An outright gift to The King’s College is the most common type of gift. An outright gift of cash or appreciated assets such as property, securities, real estate, etc. can be advantageous for tax purposes.
If you make an outright gift you will receive an immediate charitable contribution deduction for the full value of the gift as allowed by law. This type of transaction will avoid capital gains taxation on gifts of appreciated assets.
Plan a Gift
Planned Giving enables donors to design charitable gift plans that not only benefit The King’s College, but which complement an individual’s personal financial planning.
Designating a planned gift can be a rewarding experience, knowing that your impact and influence on an institution will potentially leave a legacy.
A ‘planned gift’ is charitable giving through bequests and trusts. Planned gifts include income generating gifts, gifts that allow you to pass your assets to heirs, testamentary gifts, and gifts of real and tangible personal property. This type of commitment ensures both a bright future for The King’s College and provides valuable benefits to the donor.
- Life-long income
- Allows you to transfer your wealth to the next generation tax-free
- Reduced or eliminated capital gains taxes
- A current income tax deduction
- Reduced or eliminated gift and estate taxes
Giving a planned gift allows you to make a permanent mark on The King’s College by investing in the education of future leaders. Although a gift to The King’s College may help you realize financial and tax rewards, we hope that the primary motivation to give will come from your desire to partner with us in fulfilling our unique and challenging mission.
