through your Will or Retirement Assets
Planned giving is when an individual makes a donation, during their lifetime or at death, as part of a financial or estate plan. Whether it is through a Will, Retirement assets (IRA, 401K, etc.), or Property, individuals at all income levels can make a meaningful gift to the Abington Educational Foundation through a planned gift.
Planned gifts use estate and tax planning techniques to provide for charity and other heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor's estate.
