Estate Gifts Overview

You, too, can leave a legacy. Estate gifts, no matter the size, have the power to change lives for generations to come.  All of us know that who we are and what we value lives on in the hearts and minds of those we encounter along the way.  You and your family, while also providing support to SEE International, can make a world of difference to those who suffer from blindness.

Benefits

A planned estate gift can benefit you, as well as SEE International, if you are looking for any of the following:

  • Guaranteed and increased income for life from low-yielding, highly appreciated securities
  • A tax deduction this year and retirement income for future years
  • A way to create pension income for a longtime family employee or financial assistance to a relative
  • Strategies to preserving the value of assets you pass on to your heirs
  • The feeling that comes from making a significant charitable gift
