Planned Giving

Your Share In The Future:  Everyone has an estate and should have a plan for its ultimate use.  The estate planned by a will or other instruments ensures that all property and funds will be distributed in accordance with the wishes of the individual; that the administration of the estate will be undertaken by those who have that person’s confidence; and that tax and other benefits provided by law will be fully realized.

Careful planning under tax laws designed to encourage philanthropy makes possible a significant contribution to the future of the NASW Foundation and a perpetual recognition of a donor’s support. We address here the ways in which gifts can be made by will to benefit the Foundation.  The suggestions, however, are not all inclusive.  Where tax benefits are mentioned, these relate only to Federal tax laws, but the laws of many states often make possible additional savings.  Since individual circumstances control the most advantageous arrangement for each person, planning must be done in consultation with legal and other advisors.
