The Benefits of Planned Giving
Making a charitable bequest to the Henri Nouwen Society has significant benefits, including:
Your gift can be for any specific amount, a percentage, or the residue of your estate.
Peace of mind
You can make changes to your will at any time.
There are no extra out-of-pocket costs. Your current income will not be affected.
Depending on the type of asset, leaving a gift in your will to the Henri Nouwen Society can significantly reduce estate taxes.
Steps to consider when making a planned gift to the Henri Nouwen Society:
- Talk to your loved ones to let them know your wishes.
- Speak to your professional advisors. A lawyer, financial advisor, or accountant will have the expertise to provide you with the best advice as you make important decisions.
- Update your will. Decide if you want to give a specific amount or a percentage of your estate to the Henri Nouwen Society. Update your will with the recommended wording from your professional advisor.
- If you choose to, let us know that you have named the Henri Nouwen Society as a beneficiary in your will.
