Each of us may recall a time when we have been personally and positively touched through the caring contributions of others. A vast majority of South Floridians give both time and money to local charities. But many of us are unaware that by making a gift in our Will or Estate plan, we are able to continue to help people in need.
Planned Giving involves integrating a donor's charitable gift into his or her overall financial, tax and estate planning objectives so as to maximize benefits to both the donor and Camillus House. Planned gifts typically come from a donor's assets rather than income, and can be either outright or deferred.
At Camillus House, we encourage our supporters to meet with their professional advisors to determine the best way for them to make a lasting tribute. Gifts made through a Will are a popular way to leave a lasting gift, yet only 50% of all Americans have one.
A Bequest to Camillus House will ensure that the programs and services we offer to persons who are poor and needy in our community will be available for future generations.
