Planned Giving

What Is Planned Giving?

Planned giving is finding ways to make charitable gifts now or after your lifetime while enjoying financial benefits for yourself.

Planned gifts are sometimes referred to as "stop-and-think" gifts because they require some planning and, often, help from your professional advisors. Unlike cash donations, they are typically made from assets in your estate rather than disposable income, and come to fruition upon your death.

Depending on the type of your gift, you can:

  • Secure a retirement income for yourself and/or your loved ones.
  • Provide for your heirs.
  • Receive income or estate tax deductions.
  • Ensure the future of The College of Idaho.

A misconception is that planned giving is only for the wealthy. The truth is, even people of modest means can make a difference through planned giving. Contact the Development office today to learn how you can support our mission while ensuring your family's financial security.
