HOW TO GIVE:
We can help you structure a gift that provides both tax benefits and personal or family income while supporting your chosen cause.
WHO TO GIVE TO:
ICF can connect you with the nonprofit organizations and community programs that match your areas of interest and will make the best use of your investment.
With ICF, you get peace of mind knowing you made the right investments to meet your estate planning goals while supporting meaningful giving and inspired change.
A bequest is one of the simplest and most effective planned giving tools. With our help, you can include language in your will or charitable trust specifying a gift be made to family, friends or ICF as part of your estate plan. Bequests can be made in several ways, including:
Specific dollar amount or asset
A percentage of your estate
The balance or residue of your estate
A beneficiary designation of certain assets
