Planned Gifts

A gift provided in your will may be a percentage of your estate, the residual of the estate, a certain item, or a specific dollar amount. Estate taxes may be reduced by a bequest to JCHS. 

Charitable Remainder Trust

This trust provides either a fixed or variable income for you and your family. Part of the trust qualifies for an income tax deduction and at the death of the last beneficiary, the assets of the trust are distributed to JCHS. 

Charitable Lead Trust 

This trust allows you to pass on assets to family members with significant estate and gift tax savings while allowing JCHS to benefit from the income for the duration of the trust. 

Gifts of Life Insurance or Pension Benefits

A gift of life insurance allows you to contribute a previously acquired policy that may no longer be needed for its initial purpose and realize tax benefits. JCHS may also be named as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, company pension or profit-sharing plan, or of a private fund such as an IRA, Keogh, or tax-sheltered annuity.
