Life income gifts such as trusts will be counted at their discounted present value. Gifts of life insurance policies for which C’mon is the owner and beneficiary will be counted at cash value. Bequest intentions will be recognized but not counted. C’mon can provide details about the many forms that a planned gift may take and the tax advantages associated with each.
