Adding a gift for charity to your will or retirement plan is a simple act with impressive consequences.
This is major philanthropy almost anyone can do.
Planned gifts offer creative, flexible strategies for your estate and charitable planning.
Here are some of the ways you can give:
Wills or Bequests
After providing for heirs, a donor can specify that some or all of the remaining assets be given to the Frankie Lemmon School, thereby achieving a lasting purpose and reducing the taxable purpose of an estate.
Suggested language: “I give, devise, and bequeath [the following property, $__, or % or my estate] to the Frankie Lemmon School.
Retirement Plan Assets
Assets held in qualified retirement plans or individual retirement accounts (IRAs) may be contributed to charity. The donor may name the Frankie Lemmon School as the designated beneficiary of retirement account assets upon his/her death or the death of family beneficiaries.
The Frankie Lemmon School may be named as the owner and beneficiary of a previously existing or new life insurance policy. The donor receives an immediate tax deduction which is generally equal to the policy’s cash surrender value. The donor may make ongoing tax-deductible gifts to ensure continuation of premium payments.
Securities or Real Estates
Gifts of appreciated securities and real property may provide important tax advantages to donors who have held assets for more than one year. The full fair market value of such gifts may be deductible as a charitable contribution. In the case of restricted or closely held stock, real estate or other unusual assets, the proposed gift may require an appraisal and review by the Frankie Lemmon School counsel and approval of the Frankie Lemmon School Board of Directors.
A donor may wish to make a contribution to the fund but also receive an income interest. Certain charitable trusts may deliver important advantages in financial and estate planning and also enable charitable gifts to the fund.
