This information is not intended to substitute for advice from professional advisors. Before making a deferred gift it is recommended that you consult a lawyer or other tax or estate planning advisor.

The type of gift you make will determine if you are able to increase your annual income, enjoy an income tax deduction (which varies based on your age and type of gift), avoid capital gains on appreciated assets, and/or reduce estate and gift taxes.
