What is legacy giving?


Legacy giving is a way to support Safe Futures while protecting your assets and miminizing your tax liabilities. The tangible and intangible benefits of making a planned gift include:


  • Experience the power of giving: Your gift will have a significant impact on the future of your community.
  • Reduce income tax through a charitable income tax deduction for the gift.
  • Avoid capital gains tax on a gift of appreciated property.
  • Depending on the type of gift, retain income for life for yourself or a beneficiary.
  • Eliminate federal estate tax on property passing to Safe Futures at the time of your death.
  • Recognition for your support as a member of the Safe Futures giving society.
