A legacy to benefit you and the Friends

Bequests and other planned gifts can play an important role in the long-term financial stability of the Friends, helping to ensure the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad survives and thrives.

  • Cash gifts
  • Stock transfers
  • Bequests
  • Charitable gift annuities
  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Charitable lead trusts
  • Life insurance
  • Real estate

A planned gift can help you achieve the following objectives:

  • Bypass capital gains
  • Increase current income
  • Reduce current income taxes
  • Reduce federal estate taxes
  • Conserve future assets for your heirs

You may also make a gift to honor someone, in memory of someone, or in celebration of an event such as a birthday, anniversary, or achievement.
