Gratitude House is able to restore hope to the lives of many women and children thanks to the support of our generous donors.
Planned Giving refers to charitable gifts that require some planning before they are made. Whether a donor uses cash, stocks, bonds, paid-up life insurance, Individual Retirement Account, real estate, or other financial assets, the benefits of funding a planned gift can make this type of charitable giving very attractive to both the donor and the charity. Planned gifts are popular because they can provide the donor with valuable tax benefits and, in some cases, income for life. Your attorney and/or financial advisor can advise you of the various types of annuities, charitable trusts and the estate tax benefits of each, and help to assist you in setting up a planned gift that meets your needs.
Another meaningful and lasting way to make a gift is by leaving Gratitude House a bequest in your Will or through your revocable living trust. Gratitude House is truly honored by such momentous donations.
There are several ways to do this: One way is to give a specific amount of money to Gratitude House; another way is to give a specific property to Gratitude House; and, a third way is to give a specified percentage of the residue of your estate to Gratitude House (the residue of your estate is that which is left over after all the specific gifts have been made, whether charitable or non-charitable, and estate taxes [if any], debts and administration expenses are paid).
Gratitude House should be referred to in your estate planning documents as “Gratitude House or its successor.” A bequest may be included in the body of a Will or as a codicil (amendment) to the Will. If you use a living trust for your estate plan, a distribution to Gratitude House may be included in the body of the living trust document or as part of an amendment to the trust. Gifts made through a bequest typically provide an estate tax deduction. We suggest you consult with your attorney and/or financial advisor for specific information.
