What is planned giving?
- Planned giving refers to any charitable gift made during one's lifetime or at passing as part of an overall financial and/or estate plan. Making a planned gift to the JCCF is creating a legacy that will save lives.
- Despite the commonly held belief that one must be wealthy or over a specific age, planned gifts do not require you to be in a certain income or age bracket.
Is it true that I can realize certain tax advantages and receive income now?
- Yes, depending on the asset used to fund the gift and when the gift is made, you may be eligible for certain tax deductions or even receive income during your lifetime. Different gifts may benefit you in different ways. We can help you find the perfect plan that meets your financial needs and fulfills your philanthropic interests.
How does planned giving benefit the JCCC?
- Planned gifts from loyal supporters help ensure the JCCC's mission to end cancer through research continues.
