Planned giving, also referred to as gift planning or legacy giving, is a way to create a lasting impact for your organization. Unlike an annual gift, a planned gift is typically for the future and often not received until after a donor’s death. Research demonstrates that donors with legacy gifts also give more to a nonprofit during their lifetime. We can help you develop a planned gift to grow your endowment.
Planned giving is a way for a donor to create lasting impact on their community by leaving a charitable gift through their estate plans. There are various forms of planned giving, such as leaving a charitable donation in a will or trust, donating appreciated assets, or setting up a charitable annuity or trust.
Colorado Gives Foundation offers planned giving support to our nonprofit endowment partners. We can help you develop a planned giving strategy to offer your donors.
We recognize the significance of planned giving to grow your endowment and can accept planned gifts of all types on your behalf.
