Revocable Planned Giving Methods

Revocable planned giving methods allow donors to benefit charity through their estate while providing the flexibility to change their decisions if financial or other issues warrant. Property passing to charity, via revocable methods, at the time of death may qualify for an estate tax deduction, but do not qualify for a tax deduction during the donor’s lifetime. READ MORE.

Irrevocable Planned Giving Methods

These options transfer cash or ownership of assets to Great Marriages in exchange for an income or estate tax deduction.  Some of these irrevocable gift options like charitable gift annuities or charitable remainder trusts generate current income payments for the donor’s and/or beneficiaries.  While establishing these methods takes more time and cost, the resulting benefits are quite remarkable. These methods can be established during life, or through the donor’s estate plan, providing security for family members and favored charities. READ MORE.

Retirement Plan Assets

Designating Great Marriages, in your retirement plan assets, is an easy, low cost, tax efficient way to make a significant difference for couples and families impacted by the programming and ministry of Great Marriages.  Sometimes assets like a traditional IRA, 401(k) or 403 (b) retirement plan may be worth more than you had originally planned.  These tax-deferred assets are both intelligent and easy property to make charitable gifts from, due to how they are taxed.
