Contributions from individuals, corporations, and foundations enable the American Geosciences Institute to respond to needs in the geoscience community with programs that meet those needs. Planned gifts from individuals can help provide programs of great benefit to the geoscience community while bringing significant financial advantages to the donor.

Making provisions for the American Geosciences Institute in estate plans, gifts of securities, and personal property, for example, creates ways to benefit individuals with tax savings and reduced estate-settlement costs.

Gifts to the AGI Foundation include:

  • Cash
  • Securities
  • Life Insurance
  • Real Estate
  • Life Income
  • Bequests
  • Tangible Personal Property

The Foundation has an alliance with Woodway Financial Advisors, an experienced and successful trust company that administers the Foundation’s planned giving programs. Woodway can provide advice and information on the many vehicles available for planned giving and the requirements to establish such a program. They can also provide information to help individuals or their representatives maximize charitable gifts as well as information on the investment management of assets in trust.

Trust officers can review and discuss charitable income tax deductions that are available, the ability to generate current income, and the necessity to reduce estate size fro eventual estate-tax purposes. Finally, as a trust company, they can offer information on the investment management of assets in trust as well as provide fiduciary responsibility associated with the various planned giving vehicles.
