Planned Giving is a powerful philanthropic tool that can help maximize the personal benefits of charitable giving. Whether through lifetime gifting or end-of-life bequests, initiating Planned Giving as part of your estate plan helps to ensure that designated assets are distributed in ways that are meaningful to you.

The Colorado Women’s Education Foundation’s Planned Giving Program was established to assist those who want to gift to the Foundation through estate planning. In 2000, Carol Grever, a successful entrepreneur and major Foundation donor, announced the creation of a Charitable Remainder Trust for which the Foundation is the sole beneficiary. Other benefactors have indicated their intent that the Foundation will benefit from personal and/or family end-of-life bequests.

Before deciding to participate in a Planned Giving Program, the Foundation encourages you to consult with your estate and/or tax advisor.
