You have spent a lifetime building your legacy – your family, your career, your values. Thoughtful planning can help you extend that well-built legacy beyond your lifetime. 

With your estate plan, you can care for your family members and make a charitable impact you may never have imagined possible. You can even start during your lifetime and receive financial benefits.

With a planned gift, you can:

  • Address urgent needs in the community that arise now or in the future.
  • Permanently support a cause that is important to you, such as education or the environment.
  • Provide perpetual support for your favorite nonprofit.

The Philanthropy Team at the Community Foundation Tampa Bay will work with you and your legal and financial advisors to create the legacy plan that is right for you and your family.

NEW for 2024: Higher ACGA rates could mean more income for you.

Get Started
There are many planned gifts that won’t affect your existing financial resources, but will have a significant impact on the charitable organizations you care about. Give to causes that are important to you, while maintaining control and flexibility.
Make a Gift in Your Will or Trust

A gift provision in your will or revocable trust can direct a transfer of assets such as cash, securities, real estate, and/or business interests to Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, Inc.  for the benefit of charitable causes you want to support at the end of your life.

Gift Planning Tools

When determining the right gift option, it’s vital to first decide your most important personal and family goal. This could range from maximizing tax benefits to preserving assets for your heirs.
