What Is Planned Giving?
A planned gift is any major gift, made during your lifetime or after death, as part of a your overall financial and estate planning. Planned giving, often referred to as charitable gift planning or legacy giving, enables you as a philanthropic individual to support nonprofits with larger charitable gifts than you could make from ordinary income.
