You can begin planning your legacy at any point in time. It is never too soon or too late to plan how you want to be remembered. Think about your legacy and what your contributions may mean to the field you loved all your life.
Current tax laws encourage you to help a charitable non-profit by donating cash as well as appreciated securities, bonds and real estate, life insurance, and a deferred gift in your will or codicil. Consult your financial advisor about the specifics of your situation and how they might translate into giving opportunities advantageous to you and SNAG.
The Society of North American Goldsmiths is a nonprofit public educational organization exempt from income, gift and estate taxes under the 501(c)(3) section of the Internal Revenue Code.
