This type of charitable gift allows you to:
Types of planned giving.
You can begin planning at any age.
The most frequently made planned gifts are bequests, but gifts can also include donated assets such as stocks, real estate, art pieces, or business interests. There are several ways to support SFAI after your lifetime:
A bequest is the simplest type of planned gift. You may designate a specific dollar amount, percentage of your total estate, or a residual amount remaining after all specific bequests and expenses have been paid. Your bequest will also qualify for a charitable deduction.
Gifts may be made of land, buildings, artwork, residences, and commercial property.
Naming SFAI as beneficiary of retirement plans, life insurance policies, and transfer-on-death accounts allows you control of the funds during your life and provides a probate-free transfer of assets. This type of estate gift can lessen both income and estate taxes.
Life Income Gifts
A life income gift enables you to make a significant contribution while protecting, or improving, your personal financial situation. In exchange for the transfer of assets, you (or a designated beneficiary) will receive income for life or a term of years, an immediate income tax deduction, and the potential for reduced estate taxes.
You can transfer ownership of appreciated securities such as stocks, mutual fund shares, and bonds to SFAI.
