A legacy gift, sometimes called a planned gift, is a charitable contribution you plan in advance to support a nonprofit organization such as NCLC after your death. Legacy gifts can take a variety of forms – a charitable bequest, beneficiary designation, or gift of a retirement account, for example – and can be designed to accommodate your unique circumstances. You can always modify your estate plan in the future if your circumstances or desires change.
Legacy gifts make a powerful statement about your ideals and the value you place on economic justice and opportunity. And a well-planned estate plan can provide substantial tax and financial benefits, including income tax deductions, reduced capital gains taxes, and reduced probate costs and estate taxes.
NCLC is deeply grateful to all of the members of The NCLC Legacy Society, and to all who consider including NCLC in their personal estate plan. Please feel free to contact us whether you have a quick question, are looking for planning resources, or want to discuss how you can make a difference for vulnerable people, families, and communities through planned giving. We’re here to help.
