How to Take Care of Family First
Demands on your time and wallet increase daily, and it’s easy to become overwhelmed with all the obligations that come up. Perhaps one of the items on your to-do list is to send a donation to help support Hindu Heritage Endowment, but because you are already stretching your funds in many directions, you may not be sure you can be as charitable as you would like at this time.
Keep Your Cash Flow
Adding a bequest provision to your will or living trust could be the answer. By making a gift of your assets at death – be it cash, stocks, real estate or other property – there is no need to affect your current cash flow. And since the bequest doesn’t go into effect until after your lifetime, you can change the provisions in your will or trust at any time.
If you wish to give us a percentage of what is left of your estate after other beneficiaries have received their share, you can. By making a gift of a percentage of your estate, your gift will remain proportionate to the size of your estate, no matter how it fluctuates. Plus, there are no estate taxes owed on amounts left through a charitable bequest.
Pledge Your Future Support
In many cases, bequests offer the best of both worlds. You retain full control of your assets without depleting them now, while helping ensure that Hindu Heritage Endowment continues to grow and thrive in the future. Contact us to learn more.
