Gift Planning: Plan Now to Give Later

Gift Planning is finding ways to make charitable gifts now or after your lifetime, many times while enjoying financial benefits for yourself.

Planned gifts are sometimes referred to as "stop-and-think" gifts because they require some planning and, often, help from your professional adviser. Unlike cash donations, they are typically made from assets in your estate rather than disposable income, and come to fruition upon your death.

Our featured charity this month is The Esplanade House. Visit them at:

The Esplanade House Children's Fund Mission Statement is: "To provide a safe, healthy and nurturing environment for homeless families while implementing a goal-oriented program designed to help homeless parents and children move from crisis to self-sufficiency."

The Esplanade House is a transitional supportive housing program for homeless families in Chico, California. They are celebrating 20 years of Service to Chico and I am helping them with fund raising and Gift Planning through Wills and/or Trusts. I am offering a free consultation to all that want to discuss Gift Planning through their Estate Plan.

The Esplanade House, Hope for the Next Generation documentary is scheduled to air on PBS and other local television stations.
