JPII Halo Society | Planned Giving
Sometimes called deferred gifts, the term planned gifts refers to specific strategies that (in most cases) benefit charity at some point in the future while offering immediate benefits to the donor.
Our tax laws not only encourage the support of charitable organizations; the tax code provides benefits that make it possible for the philanthropic spirit to be expressed through many forms of giving.
The gift of a paid-up life insurance policy is a good example. By designating a qualified charity as owner and beneficiary of such a policy, you will receive a charitable income tax deduction that, in most cases, is equal to your cost basis in the policy.
Planned Giving, Your Way
The Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) is perhaps the most versatile charitable giving tool (why not start with the most versatile). With the CRT, it is possible to bypass capital gains tax on the sale of highly appreciated assets, generate an increase in income, receive an attractive charitable income tax deduction, and fulfill your philanthropic objectives.
The CRT is a legal trust that can be constructed to produce a predictable annuity payment each year or take advantage of investment growth opportunities with income payments based on a growing trust principal.
