Planned Giving

Philanthropic planning can be as simple as including a bequest to The Community Foundation of NC East. You may leave a percentage share of your estate, specify the dollar amount, or designate the Foundation as a contingent beneficiary.

This type of planning encompasses much more than a simple bequest. With the goals of providing for your loved ones, reducing taxes, and remembering worthy causes, there are a variety of techniques available that have mutual benefit to you, your community, and your favorite charitable organizations, both now and into the future.
