Charitable gift planning is an extremely effective way for you to support The Florida Bar Foundation
and its mission while accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals.
To take some of the mystery out of gift planning, the Foundation has created a planned giving section of its website.
The site provides reliable and systematic information on various planned giving vehicles.
For more detailed information, you can download complimentary e-brochures on topics such as philanthropy and federal taxes, charitable gift annuities, making gifts of real estate, charitable tax planning with retirement funds, and other ways to give.
The site also provides a gift calculator through which you can explore the philanthropic and tax benefits associated with particular gift vehicles. And featured articles provide updates on relevant topics such as tax law changes.
You can also read about some of the Foundation's donors, why they chose to support the Foundation and what charitable giving options they chose.
The site does not offer legal advice, but it provides information that users can share with their legal and financial advisors when discussing gift planning options.
