Planned Giving



Planned giving refers to several specific gift types that can be funded with cash, equity, or property. Planned gifts, sometimes also called deferred gifts, are referred to as such because they require more planning, negotiation and counsel than many other gifts. Whether you use cash or other assets, the benefits of funding a planned gift can make this type of charitable giving very attractive to both the donor and charity.

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

There are many different types of planned gifts, including bequests, trusts, and contracts between a donor and a charity.

Hachiro Yuasa Society

The Hachiro Yuasa Society was formed to recognize those thoughtful graduates and friends who make an estate gift or other form of deferred gift that the Japan ICU Foundation will receive in the future. You can become a member of the Hachiro Yuasa Society by doing one or more of the following:

  • Make a bequest in your will to JICUF
  • Name JICUF as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan
  • Make a gift to JICUF that pays you income for life
  • Make a gift of a residence to JICUF while retaining the right to live there
  • Establish a charitable trust to benefit JICUF

As a member of the Hachiro Yuasa Society, your name will be listed in JICUF’s annual report. More importantly, you will join a long tradition of supporters whose commitment to ICU, like Dr. Yuasa, demonstrates a planned gift that lasts beyond a lifetime.
