A New Leaf's Planned Giving Legacy Family

Why A Planned Gift Matters

When you make a planned gift to A New Leaf, you are creating a lasting legacy that will continue helping families…changing lives for years to come.

Some donors who want to have a significant impact on peoples’ lives by making a transformational gift may find it easier through a planned gift rather than from current income or savings. A planned gift can provide you an opportunity to say what you want your legacy to be – for example, to support children’s programs, services for survivors of domestic abuse, specific shelters, or other programs. Planned gifts also may be permanently endowed, creating a reliable source of annual revenue for these programs.

Planned gifts may also provide significant tax advantages, including reduction in income taxes and/or estate taxes. Certain types of planned gifts can provide income back to the donor for a period of time or for their lifetime. Planned giving as part of an estate plan may also reduce or eliminate probate expenses. Some donors also consider a planned gift to be a meaningful way to express to loved ones what they want their legacy to be.

Planned Gift Options

There are many planned gift options to choose from that allow you to make a remarkable impact on a cause you care about. To make this easy for you, here are some resources on how to give a planned gift:

A New Leaf recommends that you consult your legal or financial advisors when considering what type of planned gift best suits your unique circumstances.
