Types of Planned Gifts

Bequests: Make a meaningful gift to Partnership that costs you nothing during your lifetime by naming Partnership in your living will or trust.

Retirement Plan/IRA: By naming Partnership as a beneficiary of your retirement plan you can make a substantial future impact and save your loved ones from paying significant taxes owed at the time of your death.

Life Insurance: Did you know you can make a large gift at little cost to you by naming Partnership as a beneficiary of an old or new insurance policy?

*Consult your financial advisor today to determine which planned gift works best for you and your financial goals.
