Planned Giving

Support our girls for a lifetime.  Planning your lifetime gifts to Girls Inc. of Santa Fe can have excellent philanthropic outcomes as well as tax benefits.   For example:

  • Donors can contribute appreciated property, like securities (link) or real estate, receive a charitable deduction for the full market value of the asset, and pay no capital gains tax on the transfer.
  • Donors who establish a life-income gift receive a tax deduction for the full, fair market value of the assets contributed, minus the present value of the income interest retained; if they fund their gift with appreciated property they pay no upfront capital gains tax on the transfer.
  • Gifts payable to charity upon the donor’s death, like a bequest or a beneficiary designation in a life insurance policy or retirement account, do not generate a lifetime income tax deduction for the donor, but they are exempt from estate tax.

“I give and bequeath to Girls Inc. of Santa Fe [the sum of $______ OR ____ percent of my residuary estate] for the general support of the organization.”
