Gifts and Benefits
Here are some of the ways that Golden Givers have included Golden West Foundation in their planning:
Bequests: Remembering Golden West Foundation in your will is an easy way to keep control of your assets while you’re living, but plan for a significant gift at your death.
Charitable Gift Annuities: Dozens of people have taken advantage of the benefits of gift annuities for the Golden West Foundation. A gift annuity provides consistent and steady income, while also allowing for a gift to Golden West Foundation at your death.
Charitable Remainder Trusts: You can create a charitable remainder trust to make a significant, tax deductible gift to Golden West Foundation while retaining your right to receive income from the asset for the rest of your life or a term of years set at the start of the trust.
Charitable Lead Trusts: This is a great way to put an asset to work while you’re still alive. You support a cause with income until the trust ends and then pass on assets to your family, possibly avoiding some transfer and gift taxes when you do so.
Other Ways to Give: You might consider making a gift of retirement assets, life insurance, and other assets such as real estate and securities to Golden West. There are often tax advantages to doing so, and you can support Golden West’s commitment to make your community a better place for seniors for generations to come.
