A "Planned Gift" may be any deferred or current charitable gift where the donor's objectives
and circumstances are considered in order to provide maximum benefit to both the donor and
your organization. Donors are becoming more interested in planned giving as a way to support
their favorite charities. Organizations that educate their donors about planned giving and
inform their donors of the organization's ability to accommodate planned gifts will benefit
from more and larger gifts. Planned gifts often exceed $100,000. Bar Harbor Trust Services
offers a program that will help you become more familiar with planned giving and help you
attract planned gifts. Our four-phase program is offered free of charge to existing clients.
