Planned Giving

Gift planning integrates philanthropy into a donor’s overall financial, tax and estate planning to maximize benefits to the Wisconsin Pharmacy Foundation and to the donor. These are deferred gifts that are made in the present and received by the Foundation in the future, benefiting PSW and Wisconsin Pharmacy in the years to come. Some are straightforward, such as a bequest in a will. Others are more complex, providing current tax benefits as well as life income for the donor, a beneficiary or both.

How to Give

There are many charitable planned giving options available to you. For example, you can make a planned gift to Wisconsin Pharmacy Foundation as a beneficiary of your last will and testament, life insurance policy, or retirement plan.

You can also name Wisconsin Pharmacy Foundation as a beneficiary of a charitable trust. Your attorney or financial advisor can advise you of the various types of charitable trusts and assist you in establishing a trust that is tailored to your personal needs. Some of these giving strategies may have a greater tax benefit to you than others, so please consult with your attorney or financial advisor on which strategy would work best for you.
