Life Insurance
Consider assigning GLCF as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy, donating a policy to GLCF, or purchasing a new life insurance policy and naming the GLCF as the owner and beneficiary. 

You may establish a fund or contribute to an existing fund through a simple bequest in your Last Will and Testament. You may give a percentage of your estate, a specific dollar amount, or the residue of your estate.

Charitable Gift Annuity
This technique could allow you to receive a current charitable income tax deduction and retain an income for life.

Charitable Remainder Trust
You can establish this type of trust with potential current tax benefits while retaining income payments for yourself or other beneficiaries. The Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation will receive the residuary amount upon your death and will use these proceeds to establish a named fund according to your directive.

Charitable Lead Trust
This form of trust allows you to contribute annual payments to the Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation over a specified period of time to be used in establishing a named fund according to your directions. This form of trust is appropriate for substantial gifts and could have tax benefits for your estate while providing payments to The Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation.

Private Foundation Transfer
The demands of administering and making grants can become burdensome and costly. Assets of your private foundation may be transferred to the GLCF, and a fund in the same name is established.

Our Gift Acceptance Policy is available upon request.
