Planned Giving

Leave a legacy by making Four Rivers a part of your overall financial, tax and estate planning. Maximize the benefits of planning for you, your family and individuals served by Four Rivers.

Planned gifts such as donating a certain amount of money over a span of time, bequests and trusts allow you to help ensure Four Rivers will continue to provide critical services to generations of individuals with disabilities and other challenges while offering possible tax benefits. Depending on the asset given and the gift arrangement selected, planned gifts can have the following benefits:

  • Make a lasting difference to Four Rivers’ programs and individuals served
  • Avoid capital gains tax on gifts of depreciated property
  • Reduce total taxable estate
  • Fulfill philanthropic goals

Four Rivers’ Resource Development department is always available to assist you and your professional advisor. It is important all legal requirements be met so that your gift will benefit Four Rivers in the way you intend.

Sustaining Gift Member

A Sustaining Gift Member is someone who authorizes Four Rivers to continue their credit card or electronic funds transfer donations on a regular recurring basis. By choosing to support Four Rivers in this way, you provide a continual stream of support and eliminate the need for costly mailings. Individuals can become a Sustaining Gift Member with as little as $10 a month. If you wish to change your level of support, you need only complete another authorization form and return it to Four Rivers. If you wish to discontinue support, you need only contact us and we will discontinue the monthly credit card or Electronic Funds Transfer charges.

The benefit to the Sustaining Gift Member is the convenience and reliability of having your bank forward your monthly gift to Four Rivers. In addition, it puts your gift to work quickly and easily while allowing you to make a larger gift in small installments.

To become a Sustaining Gift Member, all you need to do is download, complete and mail back the “Sustaining Gift Authorization” form.
