Giving Methods

The following information offers ideas as to how you can take part in the shaping of Lauritzen Gardens' future through your gifts and support. Please take a moment to see how other people, perhaps in circumstances similar to your own, have found the means to offer support and in return receive the benefits of giving.   

Charitable gifts can take many forms. All gifts, of any size, are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law, and are greatly appreciated.  

Cash - Gifts of cash, by check or credit card, are available for immediate use by the garden and are normally fully deductible, to the extent allowed by law, for donors who itemize deductions.   

Appreciated Securities - Gifts of long-term appreciated securities such as stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares may be deducted at the fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift, and may provide the donor the further benefit of avoiding tax on the capital gain portion of the gift.   

Other Assets - Gifts of real estate, art objects, personal property and life insurance may be used to make a charitable gift.   

Pledges - Pledges provide prospective donors with additional flexibility in planning a gift and often enable a larger donation. Donors make a pledge commitment over a mutually agreed upon period of time.   

Planned Giving - With a Bequest or a Planned Gift you can create a legacy that will help ensure a healthy future for Lauritzen Gardens and our community. As part of your long-range financial planning, you may wish to make a planned or deferred gift, a gift that will be received after you have provided for your loved ones and yourself. Planned or deferred gifts may save taxes and fulfill your charitable plans.   

Life Income Gifts   

  

Charitable Remainder Unitrust   

  

Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust

Pooled Income Fund   

Life income gifts provide the donor with income while making a deferred gift to Lauritzen Gardens. Life income gifts can offer an immediate income tax deduction.   

Life Insurance Policy - The donor can designate Lauritzen Gardens as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy.   

Bequests - The easiest planned gift is to name Lauritzen Gardens in your will.   

Retirement Assets (i.e. Qualified Pension Plan, IRA, Keogh, 401(k) or 403(b)) - You designate Lauritzen Gardens as a beneficiary of all or a portion of such a plan.
