    Planned Giving

    Columbia Industries is very grateful for individual and corporate support.

    We work with individuals to assist them with their charitable giving opportunities via financial support, in-kind support or planned giving.  Columbia Industries has benefited from several donations of vehicles, real property, businesses, and various charitable remainder trusts and charitable annuity trusts.

    We would be happy to talk with you to help determine how you can help us now or in the future.  We are willing to work with your advisers and have relationships with local experts regarding charitable trust, wills and bequest and tax and estate planning.
