Tomorrow’s results are often created by today’s dreamers. Many people dream of a way to help nonprofits they care about grow well into the future. Some will find that a good way to accomplish that is through Planned Giving – also called “Legacy Giving.”

Here is a brief list of the “seeds” you could plant today so that someone can later enjoy the shade of a fully grown tree:

  • Name CECEF as a beneficiary in you will. You can make a gift of a specific dollar amount, specific property, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder after distributions to other beneficiaries. In doing so you will leave a legacy that lives well beyond your lifetime, yet you will continue to preserve and enjoy the assets you might need while still living.
  • Name CECEF as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy.
  • Name CECEF as a beneficiary of your retirement plan.
  • Make a gift of real estate. 
  • Make a gift of stock.
