Give to the Future. Create a Legacy.

Consider giving a legacy of philanthropic support by giving a planned gift to Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp -- an organization close to your heart. Your gift can help ensure the future health of the organization.

Planned gifts offer you the opportunity to support Blue Lake in a meaningful way without giving a large outright gift. Planned gifts also offer substantial tax savings especially on appreciated properties and securities. Additionally, a planned gift can reduce income tax, avoid capital gains tax,and allows part of the estate to avoid the probate process.

Depending on the type of planned gift,there can be other benefits such as: planning for the financial needs of a spouse or loved one, providing inheritances for your heirs at a reduced tax cost, diversifying investment portfolio, receiving income from residence, etc.
There are planned giving options for every donor:

  • Donating Appreciated Property or Stock
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Charitable Annuity Unitrusts
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • Wills and Trusts

Please contact our Vice President for Development Dave Myers at dmyers@bluelake.org.  We would be pleased to provide you, your attorney, your accountant, or your tax advisor general information.  Contact your professional tax advisor to learn how planned giving options relate to your individual circumstances.  Thank you for your interest and kind support of Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp.
