There are two types of deferred gifts.
1. Estate Gifts
2. Life Income Gifts
Estate gifts are usually the largest gifts individuals
will ever make. They may consist of hundreds or millions
of dollars. Like all other gifts they may be "unrestricted"
for use where need is greatest, or "restricted"
to a particular program. Estate gifts allow for an individual
to continue impacting the agency for future generations.
Life Income Gifts
Life Income Gifts are gifts that give back to you.
When an individual makes a gift of cash, securities, and/or
real estate to Peter & Paul Community Services, the
right to retain and receive income from those assets remains
in place while the individual is living. Typically a spouse
or other beneficiary in the gift contract will receive life
income should you die before them. At your death, or the
death of the last beneficiary, Peter & Paul Community
Services would receive the remaining principal.
