Why Planned Giving?
Planned giving, defined as engendering philanthropic gifts through estate planning, provides the greatest growth potential from individual giving sources. Individual giving comprises 85% of all giving nationally, and over $24 billion of all giving comes through estate planning!
Building endowment or a financial reserve can offset imbalances between budget demands and traditional income sources, such as government funding, annual funding (subject to year-over-year economic changes), and tuition and fees for services which are limited by market conditions and competition.
As trillions of dollars are transferred from estates over the next few decades, estate giving can provide substantial gifts while assuring individual cash flow for donors. Planned gifts often mean significant tax and income benefits.
Many organizations have strong and active constituencies of donors aged 55 and older, each of whom has built a financial base that can be a legacy of interest in your mission.
