Over half of Historic Columbus’s annual budget comes from membership dues and donations generated through the annual fund. However, those two areas of giving are not the only way to support historic preservation in our community. One way to ensure Historic Columbus is viable into the future is through planned giving.
There are many ways to make a planned gift that can benefit you and your loved ones while providing meaningful support to the Historic Columbus Foundation. Established in your will, an estate gift, or bequest, may be for a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, property or stocks. A lifelong income gift provides income to Historic Columbus for life while the donor receives an income tax deduction and reduces his/her estate tax.
Other options for planned giving include: designating Historic Columbus as a life insurance or IRS beneficiary; purchasing a gift annuity and receive lifetime payments; giving your residence or other property, while retaining the right to live there for the rest of your life; donating property or selling it at a bargain price to Historic Columbus.
