What Legacy do you wish to leave for future generations?
Planned Giving is an excellent opportunity to protect assets for yourself and those you love. It’s also a great way to give back to your community and create a legacy that reflects your life’s work, your values, and your commitments.
There are many ways to leave a personal or family legacy to help sustain the Future Citizens Foundation for future generations, while at the same time providing individual and family (or other beneficiaries) with significant tax benefits.
Some of the legacy giving options you may consider include:
A gift that is given through your will or trust. Special tax considerations may mean you can provide for your family and still leave a significant legacy gift.
Life income gifts
These include charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and others. You can enjoy a steady income for your lifetime and benefit Sierra Vista later. All or a portion of this income can be tax-free, depending on your age.
Gifts of real property
Including a gift of a remainder interest in a home where you live.
Gift of Shares
Donate Stocks and Securities. Making a donation of publicly listed securities and mutual funds to Future Citizens Foundation is an easy giving option that also provides the opportunity for tax savings. You'll see the results of your gift today, receive a tax receipt for the value of your gift, and be exempt from capital gains tax.
