Planned giving can include naming the organization as a beneficiary of all or part of an IRA, insurance policy, or retirement plan. It may list the organization in a will or trust, or be part of a living legacy through donations from a IRA qualified charitable contribution.
Legacy giving is becoming an important part of financial and estate planning for people of all ages.
