Giving Opportunities And Planned Giving

Several friends of the International Independent Showmen’s Museum have chosen to help the Museum plan for the future by making a gift of marketable securities, making a bequest, or making another kind of planned gift to the International Independent Showmen’s Museum.

 

Gifts other than cash or securities may include life income gifts, whereby the donor transfers an asset and retains (or provides for another person or persons) an income for life; charitable lead trusts that may permit people to save on income, gift, and estate taxes; or bequests. Even gifts of cash and marketable securities may be considered to be planned gifts. In fact, any time you stop to consider the timing or tax benefits of making a gift, you may be making a planned gift.

 

Choose one of the following headings for the definition:

  • Marketable Securities
  • Assets Other Than Cash or Securities
  • Bequests
  • Life Income Gifts
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
