What Planned Giving Is

It’s not always possible to make a sizeable donation immediately, even when the donor in question is passionate about helping New Mexico’s blind children. However, with planned giving, money can be earmarked for specific charities and those charities can count on that amount of money at some point in the future.

The most common method of planned giving is a bequest of property or funds through an individual’s final will. However, there are trusts, donor managed investment accounts, pooled income funds and more. Each method of planned giving allows the charity foundation to have an expected amount of money to work with, as well as allows donors to plan out their donations.

Why Planned Giving Helps

The NMSBVIF provides the New Mexico School for the Blind and Visually Impaired with fund necessary to support different programs/initiatives such as outreach programs, low vision clinics, technology for public lending libraries, therapy programs and equipment and much more. NMSBVI is committed to providing the tools that blind and visually impaired children need to succeed at no cost to families.

Donations to the NMSBVIF are necessary to supplement the land grant provided by the State of New Mexico. Planned giving can provide the school with the funding needed to plan on improvements to campus facilities, available equipment and needs as they appear.
