What is planned giving?
Planned giving is the process of donating planned gifts. A planned gift is a contribution that is arranged in the present and allocated at a future date. Commonly donated through a will or trust, planned gifts are most often granted once the donor has passed away.
Four Easy Ways to Give through Planned Giving
- Will: You can make a bequest or gift to GSCP2P through your estate by including a provision in your will or living trust. This gift can be in the form of cash, stock, real estate or other assets. The amount can also be designated as a percentage or fixed amount, depending on how you want to give your gift.
- Beneficiary: You can name GSCP2P as the beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy. Amounts can be designated as either a percentage of the assets or a specific dollar amount.
- IRA Distribution: Did you know that you can transfer funds directly from your IRA to GSCP2P? Donors over the age of 70 1/2 can make gifts up to $100,000 and have the amount be eligible as part of their yearly minimum required distribution.
- Custom: Consult your estate advisor about different ways that you can customize a planned giving approach that best suits your goals and financial needs.
