Counseling Services gratefully acknowledges the charitable
contributions of our friends over the last 30 years.
In addition to the annual gifts, there are other ways
to contribute to ACS financially, such as through deferred
or planned gifts. These are gifts that can be made over
time or as a bequest. Planned gifts include annuities,
stocks and bonds, real estate, or life insurance policies
that name the organization as a beneficiary.
Like many of us, you may prefer that your assets remain
in the community, and you gain personal satisfaction
knowing that you have passed on your value to others.
Providing a gift in an estate plan leaves a powerful
message about the ideals and values of an organization
that was important to you during your lifetime.
While tax concerns may not be your primary motivation
to give to charity, you can benefit from an awareness
of structured giving programs no matter what your net
worth. An accountant or tax attorney will be able to
inform you about the multiple tax advantages that planned
giving will provide.
