A charitable gift from your estate is a favored method of giving that enables you to achieve your financial goals, maintain control of your assets, and benefit CDHC.
While you may transfer many of your assets through your will or living trust, a document called a beneficiary designation controls distribution of your retirement plans, life insurance policies, commercial annuities and a variety of financial accounts.
Planned giving is a great way to support CDHC while generating income for yourself and your family. Learn about the gifts that allow you to give to CDHC while generating income for yourself and your family. The new – and higher – gift annuity rates announced are generating great interest from our supporters.
Donate your home, farm or a second home to CDHC and receive an immediate income tax charitable deduction, while retaining the right to live in your home for the rest of your life. If you itemize your deductions instead of taking the standard deduction you could save significant income taxes.
With a Charitable Lead Trust you’ll make a substantial gift to Cooley Dickinson Health Care in the form of fixed annual payments and pass assets to your family or other heirs at reduced tax cost. Or, receive immediate cash and make a gift to Cooley Dickinson Health Care by selling to us a valuable asset, such as real estate, for less than it is worth with a Bargain Sale.
