Legacy Giving

A legacy gift is a gift you plan for today that will benefit Gilda’s Club Chicago far into the future, and may provide you with tax advantages. It can be as simple as making Gilda’s Club Chicago a beneficiary of a retirement account or life insurance policy, or including us in your trust or will. Legacy gifts also include gifts of appreciated securities and gifts from IRAs – an increasingly popular way to give for those over age 70.5. Talk to your attorney or financial advisor for ways to leave a lasting legacy.
