A planned gift is created now for the future benefit of a nonprofit organization to provide for long term goals and responsible financial management. Planned giving is any gift, made in lifetime or at death as part of an overall financial and/or estate planning.
Cash, appreciated securities/stock, real estate, partnership interests, personal property, life insurance, or a retirement plan may be considered as part of planned giving. And you’re never too young to consider planned giving. Establishing a philanthropic goal of giving early on assists Bridges in being able to continue its commitment to the community for future generations.
Gifts to Bridges' Endowment
Bridges’ Endowment Fund was established as a special account to ensure financial resources and stability in the future. Endowment gifts ensure that an organization, cause or program receives a steady return on revenue to continue its work in years to come, in perpetuity.
Bridges counts on these dollars to plan services accordingly. A percentage of the total Endowment is granted to Bridges on a regular basis. The Endowment is managed with the goal of growing at least with the pace of inflation, so your gift will always maintain its buying power.
