Creating a Legacy
Estate planning involves the process of incorporating your personal goals into a plan for building up and protecting your assets.
Planned giving presents you with a valuable opportunity. It gives you a chance to leave a legacy of protecting the most vulnerable, especially unborn children, against the threat of death.
Benefits of Planned Giving
Planned giving allows you to:
- Further the work of Life Legal
- Receive estate tax deductions
- Choose which types of assets to give
- Minimize tax burdens
- Control your assets during your lifetime
You can give a legacy gift to Life Legal through your will or living trust, however there are advantages to a revocable living trust.
The Revocable Living Trust
To make a general gift to Life Legal in your will or living trust, you can include the following language:
“I give, devise and bequeath to Life Legal Defense Foundation, Federal Tax ID # 68-0191488 the sum of $_____________.”
You may also donate stock, a percentage of your estate, or real property.
