Planned gifts including wills, trusts, beneficiary designations, charitable trusts, and charitable gift annuities can make it possible for you to give more, and therefore have more impact, than would otherwise be the case. Planned gifts can make it possible for you to have an impact sooner and they can help individuals of all ages — including you — make meaningful charitable gifts. Trailblazer Society members are also invited to special events and are recognized in TART Trail’s annual report and website if you choose to be.
Once you have included TART Trails in your estate plans, we hope that you’ll let us know. Your attorney can advise you of the various types of charitable trusts and the estate tax benefits of each, and assist you in setting up a planned gift that is tailored to your personal needs. If you would like more information, please contact the TART Trails office at firstname.lastname@example.org, 231.941.4300.
