4. Build Our Endowment through Planned Giving
Planned giving is a way to make a charitable gift of estate assets to a nonprofit organization – a gift that requires consideration and planning in light of your overall estate plan. Planned giving can allow you to make a future commitment to the Madison Trust for Historic Preservation without losing access to your assets in the present. Ultimately, planned giving can provide you with opportunities to make the most of your assets, both now and in the future, while also minimizing your estate’s tax burden.
The best option for planned giving to the Madison Trust is to make contributions to our endowment fund, manged by the Madison Community Foundation. Planned giving may be done is several ways through a variety of vehicles. We can work with you and the Madison Community Foundation to devise a plan that works for you.
4. Make Gifts of Stock
Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for more than one year. Making a gift of securities can help our organization while realizing important benefits for yourself. The Madison Trust has established an account at Robert W. Baird & Co. which donors can use to process gifts of stock. To learn more contact the Madison Trust at 608-843-6060 or email@example.com
