Planned Giving and Estate Gifts

Will and Living Trusts

There is no better way to leave a legacy in our community and touch many deserving lives, than through planned giving. Please consider College of Eastern Idaho when planning your estate.

Any part, percentage or component of an estate or trust assets can be left to the College of Eastern Idaho Foundation.

It is important that the appropriate naming language be used in the will or trust, such as: “I hereby leave (amount, percentage, asset or remainder) to College of Eastern Idaho Foundation, Inc., an Idaho nonprofit corporation with principal offices in Idaho Falls, Idaho, for the (insert specific program, fund, or endowment or for the general benefit of a specific campus).”

While wills and bequests are great ways to give and help reduce estate and inheritance taxes, they provide no immediate income tax advantages. More sophisticated giving agreements can provide immediate income tax benefits, provide consistent income for the life of the donor, or others designated by the donor, reduce estate and inheritance taxes, and provide significant support for the programs and activities of College of Eastern Idaho.

It just takes a little planning to create substantial tax savings and provide a lasting legacy for a donor and their family.

As with any planned or estate gift, contact your financial planner for more information about giving to the CEI Foundation and to discuss the many tax advantages of these giving options.

Your donations make an impact on the lives of many students. Read or watch below to find out how. Thank you!
