Planned gifts can be an important part of an overall estate plan. A planned gift can provide methods of reducing gift and estate taxes and reducing the cost of probate. Capital gains taxes on appreciated assets may also be avoided if the gift is structured properly.
Bequests, or remembering Butte College in your will, removes assets from the donor's estate and reduces its exposure to federal taxes. Bequests can include: cash, securities or other personal property; a percentage of your estate; or the residue of your estate such as property remaining after other bequests have been fulfilled.
Life insurance gift opportunities range from naming the Butte College Foundation as owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy to using life insurance to replace assets given to the College.
Some donors elect to establish a trust to provide for the future of a loved one, in addition to Butte College. With this arrangement, you can provide for one or more individuals to receive an asset during their lifetime, then, at their death, the principal goes to the Foundation.
Charitable Gift Annuities
A charitable gift annuity is a legal agreement between a donor and the Foundation in which the donor gives money, securities or real estate, and in return, the Foundation pays the donor a fixed income for life. The amount received is determined by the value of the gift annuity rate; the annuity rate is determined by the donor's age at the time the gift is made.
When setting up a planned gift, it is important to work with a representative of the Butte College Foundation, as well as your tax advisor and attorney. For more information, contact us today.
