Legacy Giving

Leave a Legacy, Designate a Gift Today

Plan your legacy now and impact generations to come with your generosity. However you choose to designate your legacy gift, planned giving is rewarding, powerful, and ensures good stewardship of your assets for your family.

Wills & Estates

Make a charitable gift through your will by designating a portion or percentage of your estate to CILC. With a bequest, you’ll remain in control of your funds or property during your lifetime while reducing estate taxes.

IRA / Retirement Account

Retirement accounts have become the resource of choice for individuals who wish to give before or after death. A retirement plan can be a tax-efficient way of including CILC in your estate plan, because charities named as beneficiaries do not pay income or estate taxes on the distribution.

Donating Real Estate or Personal Property

When you donate real estate or personal property you receive an income tax deduction equal to the appraised fair market value of the property, with no capital gains tax. You also remove a large taxable asset from your estate.


Your charitable gift will be invested, and earnings can be disbursed annually to CILC to support operating costs.
