With a planned gift, you can create a legacy that will continue your tradition of support and allow future generations to enjoy and benefit from the Cedarburg Cultural Center as you have. Some planned gifts offer immediate tax deductions as well as income for life.
There are many simple ways to include the Cedarburg Cultural Center in your estate plans. A bequest, charitable annuity or a gift of retirement fund assets each offers its own set of financial benefits for you and for the Center.
Gifts by Bequest
Bequests are a convenient and flexible way to support the Cedarburg Cultural Center. By naming the Center in your will or living trust, you can make a meaningful gift while maintaining control of your assets during life. Your gift to the Center may be either a specified amount of money or a percentage of your estate, or you may include the Center as a contingent beneficiary.
Gifts that Provide Income
A charitable remainder trust allows you to claim a charitable deduction for a portion of your gift when it is made, plus you receive an annual income during your lifetime. If you prefer, you can have the income paid to a loved one. These gifts are ideal for Cultural Center patrons who have highly appreciated stock and would like to receive additional income or provide support for a friend or family member.
Other Gift Options
There are many other planned giving options that might work with your financial plans. For instance, you can designate the Cedarburg Cultural Center as the beneficiary of your retirement plan assets or a life insurance policy. Please contact us or your financial advisor to discuss a legacy gift to the Cultural Center that will match your personal financial plans and philanthropic goals.
