Your personal financial benefits of planned gifts to Keep America
Beautiful will depend on your individual situation, but the opportunity
to make a difference is always great. KAB encourages all its donors to
seek the advice of their financial and legal advisors regarding the tax
implications of any gift.
Gifts by Will or Living Trust
You can name Keep America Beautiful as one of the beneficiaries in your will. Similarly, a provision can be made in a living trust document. You may direct that these gifts be left in honor of family members, friends, or others as a tribute to their achievements. Discuss the charitable deductions with your advisors.
Charitable Remainder Trust
One versatile and effective estate-planning tool is the charitable
remainder trust. Assets are transferred to a trust that pays income to
one or more named beneficiaries for life or for a stated number of
years. After that period of time, the remaining assets transfer to Keep
America Beautiful. The donor is entitled to an income tax charitable
deduction, while enjoying the benefits that come from helping to secure
his or her financial future.
