Why Planned Giving?
Planned giving provides security and benefits to our donors and the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado. Many planned giving options provide financial benefits to the donor that far exceeds the value of the actual contribution. The Internal Revenue Service provides generous incentives for charitable gifts made through estate planning. Some of these gifts can provide lifetime income to the donor (or others) while generating charitable deductions against taxes on ordinary income and capital gains.
Most Popular Planned Gifts
Gifts from Your Will or Trust
You can make a gift that costs nothing during your lifetime.

Gifts of Retirement Assets
Gifts of assets in qualified retirement accounts include an IRA, 401(k) and 403(b). When assets are contributed to BIAC, we would receive 100% of each dollar donated as funds would not be subject to any income tax upon withdrawal.
