Understand your risk. Make informed decisions. Advocate for yourself. Support HDGC research.
Planned giving is the act of making a commitment to give a major gift to a charitable organization, over time or at death, as part of your overall financial and estate plan. Planned giving is a way to support your charitable interests while retaining complete control of your assets during your lifetime.
Planning to leave a gift as part of your will or trust is a simple way to create a permanent legacy and support HDGC research into the future. There may also be tax benefits to your estate and your heirs.
Naming the HDGC Research Endowment Fund as a beneficiary of a charitable bequest in your will or trust provides ongoing support for the cause you care about. Bequests can be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or what remains after other bequests, such as those to family members, are satisfied. Your attorney or tax advisor can provide guidance on the best planned giving options for you.
