Your financial planner, lawyer or advisor can explain the details and tax benefits of these and other planned giving arrangements. Often, the donor receives the tax benefit now and the contribution is paid later when their estate is probated. These types of gifts make a HUGE difference in helping SDI and we’re always grateful for them!  E-mail Sheri if you have a questions about creating your legacy.
