Planned Gifts that Make the Most of Low Interest Rates

In the current environment of historically low interest rates, several planned gift opportunities to LightHouse for the Blind provide even greater income and tax advantages than they do at a time when the economy is growing more rapidly.

Three of these options—the retained life estate, the charitable gift annuity, and the charitable lead trust allow you to make meaningful gifts to the LightHouse and provide usable income for today’s daily expenses. And you have the immediate satisfaction of making a meaningful gift that benefits you now and the LightHouse later.

We’ve just published our new LightHouse for the Blind Planned Giving Guide. It describes these types of planned giving vehicles and others in detail, and how your gift will make the difference of lives of blind people of all ages for years to come.
