Planned Giving

Gifts of Appreciated Property or Collectibles With careful planning, you can enjoy favorable tax benefits, such as a charitable contribution deduction or the elimination of long-term capital gains tax, from gifts of long-term appreciated securities and real estate. If you donate collectibles, you can deduct the amount of the appraisal for the items. Consult your accountant for details on planned giving benefits.

You can transfer ownership of an existing policy to PAVE or purchase a new life insurance policy naming PAVE as the beneficiary and/or owner.

Remembrance Gifts
