Planned Giving

There are special opportunities to support Delray Beach Center for the Arts through a variety of planned giving programs.  Please feel free to contact our President/CEO to discuss any of these options.  Planned giving is the most thoughtful way to support your cultural center, and we can tailor your gift to provide a legacy for you and Delray Beach Center for the Arts.

Bequests
One of the most frequently used giving opportunities is with a bequest through a will or a trust.  It allows you to make a substantial gift to Delray Beach Center for the Arts without taking any current assets from you, the donor.  The gift is tax deductible for Federal estate tax purposes and can greatly reduce or eliminate your Federal estate tax requirements.

Life Insurance
A gift of life insurance is a great way to support Delray Beach Center for the Arts at a nominal cost. There are several scenarios that would benefit younger and older donors alike, which may also provide substantial tax benefits.

Charitable Remainder Trust
This gift benefits the donor now, so it provides income to the donor or named beneficiaries during their lifetime.  After death, the trust assets are transferred to Old School Square.

Charitable Gift Annuity
This gift provides a simple contractual agreement between the donor and Delray Beach Center for the Arts.  The annuity provides a fixed payment each year for the life of the beneficiary.  The annuity offers quite a few tax benefits for the donor.

Charitable Lead Trusts
This opportunity allows the donor to contribute assets to a trust for a specific
period of time.  With this type of gift, Delray Beach Center for the Arts would receive income from the trust as a gift.  The assets are returned to the donor when the trust terminates.  It reduces Federal estate taxes when transferring property to heirs.

Retirement Plans and IRA Designations
Considering this option can greatly reduce income and estate taxes for your heirs.  Tax burdens can be as high as 70% of the total fund unless you consider naming a charitable remainder trust as one of the beneficiaries of the assets.
