Planned gifts are end of life decisions about one's assets. Many alumni and friends of The Gooden Center have made decisions to remember the organization in their wills or estate plans.
A bequest in a will or living trust is the simplest and most common planned gift. It can be an outright monetary bequest, a percentage of your estate, a percentage of the "rest, residue, and remainder" of your estate after a number of other bequests have been fulfilled, or a specific asset such as personal or real property.
Other ways to make planned gifts are through:
- Appreciated Assets
- Appreciated Securities
- Retirement Plans
- Group Life Insurance
- Gifts of Real Estate
For those who include The Gooden Center in their wills or estate plans, we have formed the Legacy Circle to honor you. When you include The Gooden Center as part of your legacy gift you will automatically become a member of our Legacy Circle.
