The Golden Clef Circle – Estate Gifts. You can support the future work of MIM by including us in your estate planning. In doing so, you will join a very special group we call the Golden Clef Circle.Most of us are not able, during our lifetimes, to make major gifts to the causes we love. An estate gift enables you to make a difference in the future. Bequeathing even a modest percentage of your estate can easily have a major impact on our programs. You can include MIM in your will or Family Trust, or you can even establish a Charitable Trust.Please consider a legacy gift to MIM in your estate plan. Together we can ensure that our exceptional programs will live on for many years.Contact us to learn more.

Legacy giving is easier than you may think.

A provision in your will

Any dollar amount, percentage, or the residue of your estate can be specified. You can easily continue your yearly donation in perpetuity; simply designate fifteen times your annual gift amount to be placed in the Endowment. Each year, the interest generated will continue your gift, plus protect the principal from inflation.

A provision in your family trust

Just like in a will, gifts can be unrestricted, placed in the endowment funds, or made in memory of a loved one or honored friend.

Establish a charitable trust

You may be able to increase your current income; redirect capital gains, estate and probate taxes according to your desires; make larger charitable gifts; and perhaps even increase your estate’s net value.

Remember when planning your estate to consult a professional advisor. We can help you find a professional to help in your planning, if needed, or you could contact the Gold Country Estate Planning Council.
