Student holding a tool

With a little planning, you can make a gift to IYRS that will support both your personal, and your philanthropic objectives. There are many ways that making charitable gifts now or after your lifetime can bring immediate or future financial benefits to you and your family.

In some cases, your tax advisor or estate attorney can help you with these decisions and suitable strategies. Alternatively, we can refer you to a team of experts that assist IYRS donors to develop a customized plan to optimize your charitable wishes—being mindful of issues such as protecting your wealth and income, minimizing your taxes, fulfilling your succession planning, and reducing your risk of unforeseen liabilities.

Ways to Give

While the most common planned gift is a bequest in your will or living trust, other planned giving strategies can include the following:

  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Charitable Lead Trust
  • Life Insurance Policies
