Planned Giving


Planned Giving

 Planned giving allows you to help Safe Harbor Rescue Mission now and in the future. Multiple options are available for many different situations. For specific information, we suggest you talk to your financial and tax advisers.

Planned giving can help you:

  • Reduce your income taxes
  • Avoid capital-gain tax
  • Increase your spendable income
  • Retain payments for life
  • Achieve no-cost, worry-free asset management

 Types of giving include:

Gifts of assets:

The simplest way to support Safe Harbor Rescue Mission is through cash gifts, but creative gifts of assets can include stocks, bonds, and property (real estate and personal property such as artwork). These not only may provide you with charitable deductions, but often offer additional tax savings.

Gifts that pay you income:

Do you want to support Safe Harbor Rescue Mission, but worry about having enough income for yourself and your loved ones? Life-income gifts, such as gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and pooled income funds, can provide donors with an income stream, significant tax savings, and the satisfaction of supplying Safe Harbor Rescue Mission with important long-term resources.

Gifts by will:

Through various types of bequests for Safe Harbor Rescue Mission, you may secure a charitable estate-tax deduction for the value of the gift. Best of all, you will know that your generosity will support recovery efforts at Safe Harbor Rescue Mission for years to come.

Gifts of retirement plan benefits: 

You may consider using retirement-plan benefits to make a significant gift that will support Safe Harbor Rescue Mission. Because of the estate- and income-tax treatment of retirement-plan benefits, the cost of your gift to your estate and heirs is often relatively small.
