Planned Giving

The Institute for Humane Studies is pleased to provide this overview of several ways you can plan your charitable giving while managing your financial affairs. Whether your estate is large or modest, there can be significant tax advantages to a planned gift, enabling you to direct more of your assets to the people and causes that are most important to you, instead of to government to be spent by politicians.

The information provided here is not exhaustive, and we encourage you to contact our Director of Planned Giving with your questions.  Also, it is important that you seek advice from your accountant or attorney in making decisions about your estate planning.

We hope to work with you as you think about how to leave a legacy of liberty.
