Planning Resources, 2021 Giving
As we move into 2021, we hope you harness the sense of renewal and realignment that graciously comes to us each new year to reassess and renew your philanthropic goals.
You may already have a plan set in place to make sure there is good happening in your world. It may be your alma mater or perhaps a literacy program or food bank in your community.
As you continue using your tried-and-true modes of giving, such as your donor advised fund, consider some of the items explained in our video library as you plan your 2021 giving strategy.
Have you thought about making a gift that costs nothing during your lifetime? Or perhaps you have not considered the tax implications if you plan to leave stock or IRAs to your family. If you donate them to a nonprofit, you could receive a tax benefit instead.
Our video library is beneficial for anyone thinking ahead and unsure of what questions to ask. These videos contain substantive topics of interest for nonprofit organizations and donors alike. We hope this resource will inspire you. It is the collective impact of people like you who will ensure 2021 is full of hope and light. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
