…Leave A Legacy
Our Future is in Your Hands
It all started with Arthur and Phoebe Pack’s legacy gift. Their legacy gift and other planned gifts to the National Ghost Ranch Foundation have sustained the mission and beauty of Ghost Ranch. The incredible legacy left by previous donors has enabled Ghost Ranch to become what it is today. The future of Ghost Ranch is in the hands of people that wish to leave a legacy of generosity for future generations.
We invite you to plant a seed today to ensure the ongoing viability of Ghost Ranch. By making a planned gift, you join the Chimney Rock Society which is a faithful group of Ghost Ranch supporters who have included Ghost Ranch in their estate plans. We invite you to review the information on this website and consult with your financial advisor or contact us for more information.
Your Planned Giving Options
Listed below on this page are all the ways you can use planned giving to leave a legacy.
Cash is often the quickest and easiest gift for supporting our mission, and often it provides the greatest deduction.
Among the simplest and most generous ways to give.
Charitable Remainder Trust
An irrevocable gift of assets into a charitable trust that provides you a fixed or variable income for life or for a set term.
Charitable Lead Trust
Distribute funds to our organization for multiple years before passing them on to your loved ones at little or no tax.
Pooled Income Fund
Join a type of charitable mutual fund that provides you income throughout your life. After your lifetime, the remainder funds our mission.
Giving appreciated securities might help you minimize your tax burden or make a larger contribution.
Do you have real estate that you are not using now or might consider as a gift later?
Do you have prized assets – like a collection, historic artifacts, boat or plane?
IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution
A giving opportunity for those over 70 1/2. Federal legislation allows you to give from your IRA directly to a public charity.
Your legacy for future generations.
A gift of retirement assets may be worth significantly more if you donate it to our mission than if you pass it to your heirs.
If life insurance’s original purposes have been achieved, consider re-employing it to power our mission.
Account Beneficiary Designation
Consider strengthening our mission by designating us as an account beneficiary recipient.
