All donors of planned gifts to the Chicago Urban League are providing lasting benefits that will be felt among Chicago’s African American communities for generations to come.
Planned gifts include:
· Gifts of securities of stock that you’ve had for more than one year
· Charitable bequests to the Chicago Urban League through a will or living trusts
· Naming the Chicago Urban League as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan
These gifts help sustain the Chicago Urban League’s work and helps donors create a permanent legacy. In addition, the value of a planned gift may include tax benefits and possibly some return of income. Your lawyer, accountant or financial advisor can provide further information on the benefits of planned giving.
