Planned Giving

Make a long-term gift that benefits both Sparc and you. Revocable deferred gifts such as bequests, living trusts and life insurance can provide you with the maximum security and flexibility in estate planning, while irrevocable deferred gifts such as charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts offer you income payments for life and/or specific tax advantages. Planned gifts can allow you to:

  • Make a larger charitable gift than you thought possible
  • Increase your current income
  • Plan for financial needs of a spouse or loved one
  • Provide inheritances for your heirs at a reduced tax cost
  • Reduce your income tax and/or avoid capital gains tax
  • Receive income from your personal residence or farm
  • Plan for the transfer of your business
  • Leave a charitable legacy for future generations
