All matching gifts are credited to the donor’s annual giving total for the current year. To find out if your company will match gifts to The L.O.T. Initiative, contact your human resources department.

Gifts-in-Kind: A gift-in-kind is a gift of personal property that is charitably gifted to The Leaders of Tomorrow Initiative. Gifts-in-kind, such as books, equipment, real estate, vehicles, and artwork can all qualify donors for charitable gift credit. Gifts-in-kind must be properly appraised through the donor’s effort.

Stock Transfer/E-Trade: Gifts of appreciated securities are a great way to transmit assets to The Leaders of Tomorrow Initiative as charitable contributions.

Planned Gifts: While most gifts come in the form of current support (cash, checks, etc.), some of the friends of The Leaders of Tomorrow Initiative have found that they can make a larger impact by engaging in a planned gift to The L.O.T. Initiative. Planned giving allows donors to leave a legacy for the “Next generation of Society’s Leaders” that will last well into the future. Some examples of planned giving are:

•    Bequests
•    Retirement Plans
•    Endowments
•    Retained Life Estate
•    Charitable Gift Annuities
•    Life Insurance

Planned gifts may also reduce or eliminate income or estate taxes, based on advantageous treatment provided under state and federal laws for charitable giving.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts: Gifts of any type may be made in honor of, or in memory of, a specific individual. The Leaders of Tomorrow Initiative notifies the honoree or relative regarding all gifts made in this way.
