Planned Giving

Planned Giving

Leaving your legacy through a gift to Scouting may be one of the most important decisions you make in your lifetime.  As a donor to the Cradle of Liberty Council, you can use your giving to achieve personal goals, enhance your financial security, and help shape the future of Scouting. Planned giving includes several ways for you to include charitable giving in your total financial plan. Many donors and supporters of Scouting have chosen planned giving to show their interest in supporting Scouting beyond their lifetime while realizing some tax benefits today.

As with all financial decisions, a planned gift should be designed with care. A planned giving professional should work closely and confidentially with you to ensure that your gift achieves your individual goals, and expresses your personal vision.  Explore the many ways to give by visiting the BSA’s National Foundation website.
