Including FFI in a Will & Planned Giving
No matter one’s age or socio-economic status, deciding how to bequeath one’s assets is one of the most important decisions of a lifetime. How will you choose where to leave your legacy? Will you support our cause fifty years from now? At Friends Forever International we help people determine an area of our program they feel passionate about sustaining for the long-term. What better gift is there to leave this world than leaving the legacy of peace?
What is Planned Giving?
Planned giving – or charitable gift planning – is the term for a donation of assets to a charitable organization at the time or in anticipation of death.
The simplest form of a planned gift is a charitable bequest through your will or trust. With a bequest, you can direct a specific dollar amount or assets to FFI or direct a percentage of your estate to FFI.
Other planned gifts are more complex. To learn more about life-income gifts such as charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and charitable lead trusts, please contact Steve Martineau or speak with your estate attorney.
How do I make a planned gift to FFI?
There are many ways you can make a gift that will cost you nothing today and help you make a tax-wise investment in both your future and the future of Friends Forever International. You can support FFI’s mission by:
Including FFI as a beneficiary in your will or trust.
Naming FFI as a beneficiary of an IRA, retirement plan, insurance policy, or bank account.
Creating a charitable trust or another life-income gift.
