As someone who has managed their finances responsibly, you have a variety of assets which could be used to help improve the lives of disabled and hearing impaired children.
Talking with your financial advisor and with the Development Director at Be An Angel can provide you with the best direction regarding your own assets and tailored giving.
Charitable Remainder Unitrust
By transferring stocks to a Charitable Remainder Unitrust, you can be impacting children’s lives.
You may receive higher annual dividends and be entitled to an income tax charitable deduction that can save you considerably on your taxes.
Be An Angel works with PhilanthroCorp to ensure that your legacy is carried on after your passing. PhilanthroCorp allows you to have the opportunity to work with experienced attorneys to bless your children and grandchildren as well as the charities which are near and dear to your heart. Resources such as the equity in your home, life insurance, and retirement plans should be responsibly stewarded after you leave this world. Building a lasting legacy through your estate gift makes it possible for the life-changing mission of Be An Angel to continue.
A trust is an excellent solution to many potential estate problems. You can include Be An Angel as the beneficiary of a relatively simple revocable trust or irrevocable trust. A charitable lead trust lets you provide a payout to Be An Angel during your lifetime (or a term of years) and preserve assets for other beneficiaries, such as your children or your grandchildren. Contact us today to discuss naming Be An Angel as the beneficiary of your trust.
Individual Retirement Fund (IRA)
By naming Be An Angel as beneficiary of your Individual Retirement Account (IRA), you can give Be An Angel a gift that is free of all income and estate taxes because of Be An Angel’s 501(c)3 status.
If you’ve reached the age (70 ½) where a minimum distribution is mandatory, but you don’t need those funds, you can directly transfer those funds to Be An Angel.
Workplace Giving: Paycheck Matching
Your gift to Be An Angel could be matched dollar for dollar by your employer! Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees, retirees and/or employees’ spouses.
