Astara Programs that Help Spread the Light
The Astara Living Legacy Program
The Astara Living Legacy Program was established to recognize the desire of those committed to supporting Astara's work long into the future. This program blends philanthropic tax incentives provided by the United States government with your charitable intentions, offering opportunities to both give and receive through several avenues collectively known as planned giving.
Planned giving includes three general areas:
Remainder trusts, where an asset is donated to Astara during the donor's lifetime, but the donor continues to receive income, via dividends, from the asset for life.
Bequests, where the donor retains the use of the asset during their lifetime.
U.S. deductable outright gifts of tangible personal property, stocks, or other financial instruments, giving Astara immediate use of the asset.
Giving through the Astara Living Legacy Program
By using some of the formulas in planned giving, you may be able to make a larger gift than you thought possible. For some, this form of giving provides the only way to make a substantial contribution to Astara. It also allows one to be creative in making a gift that will enable Astara to continue its mission statement of promoting, developing, and elevating the spiritual consciousness and health of humankind.
Planned Giving Benefits
Depending on the planned giving vehicle you choose, the benefits include, but are not limited to:
the ability to create tax-sheltered income for yourself and/or others for life
the potential to preserve your capital and contribute its dividends
an opportunity to receive a substantial income tax savings from the value of the gift
a chance to bypass capital gains taxation
