Legacy Giving and Planned Gifts

 

sunrise on beachAmericans are well-known for volunteering their time and other resources for the benefit of causes in which they believe. Through the generosity of others, all of our lives can be enriched.  The generosity isn’t limited to time and elbow grease, however, and many people decide to extend their charitable reach into their long-range financial planning. The Last Will and Testament is a powerful vehicle for establishing long-lasting support for organizations that are in need.


The IRS has granted GLNC, Inc. tax exempt status, and any gift to our organization is tax-deductible and will help offset inheritance taxes your family or friends might otherwise be obligated to pay.
