Planned Giving

You believe in the work of Marcfirst, and you want to make sure that we will be here for individuals with developmental disabilities for years to come. You want your gift to make a difference. Many families and friends, just like you, have made a planned gift donation to Marcfirst that helps us build a secure future.

Planned giving is a tool that allows you to achieve your goals for Marcfirst as it enhances your own personal financial plans. There are several ways to make a planned gift:

  • During your lifetime, you can make an outright gift of cash, securities, or other property (real estate, personal property, etc.)
  • Make a gift through your will, bequests, revocable trust or through distribution from a retirement plan or life insurance policy
  • Make a gift that returns lifetime payments to you, your spouse or other individuals as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust.

By including Marcfirst in your planned giving, you will:

  • Maximize your charitable contribution
  • Qualify for tax deductions under both state and federal law
  • Turn appreciated assets into income for yourself and/or family members
