Planned Giving & Bequests
Plan Today to Give Tomorrow
When you make a plan for how to give after your life, you'll leave a lasting legacy of care that will help strengthen the Brandon area for good, for ever.
Plan Your Legacy
Planned gifts, sometimes called estate gifts, allow you to support your favorite nonprofits during your lifetime and beyond. When you give through your will or trust, you'll enjoy financial and tax benefits while also helping ensure that the work of your favorite Brandon-area nonprofits will endure for generations to come.
Planning for how you want to give after your life also influences how others will remember you. In that regard, planned giving is an opportunity for you to transfer more than just your wealth — it's a chance to express your values, celebrate your passions and lift up important community priorities.
Planning your philanthropic legacy enables donors to make larger gifts than they could from ordinary income. Some planned gifts even provide lifelong income to your family. Other gift plans use estate and tax planning to provide for charity and heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate. We can help you determine which planned giving option is right for you and your family.
Keep Brandon Thriving
Providing for your community through a gift after your lifetime is an opportunity to transfer more than just your wealth. It's an opportunity to ensure our community continues to thrive for future generations.
Maximize your desired impact
Having a legacy plan in place provides the maximum benefit to your community and the organizations which mean the most to you. It also allows you important estate and financial advantages — allowing you to give in the most effective and beneficial manner.
