Planned giving

Planned giving (gift planning or legacy giving) is a giving strategy for supporting a church or other nonprofit that enables philanthropic individuals to leave money or assets that they are unable to release until a later point.  A planned gift is any major gift made in lifetime or at death that is a part of a donor's overall financial or estate planning.
