Not everyone wants to commit to making a gift in their wills or estates. Some prefer the increased flexibility that a beneficiary designation provides by using:
It only takes three simple steps to make this type of gift. Here's how to name the Transplants for Children as a beneficiary:
You want to leave money to Transplants for Children in your will. You also want the flexibility to change your will in the event that life circumstances change. You can do both.
In as little as one sentence you can complete your gift. This type of donation to Transplants for Children in your will or living trust helps ensure that we continue our mission for years to come.
If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit Transplants for Children and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 from your traditional IRA directly to a qualified charity such as ours without having to pay income taxes on the money.
This law no longer has an expiration date so you are free to make annual gifts to our organization this year and well into the future.
A donor advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to Transplants for Children and other charities.
You transfer cash or other assets to a tax-exempt sponsoring organization such as a public foundation. You can then recommend-but not direct-how much and how often money is granted. In addition, you avoid the cost and complexities of managing a private foundation.
In return, you qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction at the time you contribute to the account. This also allows for a centralized giving and record-keeping system in one location.
Transplants for Children does not offer a donor advised fund program, but does accept gifts from such funds for a variety of purposes.
