LAF Launches Planned Giving Website

LAF is pleased to provide our supporters with information on creative ways to invest in the work of the Foundation. Through planned giving, you, your loved ones, and LAF can all benefit.

LAF’s new planned giving website outlines opportunities to ensure that a livable planet is part of your legacy through this very special and important form of financial support. The website presents information and financially prudent options for making gifts of cash or other assets. For example, did you know that you can easily support LAF through gifts that pay you back?

In addition to providing this information, LAF is honored to recognize our planned giving donors through the LAF Legacy Society. Members of the LAF Legacy Society have expressed their commitment to our mission by naming LAF as the beneficiary of a planned gift. Such gifts might include a bequest, appreciated securities, gifts of real estate, gifts of life insurance and/or charitable income gifts, such as charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder unitrusts, charitable remainder annuity trusts. These Legacy Society members hope you will join them in supporting LAF through a planned gift. Planned gifts of all types and size are recognized in the LAF Legacy Society.

Planning your estate and legacy for future generations, including your charitable interests, takes careful evaluation. Consulting with the appropriate professionals can assist you. Discussing your charitable intentions with LAF and your financial advisors can lead to a much better result than going it alone and will ensure that your gift is used just as you wish.

Please let us know if you have already included the Landscape Architecture Foundation in your estate plan or if you are considering doing so. We would love to hear from you and answer any questions you might have. Development Manager Matt Alcide can be reached at or 202-331-7070 x13.

LAF sincerely appreciates your generosity, and we thank you for considering this special form of giving.

The planned giving website is intended to provide general gift planning information. The Landscape Architecture Foundation is not qualified to provide specific legal, tax or investment advice, and the website should not be looked to or relied upon as a source for such advice. Consult with your own legal and financial advisors before making any gift.
