How To Leave a Legacy
There are a variety of ways to make a planned gift, all of which may establish your legacy, support the School’s current and future students, and help you realize potential financial and tax benefits.
We are happy to help you make a deferred gift to Gilman that would be meaningful to you and the school.
Please contact Director of Major Gifts and Planned Giving Mary Ellen Porter at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-323-7178 to give future generations of Greyhounds endless opportunities.
- Charitable Gift Annuity
- Charitable Lead Trust
- Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT)
- Life Insurance
- Retirement/IRA Account
A gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime.
- A donor may designate Gilman as the beneficiary or partial beneficiary of a policy. While there is no income tax benefit with this option, there may be an estate tax benefit.
- A donor may donate existing life insurance policies; tax deductions may be equal to the policy’s replacement value.
- A donor purchases a policy and names Gilman as the owner and beneficiary. The premiums that the donor would pay are fully tax deductible. Upon the donor’s death, Gilman receives the insurance proceeds.
A gift that is both an estate-planning tool and a possible means for you to mitigate estate and inheritance taxes.
A donor may transfer his/her individual retirement account or IRA upon his/her death to Gilman as a qualified beneficiary. Individuals who are age 70 ½ can donate up to $100,000 a year to a charity or charities and satisfy their required minimum distribution.
A gift that allows you to leverage your retirement plan assets to benefit your family and support Gilman.
