Everyone has a unique family and financial situation.  Your endowment or planned gift can be designed to match your personal circumstance through a variety of options.

Your planned charitable gift can provide:

  • Unrestricted funds, giving NIF the resources and flexibility to address issues, unanticipated needs and opportunities now and in the future.
  • Restricted or designated funds, aligning your gift with your specific area of interest or organization, programs or needs that you feel are most important.

Every option provides unique tax and estate planning advantages and is an expression of your lifelong care and involvement.
