Planned Giving Program of Preservation Austin

Preservation Austin's Planned Giving program helps to create a secure financial future which allows us to focus more time and attention on preserving our shared heritage and less on fundraising obligations.

We hope you will name Preservation Austin as a beneficiary of your estate plan and be recognized as a charter member of the Legacy Preservation Partners. This esteemed group of donors pledge planned gifts of $5,000 or more to support our work.

Making a planned gift to PA bequeaths the legacy of Austin’s unique and cherished character to future generations. Your support will ensure our ability to maintain constant vigilance over major threats to Austin's heritage. A gift will empower us to prevail on future challenges, as we have on maintaining tax abatements for City Landmark properties, the adoption of a Local Historic Districts program, strengthening Austin’s Preservation Plan, and the ongoing effort to preserve the Capitol View Corridors.

The current and future work of Preservation Austin depends upon your goodwill. To that end, there are a myriad of planned giving options from which you can choose – from naming us as a beneficiary in your will to a gift of stock. Planned gifts are popular because they can provide valuable tax benefits and/or income for life.

Potential Benefits of Planned Gifts

  • Increase current income for the donor or others
  • Reduce the donor's income tax
  • Avoid capital gains tax
  • Pass assets to family at a reduced tax cost
  • Make significant donations to charity

To make a gift or receive more details, please contact Executive Director Kate Singleton at 474-5198 ext. 7728.
