Structured giving can have significantly more power than giving a single, lump-sum donation to charity.
For example, a once-off $1 million donation to a hospital may pay for a new wing to be built. However, $1 million dollars invested in a philanthropic trust or foundation will grow over time. With regular payments made from the Trust’s income, the hospital will likely receive millions of dollars over many years. The hospital will be able to use the funds for what it requires, at the time, year-after-year.
