PLANNED GIVING

East Lake’s success has and always will be based on collaboration – with community residents, with public and private partners, and with donors like you. As you plan for the future, the East Lake Foundation invites you to join our Planned Giving Society. The Planned Giving Society recognizes and honors individuals and their families who include the East Lake Foundation in their estate plans.

A planned gift ensures a strong and healthy future for the residents of East Lake, while providing potential estate tax benefits to you and your family. Joining the Planned Giving Society not only ensures your family’s legacy, but this enduring act of generosity will also give East Lake families something to pass on to their next generation – better choices and the belief in their ability to build a better life.

Your Gift

The East Lake Foundation accepts a wide variety of planned gifts that allow you to make a lasting impact upon East Lake, while potentially providing you and your family with income and tax benefits. A planned gift to the Foundation’s Planned Giving Society may include:

  • A bequest of cash, stock or real estate.
  • A gift of life insurance or retirement plan.
  • A Charitable Lead Trust provides the Foundation income for a number of years before the committed assets are delivered to your heirs.

East Lake Foundation does not provide legal or tax advice. We encourage you to consult with your lawyer and tax advisor when considering any gift to the Foundation.
