You can give beyond your lifetime by remembering organizations that have made a difference in your life.  Your decision to leave a portion of your estate to Pilgrim Place will touch the lives of many residents who have lived on meager resources.

Life Income Gifts
You can benefit from life income gifts, gift annuities and other life income plans.  They allow you to give and receive.  Donors obtain a steady income as well as receiving significant tax deductions.  With the most appropriate life income plan donors can avoid capital gains taxes on the sale of appreciated assets.

Outright Gift of Securities
With the contribution of long-term appreciated stock or securities, donors can avoid tax on capital gains and receive an immediate charitable deduction on the full fair market value of the gift.

Gift of Real Estate
Make a gift of an asset no longer needed and generate an immediate income tax deduction and reduce or eliminate capital gains tax.  

Gift of Life Insurance
You have the opportunity to make a large gift with little cost to yourself by contributing a life insurance policy you no longer need.  You will receive a current income tax deduction and receive future deductions through gifts to pay the policy premiums.

Matching Gifts
Many employers have matching gift programs.  Your generous gift can be multiplied by a matching gift.  Pilgrim Place is eligible through its non-profit 501(c)(3) status to receive matching gifts from corporations, foundations and other similar organizations.
