Planned Gifts and Bequests
Through planned gifts to the Association, donors can provide lifesaving and other emergency medical services to the community of St. George, while realizing tangible financial gains. Benefits are realized through future estate tax savings, current income tax savings, reduction of capital gains taxes, and development of a lifetime income stream.
Planned giving techniques allow an individual to make charitable contributions at a future date. They also enable you or your family to retain the use of an asset until that future date. This can meet estate-planning needs, while also fulfilling your charitable intentions. Through careful planning, you can have more control over what your heirs and favorite charities ultimately receive. There are a number of different planned giving tools, and financial or legal advisors can help you evaluate the best tool or strategy for your particular situation.
A bequest (providing for the Association in your will) is the simplest form of planned gift and allows you to provide an enduring gift to the Association.
In most cases, the language to include is brief and simple, such as:
Your bequest can involve a cash gift, real estate or securities. Please do let us know about your decision, so your gift can be properly acknowledged.
I hereby give The St. George Volunteer Firefighting and Ambulance Service, a nonprofit organization, a bequest of $_____ to be used for its general charitable purposes.
