best known way to be sure your wishes are carried out. You
actually can save extra estate settlement expenses for your family if you have a valid Will - but most of us don't
Since Planned Gifts most often need the services of an attorney or financial
professional to prepare, and most of these gifts are tied to the donor's death and estate, it's difficult to bring

this method to benefit your estate and Silverton Together.
Donations by Planned Gifts can be made
Using one of the Planned Giving options listed above may
positively impact your current taxes, reduce potential capital gains or inheritance taxes. In structuring all
Planned Gifts it is important for you to consult your legal/financial advisor on its deductibility or impact on
your particular financial situation. To ensure that your gift reverts to Silverton Together, we suggest the

to inheritance taxes.
- Charitable Remainder or Lead
Trusts: You can use cash or appreciated stocks or property to
fund Trusts that will provide a designated income source for you and/or your loved ones. Trusts can be
structured for either an immediate or deferred pay out to you or your beneficiaries over a number of years.

- Charitable Bequest in your
Will: You may name Silverton Together to receive a bequest
through your Will. This positively affects the inheritance taxes on your estate. You can choose to state a
specific gift amount, provide a percentage, or assign the remainder of your estate. Your valid Will should be
reviewed and updated as needed, especially if your family or financial situations change.
