Planned Giving

Planned giving allows you to make a great difference in the lives of patients and families, while taking advantage of unique tax savings and/or income benefits.

Following are the most common types of planned gifts.These are simply an overview of your options, and are not intended to constitute tax, accounting or legal advice. Donors should consult with their own professional advisors regarding a planned gift.

Bequest

A bequest through a will or living trust does not reduce your current income, yet enables you to provide substantial future support for a cause you care about. You may specify that Pikes Peak Hospice Foundation receives:

A specific dollar amount
A percentage of your estate
Certain assets, such as real estate
A remainder of your estate after everyone else is provided for

 

Charitable Trusts

A Charitable Remainder Trust is a special tax exempt trust to which you can give appreciated stock or real estate. The trust then provides you with an income stream for life, and upon your death, all assets remaining in the trust pass directly to Pikes Peak Hospice Foundation. You also bypass all capital gains taxes on the appreciated property, and further receive a current charitable income tax deduction.

 

Life Insurance

A gift of life insurance enables you to make a substantial future gift to Pikes Peak Hospice Foundation without financial impact during your lifetime. You can donate a policy you already own that no longer serves its original purpose, a policy you buy to specifically benefit Pikes Peak Hospice Foundation, or a policy in which you name Pikes Peak Hospice Foundation as a contingent beneficiary.

 

Retirement Plan Assets

Retirement plan assets are different from most other assets a person owns. At death, most retirement plans are subject to an estate tax and income tax. Because of the income tax levied on most retirement plan assets when they are transferred, those assets are ideal to fund a charitable gift at death.

 

 

What Our Families Say

What you all do is amazing.  Thank you for all your help, support and guidance for my mother and family.  It was such a gift and a blessing to be with my mom and take care of her and to have her at home with my daughter and I.  We will never forget your kindness.  Thank you! ~ Patient's family

The services my husband and I received during his last stages of life were invaluable to us.  His primary wish at the end was to be at home.  I was very afraid that I couldn't grant that wish, but with the help of Pikes Peak Hospice he was able to be at home, where he was comfortable, until the very end.  I am also truly thankful for the grief counseling that you provided to me. ~ Patient's wife

Thank you for all your assistance during this time and for the care of my mother.  There are not enough compliments to give for the support, knowledge, bedside manner, courtesy and kindness. ~ Patient's daughter
