Guests and Friends of Harbin Hot springs have increasingly asked for information on how they might make planned gifts. Planned gifts are recognized both in the United States and in other countries as ways in which individuals may make significant charitable contributions that can also provide themselves and/or their heirs with significant tax and other financial benefits.

    • Trusts (Lead or Remainder)
    • Life Estate Gifts
    • Charitable Gift Annuities
  2. Charitable Gift Expectancies – Revocable designations through which the donor has yet to receive any tax benefit and through which the Harbin Hot Springs will benefit at a later date.  Such expectancies typically include:
