What is Planned Giving?
A number of planned gift vehicles exist for donors to make gifts to a charity over time. Some of these include gifts of bequests, life insurance, remainder trust, and other annuities. Many tax advantages can be gained through these gifts. Please contact the Development Director, Bernie Schaefer, at 402-571-0200. Planned giving allows almost any individual to provide a gift to SPIRIT CATHOLIC RADIO while carrying out his or her own financial goals. Through planned giving, donors may find that they are able to make a generous gift while receiving financial benefits such as increased current income, tax savings, avoidance of capital gains tax, and reduced estate settlement costs.
