Make a Gift, Leave a Legacy!
When we give to charitable causes, we enrich not only our own lives, but those touched by our generosity. While planned gifts help for the future, gifts today help with the operation and provide additional day to day support of our residents who are unable to pay fully for the care and support they need.
Many people choose to include their charitable interests in their long-range estate planning. There are a number of ways to preserve the financial security of one's self and loved ones while also providing for charitable gifts.
Examples of planned gifts include:
Wills & Bequests
A gift to The Cedars in your will allows you to retain your assets during your lifetime and/or the life of your spouse.
Designations may be for a percent of your estate or a specified amount. Designations may be for a percent of your estate or a specified amount.
Transferring a life insurance policy's ownership to The Cedars can result in tax benefits for you and a generous gift for the hospital. The Cedars can also be included as a beneficiary of a policy.
A charitable trust can provide income for you and/or your spouse while you are living. Thereafter, The Cedars can be named to receive the remainder of the assets. Other charities can be named as principal recipients as well.
Charitable Gift Annuity
A charitable gift annuity is the gift that gives back. It provides a way to make a gift to your favorite charity and still receive an income for yourself or others. By giving a lump sum (usually $10,000 or more) to The Cedars, you can receive an annual fixed percentage rate of return for life. It's as easy as a bank CD, and it supports The Cedars while providing a nice rate of return.
Other charitable gift options include a direct gift of cash, appreciated securities or real property, retirement plans, and living trusts.
Consult with your advisors on the best way to prepare an estate plan that fits your unique needs and wishes.
