Planned Giving

Planned gifts can be made now or deferred to a later time. Some enable you to support the Institute, receive tax benefits, and sustain your current lifestyle. Such gifts include bequests through a will, retirement plan assets, and charitable trusts.

In 2002, the Institute established the Legacy Alliance to honor the inspiring generosity and vision of donors who have made planned gifts. Planned gifts play a crucial role in the progress and continuing success of St. Louis Psychoanalytic Institute.

The thoughtful process of arranging a planned gift to the Institute focuses your philanthropic goals and maximizes your tax-savings and estate-planning benefits. Planned gifts are simple and affordable opportunities to make a lasting impact on mental health in the St. Louis community.

We are very grateful to the following members of the Legacy Alliance:

Restricted Gifts

If you wish to restrict your gift, we ask that you add the following language to your will to ensure that we are able to pursue the opportunities of evolving priorities:

“If at some time, in the judgment of the Board of Directors of the St. Louis Psychoanalytic Institute, it is no longer practical to use the income or principal of this bequest for the purposes intended, the Board may use the income or principal for whatever it deems necessary and most closely in accord with the intent described herein.”
