You can help secure the future of programs and services provided by Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council through planned giving. This simple phrase—planned giving—contains a world of possibilities, both for you and for those who will benefit from your generosity. Planned giving is thoughtfully selecting—from a “menu” of gift giving opportunities—a way to make a charitable gift that is also favorable to you.
With a planned gift, Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council receives cash or other assets (stocks, bonds, real estate) at some time in the future, often after the donor has received lifetime income from the assets. These gifts can be revocable, meaning that you can change your mind about them before the gift actually is given, or irrevocable. There are several ways to fund a gift plan, including charitable remainder trusts, charitable gift annuities, living trusts, life insurance, endowment gifts, and others.
Endowment gifts truly are the gift that keeps on giving. The principle is never spent, only the interest generated from the investment is used, and so the fund remains intact in perpetuity.
We will be glad to provide more information, and encourage you to consult with an attorney or tax professional specializing in estate planning.
Donors receive a tax deduction for the market value of the securities, computed on the day of their transfer, while avoiding payment of capital gains on the stock’s appreciated value. Donors of stock are encouraged to consult with their brokers or advisors. The information on this website is not intended as legal, tax or investment advice.
