We have taken a proactive approach to ensure that we can continue to provide our exceptional scouting program and meet the needs of young people and the community. To achieve this, the council has created an endowment fund that will help sustain the Scouting program for years to come. Estate planning is an excellent way to make a lasting contribution to Scouting and take advantage of favorable federal and state tax laws.
Through effective estate planning, you can enjoy the following benefits:
- Reduce income taxes, including capital gains taxes.
- Establish a stable income stream for yourself and others that can last a lifetime.
- Minimize transfer taxes, including gift and estate taxes.
By making a contribution to the Greater Tampa Bay Area Council’s endowment fund, you can leave a legacy that supports the development of young people and provides them with opportunities for growth and learning. Additionally, through estate planning, you can maximize the tax benefits of your contribution while ensuring that you and your loved ones are taken care of.
