Planned Giving

You can leave a bequest or estate gift through planned giving which allows you to make an enduring gift to support Madison’s parks. You can choose to designate a gift to a favorite park; give to the playground improvement fund; the swimming scholarship fund; have a naming opportunity in the park once the gift is realized; an interest of your choice; or have more impact by allocating your gift to the Madison Parks areas of greatest need.

For more details, please contact us at
608-266-4339 or email us at sfranklin@supportmpf.org.

Some examples of planned gifts include:

Gifts in a Will or Trust

  • A bequest through your will or a gift from your trust allows you to support your charitable interests while retaining complete control of your assets during your lifetime.
  • We can accept cash, stock and other assets.  Bequests can be a fixed dollar amount or a percentage of the net estate.

Life Insurance

  • Life insurance is a simple way to leave a philanthropic mark.  You can name the Madison Parks Foundation as a beneficiary.

Retirement Plan Assets

  • For many people, retirement plan assets like IRAs, 401(k) or 403(b) may be your largest single asset. Naming the Madison Parks Foundation as a beneficiary of your retirement assets is a great way to make a lasting gift.

Since the Madison Parks Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, your planned gift may be entitled to a charitable income or estate tax deduction.  Your tax advisor can help you choose the best type of gift for your specific circumstances.
