you to pass on your vision for a stronger community.
