The Legacy Circle was created to support Angel View's long-term mission of providing services through generous philanthropic estate gifts and grants. Angel View is proud to acknowledge and steward estate gifts made by supporters who become members of the prestigious Legacy Circle. Members can be recognized by the name of the donor or donors, in honor of or in memory of loved ones, or anonymously.
People sometimes call us to say they would like to leave all of their household goods to Angel View. We appreciate the generosity! In order to accomplish that goal, the gift would need to be stated in a will or living trust (please see below).
Some of the most common types of Planned Gifts are:
Charitable Remainder Trusts
A charitable remainder trust enables a donor to transfer cash or assets, especially appreciated assets, to a trust and receive income for life. The named charity receives the benefit of the cash or assets.
Charitable Lead Trusts
The reverse of a charitable remainder trust, the charitable lead trust pays an annuity or a unitrust amount to Angel View for the term of the trust. The remainder is paid to the donor or a named beneficiary.
Donors can name Angel View as a death beneficiary on a life insurance policy or transfer ownership of a policy to Angel View.
An outright gift of cash, securities, property or other assets may entitle you to receive a charitable deduction.
Will or Living Trust Bequests
You may leave a bequest of cash, household goods, stocks and bonds, or properties to Angel View in your will or living trust. Doing so may enable you to take advantage of the unlimited estate tax deduction for property that passes outright to a charity.
