Plan Your Gift

Donate Header 4

Gift planning offers you the chance to give to AG Bell now or after your lifetime, helping you align your charitable giving with your overall financial and estate plans. Many giving options offer you financial benefits, allowing you to make the greatest impact for children with hearing loss while maintaining the future security of you and your loved ones.

Planned gifts are sometimes referred to as "stop-and-think" gifts because they require some planning and, often, help from your professional advisors. Unlike cash donations, they are typically made from assets in your estate rather than disposable income, and come to fruition upon your death.

The most common planned gift is a bequest in your will or living trust. Other planned gifts include: charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder trust, charitable lead trust, an endowment fund, retirement plan assets, life insurance policies, a remainder interest in your home.

A misconception is that gift planning is only for the "wealthy." The truth is, even people of modest means can make a difference through gift planning.
