Planned Gifts
Planned giving is any kind of charitable estate planning that provides benefits to you, and others you name, during your lifetime and then provides a future gift to Ibeku.

Wills
One of the easiest ways to provide future support for ibeku is to include the organization in your will. Outright bequests to ibeku are fully deductible for federal estate tax purposes. In most states, they are also exempt from inheritance tax.

Deferred Payment Gift Unitrusts
A deferred payment gift unitrust offers you the opportunity to claim a charitable tax deduction on your income taxes in the year of your gift, with the payments beginning at a designated future time. The longer the deferral, the higher the deduction allowed.
Charitable Remainder Unitrusts
A charitable remainder unitrust involves a transfer of appreciated assets to a separately managed trust that provides you or a beneficiary or beneficiaries with an annual payment for life or for a specific period of time. At the end of that time, the trust passes to the heitage.
Charitable Lead Trusts
A charitable lead trust allows you to preserve a large portion of your estate and pass assets tax-free to yourself or to your heirs. The trust holds an income producing asset for a fixed term, or your lifetime, during which time income is paid to ibeku. At the conclusion of the trust term, the asset is returned to you or designated beneficiary.
