Planned Gifts

Planned or deferred gifts are gifts that require some planning, are tax advantaged and may be deferred. Such gifts include:

  • Bequests and Beneficiary Designations - Create a provision in your will or estate plan for your favorite program in IFAS.
  • Charitable Remainder Trust & Charitable Gift Annuities - Charitable gift annuities and remainder trusts provide you with income and a tax deduction while benefiting an IFAS program of your choice.
  • Donor Advised Funds - These gifts can benefit IFAS programs. 
  • Life Insurance Gifts - Make your IFAS program a beneficiary in your life insurance plans.
  • Real Estate - Outright or through a retained life estate, you may gift appreciated property held longer than one year. You receive tax deductions while avoiding capital gains taxes.
  • Stocks & Securities - Giving appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds that have been held more than one year lets you save on taxes twice: by avoiding capital gains tax and through a charitable income tax deduction.
