Giving Options

Gifts by Will or Trust

A charitable gift from your estate is a favored method of giving that enables you to achieve your financial goals, maintain control of your assets, and benefit Gould.

Naming Us in Your Assets

While you may transfer many of your assets through your will or living trust, a document called a beneficiary designation controls distribution of your retirement plans, life insurance policies, commercial annuities and a variety of financial accounts.

Life Income Gifts

Planned giving is a great way to support Gould while generating income for yourself and your family. Learn about the gifts that allow you to give to Gould while generating income for yourself and your family.

Charitable Lead Trust

Make a substantial gift to Gould Academy in the form of fixed annual payments and pass assets to your family or other heirs at reduced tax cost.

Retained Life Estates

Donate your home, farm or a second home to Gould and receive an immediate income tax charitable deduction, while retaining the right to live in your home for the rest of your life. If you itemize your deductions instead of taking the standard deduction you could save significant income taxes.

Bargain Sale

Receive immediate cash and make a gift to Gould Academy by selling to us a valuable asset, such as real estate, for less than it is worth.
