Giving through a BequestA bequest is the simplest way to make a gift to ABCS through your estate plan. It is a part of your will and with it you can specify a specific amount, percentage or residual amount of your estate that you would like to give to ABCS. You maintain control over your assets during your lifetime and they are only distributed after you pass away. Giving through a TrustA trust is an estate planning tool that provides more privacy and options than a will. With a trust, you can still make gifts to ABCS but you have more options in regards to the timing of when your gift is made and there are additional benefits you can consider if you would like to fund the trust with appreciated assets.
Creating a Beneficiary DesignationYou can give to ABCS by creating a beneficiary designation on your retirement accounts, bank accounts or even your life insurance policies. This form of gift occurs at the time of death when the assets in those accounts or policies are paid out to beneficiaries.
IRA RolloverThe IRA rollover is a creative way to leave a gift to ABCS if you are 70 ½ or older. If you are in this age bracket and have an IRA, you are required to make minimum distributions on a yearly basis from your IRA that are subject to taxes. Congress has now made the IRA Charitable Rollover Act a permanent law and you can transfer up to $100,000 to our organization tax free, and it satisfies your yearly required minimum distribution for the year.
