Thank you to the many donors who have purchased bricks in the past. Our park shoreline looks gorgeous but there's always room for more! GPSIF continues to sell commemorative bricks to enhance the municipal park walkway. For more information, contact the office at 313-881-6565 or email us by clicking here.

With a memorial or honorary gift, you recognize someone who has been important to you AND you help GPSIF provide community improvements that future generations will enjoy. For gifts made in Memory of, or In Honor of someone, please provide the name and address of the honoree's family for acknowledgement. The amount of the gift will not be shown in the acknowledgement unless you specifically request that we include it.

Contributions to the Endowment Fund represent an investment in the present and future enjoyment of our community, and substantially increases the ability of the Foundation Trustees to successfully support future improvements. Your contributions will help enhance completed projects, fund new projects or maintain existing projects.

A charitable bequest is one of the easiest ways to make a significant lasting gift to the community. A bequest to the Foundation can be easily made through a simple designation in a will or trust. A charitable bequest can dramatically reduce estate and inheritance taxes and may generate tax savings that can be passed to your heirs. Please contact your estate planner or financial advisor for details.

Gifts of life insurance enable donors to make a future major gift at a relatively modest cost. Donors may name the Foundation as the owner and beneficiary of existing policies that they no longer need. Or, donors may purchase new policies and name the GPSIF as the owner and beneficiary. Donors are entitled to a federal income tax deduction for the cash surrender value in the year the gift is made. 

Life Insurance

Retirement plan assets (such as IRAs) can make excellent charitable gifts. Qualified retirement plans enjoy favorable tax treatment before retirement but are severely taxed at the death of the plan participant. Estate tax and income tax can be avoided if the plan participant makes a gift to charity at the death by beneficiary designation. Contact a Financial Advisor for details.
