PLANNED GIVING

Major gifts and deferred giving

THE PLANNED GIVING PROGRAM

The Planned Giving Program is a way to help strengthen the Camas-Washougal Community Chest and assure that the CWCC can continue to assist local nonprofits that provide services and programs to thousands of individuals every year.  Planned giving gifts can assist both current programs and provide support for the future.

Gifts can be made during the donor’s lifetime that provide immediate tax benefits to the donor and increase support for community programs and services.  Appreciated gifts (publicly traded stocks and bonds and real estate) provide both an immediate benefit for the gift and eliminate paying a tax on the capital gain.  An IRA required minimum distribution can also be used to gift the CWCC and obtain a tax benefit.

Gifts can also be made through estate plans such as wills, trusts, life insurance, real estate, and brokerage accounts.  These gifts enable donors to have the assets available during their lifetime and provide the gift at the end of life.  Properly designed documents transfer the gift to the CWCC and avoid estate taxes.

Gifts can be designated for the General Fund (current programs and expenses), the Endowment Fund (future programs and expenses) or a combination of both.

We have provided several documents that explain the CWCC Planned Giving Program and procedures for making planned gifts to the CWCC. If you have specific questions or desire more information, contact:

PLANNED GIVING – LOOKING TO THE FUTURE

Planned giving can create a lasting legacy by planning for gifts usually larger than those given to the CWCC for its annual campaign.  It’s a way to help local people through nonprofit programs and to help assure this assistance can be continued in the future.  LEARN MORE
