Planned Giving and Estate Giving Options

LCF strongly encouarges you to meet with a professional advisor prior to executing a gift.

Special Situations

Unique Assets: LCF can devise a philanthropic plan that may include various gift assets, such as closely held stock (private or restricted stock), qualified or non-qualified stock options, or family limited partnership interests.

Unique Forms: LCF represents an excellent alternative to supporting organizations or private foundations. We also can provide customized administrative and grantmaking functions to existing supporting organizations or private foundations.

Unique For-Profit and Non-profit Collaborations: LCF can partner with corporations to help fulfill their charitable objectives.

We also encourage charities to consider using CREATE to house their endowment funds. We add value by leveraging investment and cost efficiencies while also providing comprehensive planned giving and endowment support.

By spending the investment interest only, donors can be assured that they are making a gift that will last. The benefits are endless.
