By making a charitable gift through your estate, you are ensuring that the Hopkins Center for the Arts will continue to be a place where people of all ages can participate in the arts, learn, and connect with neighbors and friends. By using planned giving tools, you keep control of your assets during your lifetime while reducing the estate taxes your heirs will pay.
Common vehicles for planned giving include:
- BEQUESTS: Including the Hopkins Center for the Arts in your will is a simple way to create a lasting legacy that costs nothing during your lifetime and benefits generations to come.
- CHARITABLE GIFT ANNUITIES: If you wish to make a significant gift while receiving a stable stream of income for the remainder of your life, a charitable gift annuity may be the answer. In particular, it is the perfect way to turn low-income producing stock into a steady income.
- LIFE INSURANCE: Naming the Hopkins Center for the Arts as a beneficiary on an existing policy or transferring ownership on a policy you no longer need is an effective way of making a sizeable gift at little cost.
