You Can Make a Difference - Forever!
We invite you to consider a planned gift to TED Center. Planned gifts allow you to make a huge difference in the lives of entrepreneurs for years to come. Some planned gifts allow you to realize income and tax-saving benefits while helping small business owners in our community. This is a wonderful win-win situation.
Determining what gift is right for you is just as important as making the gift. There are many ways to make a planned gift that can help you enhance your future financial well-being while providing a meaningful charitable gift. The best plan for you will balance your wishes, your family’s needs, and your charitable interests in your estate and financial plans.
Bequests, gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts and beneficiary designations of life insurance policies, retirement plans and IRA’s all constitute planned gifts that can be made to permanently provide TED Center’s with resources to achieve its community building efforts.
The TED Center honors every planned gift donor with membership in the Legacy Society. We invite you to become a member of the Legacy Society, created exclusively to honor and recognize people who have helped to continue our lifesaving work through a gift to the TED Center in their wills, trusts or estate plans. As a TED Center Legacy Society member, you’ll receive a certificate of appreciation to serve as a reminder to others of your support of our mission. Your gift can be recognized publicly, unless you prefer to give anonymously. The society also provides information and assistance to donors considering a planned gift. When you join the Legacy Society, you demonstrate your commitment to the humanitarian mission of the TED Center and help ensure the long-term strength of the organization. The TED Center Legacy Fund
