Plan so your generosity continues beyond your lifetime
Planned giving allows you to make a donation to Heifer that is mutually beneficial. It’s a gift that ensures good stewardship of your assets by increasing benefits for yourself and for your family members. It’s a gift that will help millions of families around the world reach lives of self-reliance and sustainability.
From naming Heifer in your will to making a charitable gift annuities or a charitable remainder trust, we offer several ways for you to give while securing your family’s financial future.
Wills and Estates
Provide resources to create extraordinary futures beyond your lifetime. Make a charitable gift through your will. With a bequest you’ll:
- Leave a legacy
- Remain in control of the funds or property during your lifetime
- Reduce estate taxes
- Help continue Heifer’s ongoing mission
Charitable Gift Annuities
Give while you receive. When you transfer property to us, we pay you a fixed income for life… a portion of which may even be tax-free.
Charitable Remainder Unitrusts
Do you have appreciated property and want to save on taxes while planning for retirement? A Charitable Remainder Unitrust can do that and provide a donation to Heifer International at the same time.
Built through charitable gifts, such as gifts of cash, property and stock, as well as funds from bequests, trusts and annuities, these gifts are invested, with the earnings providing annual support.
All planned gifts are made through the Heifer Foundation--a separate entity whose mission is to manage and grow an endowment to provide long-term support for Heifer International. Heifer Foundation staff are experts in creating a plan that meets your giving needs while providing for your current financial needs.
