Planned Giving is having a say in what happens to your assets, and it protects your wealth for the enjoyment of your beneficiaries. With an estate plan in place and by taking a few basic steps to prepare, you can reduce the stress to family members and loss of estate value considerably. Your estate plan should reflect what is most important to you and your loved ones.
“I care about making the world a better place, and my will is my last shot at expressing what I feel is important,” said Jim Donohue, dedicated volunteer and long-time supporter of the Friends of Fish Creek, “Avoiding capital gains taxes, and getting a valuable charitable tax receipt, while supporting charities that share my values makes sense to me. My family is proud of my careful planning that I have done to leave a legacy that is important to me.”
Considering the Friends of Fish Creek in your legal will or through other philanthropic means is one of the best ways to ensure that future generations will enjoy this breathtaking natural area as much as you and your family do. Legacy gifts allow you to make a future donation to the Friends of Fish Creek without affecting your current financial circumstances. Regardless of the size of your planned gift you can be sure that your gift will continue to make a lasting and vital impact on the park that you care for. Giving options may even substantially reduce your taxes. Your legacy will help ensure that the important programs operated or sponsored by the Friends of Fish Creek can continue and expand. A planned gift in your will is a wonderful way to help protect and preserve this park so that future generations can enjoy it as much as you and your family do.
