  • Planned Gifts

    Planned gifts allow you to benefit KCD while also letting you save on taxes, increase your income, and pass more of your estate on to your heirs.

    Planned gifts can also be truly transformational. KCD’s planned giving society is named for Benjamin G. Robertson Sr., whose will established KCD as the beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust. This trust has already distributed over $1 million to our permanent endowment and will generate millions more in the years to come.
    If you would like to learn more about the Robertson Planned Giving Society, please contact Gentry Easley.
