  • Bequests and Planned Giving

    Bequests
    Bequests are fully deductible from estate taxes for the amount of a cash bequest or the market value of other assets donated. The gift may consist of a share of the estate or it can be outright or in a trust. You can make a bequest for a designated purpose, or it can be unrestricted.

    Trusts
    A trust is a planned gift that can be designed to benefit both you and the Imagine! Foundation. Along with an immediate income tax charitable deduction, you can assure an income for yourself for life. After that, we are allowed to use the remaining funds for our programs and services. There are several types of trusts. To know which vehicle would be best for you, we recommend that you consult with appropriate legal and financial counsel.

    Gifts of Real Estate, Life Insurance, and Endowed Funds
     Gifts of real estate, life insurance, and endowed funds are accepted within the policies approved by the Imagine! Foundation’s Board of Directors. Please contact Executive Director Patti Micklin at 303-926-6443 or by email for current information concerning these gifting vehicles.

  • Employer Gift Matching

    With an employer match of an employee gift, your donation to Imagine! could be doubled or tripled. Employer matching is a simple process that usually involves completing a form from your personnel department and including it with your contribution to Imagine!. Then, we’ll take care of the rest!

    Check with your employer to find out if they have a matching gift program or to inquire about their policy on matching gifts. Many companies also match gifts from spouses and retired employees. ( Note: If you’ve already made a contribution to Imagine! and are within the time limit set by your company, you can still send us the forms and have your contribution matched.)
