Regardless of your age or the size of your estate, there are many vehicles which allow you to balance your own income needs, the needs of your family, and your philanthropic interests. You can help to ensure Saint Frances Academy's financial foundation without affecting your current lifestyle.
1) Make us a gift that costs nothing in your lifetime - make us beneficiary of your will or revocable trust, or beneficiary of your retirement plan. This allows you to leave your cash flow and current financial planning uninterrupted.
2) You do not have to use cash to make your gift. You can give us appreciated securities instead, and use an asset that costs you less that the tax deduction you will receive for it today.
3) Make Saint Frances Academy a partner in your giving. You can deed us your home but continue to live there, and you can make a gift that pays you lifetime income by creating a charitable remainder unitrust or annuity trust.
4) You may be holding assets that would benefit Saint Frances Academy more than they do you - such as a life insurance policy that you no longer need, or a collection of artwork that you no longer have room to display.
