create your legacy with free arts!
Making a difference is important to you. Charitable giving is an important part of your life and your core values. Like many people, you’d like to know that the causes and organizations you care about today will continue to thrive in the future.
The good news is that it’s easy to create a philanthropic legacy. In addition to supporting Free Arts through cash donations, consider making a planned gift.
What is planned giving?
Planned giving is a win-win approach to philanthropic donations that support Free Arts and can benefit you now or in the future. Simply put, “planned giving” is the transfer of assets to a designated nonprofit organization during a lifetime or as part of an estate plan. This forward-thinking approach to giving is “planned” because often these assets are not liquid, have tax consequences and are generally transferred via a will or other written means.
Planned giving is easy to do and you don’t have to be wealthy to do it. Whether including Free Arts in your will or trust for a modest amount, or a gift of house and property, there is an easy option that is right for you.
It can involve assets you might not think of.
A life insurance policy. Real estate. Stocks. Business holdings. A checking or savings account. These are all assets that can be leveraged in planned gifts.
It can provide generous tax benefits.
Depending upon the type of gift, short-term and/or long-term tax benefits may apply. Donors at a variety of income levels can benefit. Be sure to consult with your financial or estate planner for more specifics.
It can work in tandem with other family priorities.
Planned giving is not an “all or nothing” option. Gifts can exist side-by-side with other beneficiaries and personal priorities.
It is long remembered.
Designating a planned gift automatically makes you a member of The Legacy Society at Free Arts. Legacy society members often immediate recognition on Free Arts website, in publications and receive invitations to special events.
In addition to the satisfaction of making a meaningful gift, most planned gifts have immediate and/or long-term tax benefits. Consult with your financial advisor or estate planner and join The Legacy Society at Free Arts today!
