You can help ensure the future of The Carle by making a planned gift. Our relationship with our donors is a top priority for us. We can work with you and your financial advisor to help determine the type of gift that will best help you meet your personal financial goals. Every gift makes a difference!

Most people think of planned gifts as including charitable organizations in wills. That is one wonderful way to make a difference, but there are many ways to make a planned gift. You can benefit The Carle now, while getting tax benefits and other advantages.

Examples of planned gifts include

  • Gifts of Real Estate
  • Appreciated Stock
  • Life Insurance or Retirement Plan Beneficiary
  • Life Income Plans: Charitable Remainder Trusts, Gift Annuities, Pooled Income Fund
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • Gifts of Art
