What Is Planned Giving?

Planned giving is finding ways to make charitable gifts now or after your lifetime while enjoying financial benefits for yourself. A misconception is that planned giving is only for the wealthy. The truth is, even people of modest means can make a difference through planned giving. Every gift—no matter the size—is appreciated.

Depending on the type of your gift, you can:
  • Secure a retirement income for yourself and/or your loved ones.
  • Provide for your heirs.
  • Receive income or estate tax deductions.
  • Ensure the future of Jess Parrish Medical Foundation.
If you're not sure where to begin, try our Build Your Gift planner. This fun and easy tool helps you through the process of narrowing your choices. 

If you already have gift options in mind, click on Compare Gifts to see how your choices match up or click on eBrochures to request specific information on a planning option.
