Gift Planning

Gift Planning can have a profound impact on Chimes and the individuals we serve. Gift Planning can also be incredibly rewarding for the donor that chooses to employ them in his/her estate plan. It is a misconception that only “rich people” need to think about gift planning. Everyone has the potential to make an impact through gift planning by coordinating their philanthropic desires together with their overall financial and estate plan.

Whether you include Chimes as a beneficiary of your estate through your will or trust, or whether you establish an income producing gift and include Chimes as an income beneficiary (Charitable Lead Trust) or a remainder beneficiary (Charitable Remainder Trust), or whether you choose to make a gift of stock, or some other negotiable asset—life insurance policy, real property, etc.—gift planning can provide both the donor and Chimes significant financial benefits.
