Planned Giving

  • Income tax
  • Continued use of property for life
  • Avoid probate on real estate

Other planning giving options includes retirement plans, wills, and living trust. By using these options you can determine specific assets you would like to leave to Franciscan University. After your lifetime your estate can take a charitable deduction for the full amount of your bequest. Depending on the size of your estate, this can result in a substantial tax savings.
