Planned giving (U.S.)

Your planned gift enables MCC to envision, work toward and plan for a better world.

Planned giving basics

The information contained in this brochure is
meant as a guide only. Please consult a profes-
sional financial planner or legal adviser and
foundation representative before entering into
any binding gift arrangement.


Getting started
Ask a financial planner or legal adviser to help
you align your resources of cash and other assets
with your personal values. The best plans begin
with your own deeply held beliefs or priorities,
which advisers can then match with your resourc-
es and the needs of the organization you wish to
partner with. Most Americans consider giving
based on their annual income; however, the true
giving ability of many people is based more on
their accumulated wealth than on their income.
An experienced fnancial counselor will help you
determine how much and when to give to maxi-
mize your lifetime earnings and tax benefits.
If gifts require ongoing administration MCC uses
the services of a foundation.
