Planned gifts are often thought of as leaving a legacy that benefits the donor and the donor's family, but also future generations because of the University of Idaho’s promise and ability to improve lives in Idaho, the Northwest and beyond. Gifts are funded with cash, equity and/or property.
Gifts are a long-term partnership between donors and the University of Idaho, providing valuable tax benefits. Some of the potential benefits of planned gifts include:
- Reduction in donor's income tax
- Avoidance of capital gains tax
- Passing assets to family members at a reduced tax rate
- Enormous benefit to the University of Idaho – its programs, scholarship and research efforts
Planned gifts can be made using many different kinds of assets, including bequests, trusts, gift annuities and more. Most planned gifts are made with cash or appreciated marketable securities. However, depending on the donor's particular circumstances, gifts are often made using qualified retirement account assets, real estate, insurance policies, and even artwork or business interests.
