The CAPC encourages everyone to think about the future. First, if you do not have an estate plan in place, talk to a trusted advisor so that your wishes can be known and carried out. Second, remember your community when you create or amend your will or when you design your estate plan.
Nebraskans are among the most generous people in the nation. We give generously to our churches and charities all through our lives. However, far too few of us have made a plan to continue our charitable giving beyond our lifetime. If each of us included our community and its organizations in just a small way within our estate plan, our children and generations to follow would have the financial resources to build the community of our dreams.
You have the power to nurture, shape and secure the future of our community by supporting the endowments of our Columbus area nonprofit programs or the Columbus Area Community Foundation Fund. Your gift today or your planned gift for a day to come, will transform our area for generations hereafter. You can give with:
- Gifts of cash
- Gifts of appreciated assets
- Gifts of life insurance
- Gifts by will or by trust
- Gifts that provide income (charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust)
- Gifts of commodities
If you would like more information about planning a gift for any local nonprofit organization, contact your attorney or financial advisor or any of the member organizations in the Columbus Area Philanthropy Council.
