Smart Giving Plan Carman & Area
As a family, make conscious effort to choose the charities and projects that mean the most to you, reflect the values you believe in and create the outcomes you desire.
You may be able to direct your gift in a way that targets specific projects and activities, helps the organization limit its fundraising costs and/or focus the time and energy of its volunteers and staff on achieving results instead of fundraising.
Financial advisors (bankers, lawyers, brokers and accountants) can help determine an approach that maximizes tax benefits and personal objectives. Depending on our stage in life, that could be payroll deduction, annual assessment, pre estate legacy projects or estate plans.
Research has concluded that givers live longer, healthier lives. Create and follow through on your own Smart giving plan.
We live in an extraordinary community. Generations before us have left a legacy of compassion and generosity. Smart giving plans help our generation leave our own legacy.
A smart giving plan can create the opportunity to redirect income or wealth that would otherwise go to taxes, toward a charitable activity or legacy within our community. Simply put, “Smart Giving” can turn a tax obligation into a community building block through the charity of your choice.
Whether the smart giving plans for your chosen charities include an annual gift, payroll deduction or an estate plan, we encourage families to begin (or continue) a discussion about their charitable goals and objectives, then talk to their financial advisors about how to achieve those objectives most effectively.
