At ASSETS every day we see the building blocks of an equitable economy where EVERYONE has the opportunity to thrive. Crucial building blocks include Businesses, Employees, and Customers. And, in any building project, the most critical block of all is the cornerstone. Your support is the cornerstone of this work and we can’t grow this equitable economy without you.
Your donation – of any amount – will help ASSETS use inclusive business models and innovative capital deployment to sustainably and effectively address poverty and inequality in Lancaster.
Planned & Legacy Giving
At ASSETS, your support is vital to the success of our mission. In addition to direct giving, you can support us through planned giving. ASSETS has partnered with Everence* to provide charitable services to help you explore a variety of planned giving options. Through gift planning, you can provide future support for ASSETS while also giving you and your loved ones financial flexibility, potential tax benefits and even income for life. For more information, contact Tina Campbell, Director of Development at firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-393-6089, ext 223. You also may contact Nikki Shingle at Nikki.email@example.com or 717-653-6662.
Through a bequest plan, you can designate ASSETS as the beneficiary of assets by will, trust or other instrument.
Charitable gift annuities:
A gift annuity is a great way to help ASSETS while also securing your future, with guaranteed payments for life.
Charitable remainder trusts:
A charitable remainder trust is an ideal way of turn your assets (like real estate and securities) into a charitable gift without losing much of your capital gains to taxes - and support ASSETS at the same time.
IRAs and tax-deferred accounts:
If you have a tax-deferred account, such as a traditional IRA (individual retirement account), you can donate it to charity upon your death and help your estate avoid paying substantial taxes that may be due.
Farmers can donate commodities like grain or livestock instead of cash to ASSETS, while also reducing taxes.
Gifts of stock:
You can turn your investments into cash without losing a large portion of your capital gains to taxes by donating all or a portion of your stock to ASSETS.
Gifts of real estate:
Giving a charitable gift of real estate is an option for owners of farmland, commercial or residential rental property, or vacant investment land.
Life insurance is a practical and affordable way to donate more than you may have though possible.
