Planned giving

By including Bluffton in your will or estate plan, you sustain Bluffton in a very special way

A legacy gift is a commitment made during your lifetime that provides support to Bluffton at a future date. Legacy gifts are a wonderful way to provide larger support for Bluffton than you may have thought possible while still providing for a family and other estate planning goals.

Ways to make a Legacy Gift:

  • A bequest in your will or living trust is most common
  • Life income gifts, such as a charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder unitrust or charitable remainder annuity trust, provide a future gift to Bluffton, an income tax deduction and income stream for you or family
  • Designating Bluffton as a beneficiary of your Individual Retirement Account is a simple way to make a planned gift
  • A charitable lead trust provides financial support to Bluffton for a specified term with the trust assets returning to you or your heirs with significant tax savings
