You can achieve your philanthropic charitable giving goals and preserve your legacy by gifting some of all of your estate to a charitable endeavor. Consider if you want to make a contribution to a religious organization, college, medical research organization, or other qualified charitable organization in your will or during your lifetime.
There are many charitable planned giving options available to you. For example, you can make a planned gift by naming a charity as a beneficiary of your last will and testament, life insurance policy, or retirement plan. You can also name a charity as a beneficiary of a charitable trust.
