Recently, I read an article recommended by the CFRE International organization. This was enlightening:
“The most financially successful nonprofits aren’t funded exclusively through well-executed annual giving programs or foundation grants.
They achieve long-term, diversified financial strength through legacy gifts — primarily bequests left in the wills of generous donors who believe strongly in their work.
If you manage a small or mid-sized nonprofit, just one legacy gift can fundamentally change your financial trajectory.”
WOW! This is an area of support First Tee has yet to explore. There are so many ways we can do this! Consider all of these options:
- BEQUESTS. Name First Tee of GKC as a beneficiary of a gift in your will or estate plan. Work with us and we can help determine any special use of your gift to ensure your legacy continues to be appreciated for years and years to come.
- Various Trust and Annuity Options. With a list of variations, trusts and annuities can provide you with a gift that gives in perpetuity or alleviate tax burdens.
- Real Property Gifts. Donating property to First Tee, for example, real estate or artwork can be a wonderful way to provide an impactful and transformational legacy gift.
Let me know if you would like to explore these beautiful, meaningful and lasting gifts.
Best to you,
