Other Ways to Help

Planned Giving

Making a charitable contribution is an important decision, and determining what gift is right for you is the first step in ensuring a satisfying giving experience. In addition to helping sustain and grow the NFXF, planned giving enables donors to arrange charitable contributions that maximize their philanthropic objectives while minimizing after-tax costs.
Donors can potentially enjoy some or all of the following benefits by giving to the NFXF:

  • Fulfill philanthropic goals
  • Reduce income tax through gift deduction
  • Avoid capital gain tax on gifts of long-term appreciated property
  • Retain a stream of payments for life to the donor and other beneficiaries
  • Increase disposable income
  • Eliminate federal estate tax on property passing to charity upon donor’s death
  • Reduce cost and time in estate settlement
