Donations through Estate Planning

Through effective gift planning many Jackson-Feild Homes’ donors are able to balance their personal estate goals with their charitable interests while realizing important tax benefits. A variety of plans and instruments are available ranging from a simple bequest to a more complex trust agreement.

Planned giving or estate planning are unique and suited to the individual needs and desires of the donors. No two estate plans or planned giving documents are alike. Each reflects to donors interests, desires, capabilities and priorities of the person for whom it is prepared. A good estate plan will result in the best management of your assets now and later, for your loved ones. It can include many aspects including retirement planning, life insurance, trust instruments, and others. In virtually every instance, an estate plan should include a will.
