More Ways to Give

Planned Giving

Whatever your stage in life, planned giving can make an impact now while ensuring that Public Counsel stands as a force for justice for generations to come. Some planned gifts can go into effect immediately, some after your lifetime, and many offer tax savings. We’re here to help.

Planned Gifts

  • We invite you to join our Douglas Society by designating Public Counsel as a beneficiary of your estate plan. Planned giving can be as simple as naming Public Counsel as a beneficiary on an insurance policy or IRA, including us in a will or trust, or structured in other creative ways. You may also consider a bequest of cash securities or real estate to support us into the future.

Deferred Gifts

  • Have you already made a plan for a deferred gift to Public Counsel? Please let us know if you have included Public Counsel in your plans so we can ensure your gift is used as you intend and thank you properly!

IRA Rollover

  • The IRA Charitable Rollover provision, signed into law in 2015, allows individuals who have reached the age of 70 ½ to donate up to $100,000 to charitable organizations directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA), without treating the distribution as taxable income.
    • Individuals considering using this vehicle to make their charitable donation to Public Counsel should consult with their financial and tax professionals to ensure that they are in compliance with all provisions in the law.
