Planned giving, also referred to as “legacy” giving, enables individuals to make larger gifts to St. James than they could make from ordinary income.

A planned gift is a major gift made during a lifetime or at death as part of a donor’s overall financial or estate planning. Planned gifts include gifts of equity, life insurance, real estate, personal property, and/or cash. By contrast, pledged gifts are made from a donor’s discretionary income. Pledges are included in the annual operational budget, but they are not assured.

Whether donors provide cash, appreciated securities, stock, real estate, artwork, partnership interests, personal property, life insurance, a retirement plan, or some other valuable asset, the benefits of funding generated through a planned gift can make this type of charitable giving very attractive to both, the donor and St. James.
