FOUR WAYS TO GIVE
Bequests are the cornerstone of most estate plans and among the easiest ways for donors to arrange a gift. Donors set up a bequest when they work with their attorneys or legal advisors to draft their wills and without requiring any technical expertise on your part. Your function is to encourage donors to remember you in their plans and importantly answer questions about how a potential bequest might be used.
Individuals with a retirement plan, whether through their employer or their own Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or 401(k)s, 403(b)s and pension plans, can select AJ as a beneficiary of the remaining balance. These gifts are arranged by donors contacting the administrator of their plans.
Financial Service Products
Your donors likely have certificates of deposit or other accounts at a bank or financial institution. Donors can select AJ as the beneficiary of these accounts through a payable-on-death provision. Your charity would only receive the remaining balance of the funds upon the donor’s death.
Your contribution goes directly to support the efforts of over 170 volunteers. As a registered 501 (C) 3 nonprofit corporation, your contribution is deductible to the full extent of the law. Donations are acknowledged with a letter.
