Outright Gifts of Cash or Securities

An outright gift in the form of cash or securities permits an immediate federal income tax deduction. Gifts of long-term appreciated securities may offer additional benefits.

Planned Gifts

These are bequests, gifts made over a period of time, and are structured to meet your specific financial objectives while also benefiting Collington. Planned gifts can offer significant advantages of favorable income, as well as savings on capital gains and estate taxes. These options allow donors to transfer cash real estate or other assets – while in some cases retain an income from the assets for life.
