What is Legacy Giving?

Legacy giving, also known as planned giving or bequest giving, refers to a type of charitable giving in which individuals make provisions in their wills or estate plans to leave a portion of their assets or estate to a charitable organization. Legacy giving allows individuals to continue supporting organizations even after their lifetime.

Legacy gifts can come in various forms, including:

  • Bequests: A bequest is a gift made to a nonprofit organization as part of a donor's will. This gift can be a specific amount or a percentage of the estate.
  • Beneficiary: Naming an organization as a beneficiary of assets, such as real estate, retirement plan, life insurance policy, or trust.

Designating a bequest to Iris Global, or adding Iris Global as a beneficiary, is one of the simplest ways to stop for the one for generations to come. This giving option provides ever-changing flexibility as your will or trust can be modified at any time.
