Gifts in Memory or in Honor
What better way to honor a loved one than with a gift to Beacon? We will send an acknowledgment to the person being honored or to the family of the deceased.
Planned giving opportunities come in many shapes and sizes and offer significant tax and philanthropic benefits to the donor. With a planned gift:
- Your giving capacity increases
- You can receive an immediate tax deduction and avoid capital gains tax
- You gain a sense of philanthropic accomplishment
- You can protect your assets and ensure that they are used to support your interests
- You can make a lasting impact
Planned gifts can come in the form of bequests or gifts of real estate, life insurance, and appreciated securities. Gifts of charitable remainder trusts are also an excellent way to donate while receiving both immediate tax benefits and income. You should review your personal estate plan with your financial and legal advisors when considering a planned gift.
Donors who make planned gifts become members of Beacon’s Legacy Society and are acknowledged in the Annual Report and through periodic newsletter articles.
