The Philadelphia Folksong Society is pleased to announce a relationship with the Philadelphia Foundation (www.PhilaFound.org) to establish a Planned Giving Program to insure the long-term success of our organization.
The term Planned Giving describes a substantial gift to the Philadelphia Folksong Society that involves financial or estate planning. This kind of thoughtful contribution is central to the long-term vitality of the Philadelphia Folksong Society. Planned gifts often are larger donations that result in more favorable tax benefits to the donor.
Planned Gifts Include:
Bequests and Securities - The Philadelphia Folksong Society Fund is named to receive either, a stated dollar amount or a percentage of a donors IRA, 401K or the remainder of the estate.
Life Insurance - You name the Philadelphia Folksong Society Fund as beneficiary of a policy or you give a fully paid policy to the organization of your choice. Tax benefits ensue.
Charitable Gift Annuities - A donor makes a one-time tax deductible gift in the form of an irrevocable agreement between the donor and the Philadelphia Folksong Society Fund. The Philadelphia Foundation, or a foundation you designate, invests and manages this gift and the donor receives a fixed annuity for life. Upon death, the remainder goes to the organization’s endowment f und created to support the work of the organization.
Charitable Remainder Trusts - A gift of cash or equities creates an irrevocable trust, invested and managed by The Philadelphia Foundation or the one you designate. The donor receives fixed or fluctuating income payments for life. Upon the donor’s death, the Philadelphia Folksong Society Fund receives the remainder of the trust.
Charitable Lead Trusts - Similar to a Charitable Remainder Trust except that the Philadelphia Folksong Society receives income for a certain number of years. Ultimately the remainder is paid to beneficiaries named by you.
