Planned Gifts: Preserving the Past for the Future
Did you know there are ways to support Historic Travellers Rest that won’t affect your current lifestyle or your family’s security? You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime, leaves your cash flow and current financial planning unchanged, and fulfills your personal philanthropic goals.
Known as “planned giving,” a gift of this nature can provide an immediate tax benefit to you, potential lifetime income for you and a loved one, plus long-term financial support to Historic Travellers Rest.
Thoughtfully done, planned giving can provide benefits to you and your loved ones, as well as to generations of future visitors to Travellers Rest.
While everyday gifts, like cash donations and special event ticket purchases, allow us to provide the unique visitor experiences that make Travellers Rest so special, planned gifts allow us to consider future needs and how to best address them.
Planned gifts, made through consideration of your total assets, can allow you to provide for your loved ones, and help assure that Travellers Rest remains at the forefront as a premier historical resource for generations to come. Utilizing assets such as life insurance policies, real estate and appreciated stocks as planned gifts can provide significant tax benefits to your heirs and your estate.
The easiest and most common way to make a planned gift is through a simple bequest in your will. Bequests also avoid federal estate taxes, which can take away a large percentage of your total estate.
There are many different types of bequests with varying tax implications. We urge you to always seek the advice of financial and legal professionals before making any planned giving commitments.
We would be delighted to arrange a private meeting if you would like to learn how you can make a lasting impact on our collections, exhibits, and programs through your planned gift. And please let us know if you have already included Travellers Rest in your estate plan, so that we can properly recognize your generosity.
All planned gift conversations are strictly confidential.
