Planned Giving


Achieving true positive social change is a long-term proposition.

As an engaged and thoughtful individual,
your values are an integral part of the legacy you leave. How do you plan to make a difference in the world, today – and tomorrow?
If you are looking for a flexible way to ensure that your principles and priorities are honored far into the future, Lakota Language Consortium provides a planned giving option that leaves your legacy in reliable and experienced hands.
Planned Giving partner donors, estate and tax planning professionals, and our Planned Giving staff to create a gift today that will benefit Lakota Language Consortium in the future. A donor usually makes a contribution from his or her assets or estate rather than current income, and can receive current income and tax benefits.

LLC currently offers a Charitable Gift Annuity, which is an agreement between you and Lakota Language Consortium. In exchange for your irrevocable gift, Lakota Language Consortium pays a fixed dollar amount during your life and/or the life of a designated loved one. The amount you receive is determined by the size of your gift, your age and the age of your beneficiary. Your income is guaranteed, regardless of market fluctuation. A major portion of your income is a tax-exempt return of principal and the income may be deferred until a later time as part of your retirement plan. Plus, you get the personal satisfaction from making a gift that will benefit you today and support the survival of languages tomorrow
