7. Lifetime Gift Planning
You may include PAL of Cape Cod in your lifetime charitable giving plans through a bequest, a charitable gift annuity, insurance policy, charitable trust, or other planned giving vehicles. Because each donor has unique charitable giving plans and tax laws change frequently, we suggest that you call the office to begin a confidential conversation. Here are a few brief examples of planned giving options that may have either immediate or long term tax benefits to you and/or your loved ones. There are several options available. We advise you to consult your financial planner or attorney to discuss options that best suit your objectives and the needs of your family or heirs.
Bequest: A bequest may be the easiest and most cost effective way to make a gift by including PAL Youth
Center in your will. You may decide on a specific amount (specific bequest), a percentage of your estate
(residuary bequest), or make a bequest based on other variables (contigent bequest).
Charitable Gift Annuity: A charitable gift annuity contract with PAL Youth Center has immediate tax
advantages for you and pays you a guaranteed fixed amount annually, semi-annually or quarterly.
Charitable Remainder and Other Trusts: You may create a trust that pays a fixed percentage of income, has
immediate tax advantages, and may benefit PAL, you and your heirs. There are several choices to consider,
depending on your present situation and charitable intentions, which we are happy to discuss with you.
Life Insurance: You may donate a life insurance policy and name PAL of Cape Cod Youth Center as the
beneficiary. Depending on the arrangement, this may offer current and possible future tax deductions.
Property or Real Estate: Acceptance of property or real estate is contingent upon an appraisal and discussion
with legal counsel.

IRAs or other retirement benefit plans, after your lifetime, you may be able to avoid hefty taxation for your
