Planned Giving

A gift to Cranbrook as part of a thoughtful, comprehensive estate plan provides a way to complete a lifetime of giving or to make a significant gift that was not possible during one's lifetime. 

The easiest and most common way to do this is by naming Cranbrook or a division of Cranbrook as a beneficiary in your will or trust. Bequests are revocable, giving you the flexibility to adjust your gift if your circumstances change. You may direct that your bequest be used for a specific purpose, such as planned preservation.

Cranbrook can provide confidential calculations on the potential benefits of various planned gifts for review by you and your financial advisor upon request.
