What is a planned gift?

A planned gift is a charitable donation that financially benefits both the donor and institution receiving the gift. Planned gifts include outright gifts, bequests, life insurance, retirement plans (IRA or 401(k)), and charitable trusts.

Bequests

Including Great River Regional Library in your will is an easy way to give back. With the help of an attorney, you may include a bequest for the library within your will. Sample language include:

  • I give to Great River Regional Library $ __________. This is an unrestricted gift and may be used to further the mission and programs of the Library.
  • I give to Great River Regional Library all (or ___ percent) of the residue of my estate. This is an unrestricted gift and may be used to further the mission and programs of the Library.
