Welcome! What is Gift Planning?


Gift planning is finding ways to make charitable gifts now or after your lifetime while enjoying financial benefits for you and your loved ones. We've created this easy-to-understand Web site to help you plan, for your future and ours. There are many easy giving options from which you can choose—strategies that enhance your personal well being, as well as New England College of Optometry and New England Eye.
