Bequests are a vital part of TNDI’s planned gift program. Many donors, after evaluating their family and philanthropic goals, make bequests to TNDI to help support its many programs through their wills, trusts, insurance or retirement plans.

Life Income Gifts benefit both TNDI and donors. Donors can receive numerous tax and financial benefits by creating a life income gift, such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust. The donor makes an irrevocable contribution of assets to fund the trust or annuity, may claim an immediate income tax deduction for part of the contribution’s value, and also receives income for life or for a fixed term of years. When the trust or annuity term ends, the remaining assets can be directed to support programs at TNDI.

Charitable Lead Trusts can make an agreed payment to TNDI for a specific term of years or for someone’s life. Thereafter, the lead trust assets are either returned to the person who created the lead trust (this person also receives an income tax deduction when the trust is created) or passed on to children, grandchildren or other loved ones (applicable estate or gift taxes on the value of the gift to the child or other heir are reduced or completely eliminated.)
