Financial support from the Foundation’s endowment plays an important role in maintaining world-class botanical gardens, sculpture collections, art and educational programs which have become the hallmark of the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.
There are Seven Ways to Give:
2 Gift of Reserved Life Estate
A gift of land results in tax savings and avoidance of capital gains, and the donor reserves the right to use the property for life.
3 Charitable Gift Annuity
A charitable gift annuity is part gift and part purchase of an annuity, and results in an income tax deduction.
4 Charitable Remainder Trust
A charitable remainder trust is one way of deferred giving with attractive income tax savings.
5 Gift by Bequest
A bequest is one of the preferred ways to leave a significant gift to the Foundation without making an immediate gift, and qualifies for estate tax savings.
6 Gift of Appreciated Securities
A gift of an appreciated asset to the Foundation can serve as attractive savings to the donor with "double" tax savings.
7 Wills or Estate Plans
A provision in the donor's will or estate plan for a gift to the Foundation.
