What is an Endowment Gift?
A gift to the Endowment Fund means that your contribution can never be spent. Only the income earnings will be spent to improve our community parks, programs and facilities. It is a gift that keeps on giving – a true legacy.
The Endowment Fund is a great way to:
- Perpetuate a family name
- Leave a legacy
- Honor family or friends
- Give back to the community
- Provide tax benefits
Options For Giving:
- Cash Gifts: Simple and convenient. All gifts qualify for maximum deductibility for income tax purposes
- Bequests: A charitable bequest of cash, appreciated property, or a portion of your estate through a will or revocable trust reduces potential estate tax. This can also include beneficiary designation of retirement plan assets.
- Annuity Trust or Gift Annuity: Made with cash, this can provide you or others with fixed income payment while reducing income and estate tax. This can also be done with appreciated property.
- Appreciated Property: Gifts of appreciated securities or real estate create charitable deductions for full market value and bypass capital gains tax.
- Life Insurance: A gift of a life insurance policy allows leverage of premiums into a larger future benefit for the parks. Current deduction for donor of premiums or cash surrender value.
