Make a Planned Difference
Including Little Pink Houses of Hope in your financial plans provides a gift for the future for breast cancer families and leaves your lasting legacy for others to cherish. A legacy or planned gift may be made by designating Little Pink Houses of Hope as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, listing in your will or estate, distribution of stocks or bonds, or setting up a charitable trust.
I firmly believe that Family Gifting is a way of creating a path for the future for LITTLE PINK HOUSES OF HOPE. In this way, we are able to work hand in hand and touch the future and bring healing and hope to families impacted by Breast Cancer. It is my belief, that building a legacy in this way is everlasting like a pebble thrown into a stream; the ripple of love goes on forever.
What are the tax benefits of a Planned gift?
- Donors can contribute appreciated property, like securities or real estate, receive a charitable deduction for the full market value of the asset, and pay no capital gains tax on the transfer.
- Donors who establish a life-income gift receive a tax deduction for the full, fair market value of the assets contributed, minus the present value of the income interest retained; if they fund their gift with appreciated property they pay no upfront capital gains tax on the transfer.
- Gifts payable to charity upon the donor’s death, like a bequest or a beneficiary designation in a life insurance policy or retirement account, do not generate a lifetime income tax deduction for the donor, but they are exempt from estate tax.
