Financial Donations Planned Giving It is more often the
case that we wish to help but have no idea the many ways that we can benefit our
communities and charitable programs financially or otherwise.
With Works of Life you can be assured that your gift will benefit those
in need and help the Charities and charitable programs we support, enhance these
programs, and substantially increase resources of many charitable causes needed
to support our communities.
There are Many Ways to Help
The following is just a brief summary of the many ways you can help.
DONATIONS of CASH OVER $500.00
If you plan to make a contribution of cash, stocks and bonds, or other
significant assets or would like to include Works of Life in your estate, we
request that you call us at your convenience.
CERTIFICATES AND BONDS
Works of Life accepts the donation of stocks and bonds on a common basis.
A gift to Works of Life is a very satisfying way to recognize the celebration of
a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion - particularly for those that
"have everything". Upon receipt of your donation, we'll send a card to your
friend or relative acknowledging your gift on their behalf, and provide you with
a receipt for tax purposes.
Consider honoring the memory of a friend or relative by making a contribution to
Works of Life in the form of a memorial gift. More and more individuals ask that
friends and relatives make a contribution to a charitable organization such as
Works of Life that the deceased has supported during his or her lifetime instead
of sending flowers. Examples of memorial gifts are endless - many organizations
can attribute buildings, equipment, endowment funds, and a multitude of services
to gifts made in memory of loved ones. We will be glad to assist you in choosing
an appropriate commemoration for our gift in honor of someone special to you.
With your attorney, you revise your will or add an amendment to make a gift of a
dollar amount, specific property, a percentage of your estate, or what is left
after your beneficiaries have been cared for.
If you have established a revocable living trust to pass your property to loved
ones while minimizing probate costs, you can also provide that at the
termination of your trust a portion of the assets in the trust be used for
charitable purposes that you designate.
This allows you to have income from your property for life or for a specified
period, but your income will increase or decrease with the value of your assets.
You determine the set percentage to go to the charity at the time the unitrust
is set up.
This transfers the specified assets to a trust that pays income to a charity for
a specified number of years. At the end of the trust, the assets are returned to
you or your beneficiaries.
This allows you to make a gift of your home to a charitable organization now but
retain the security of knowing you may live there as long as you wish. There are
also annual tax benefits to this arrangement. You continue to take care of the
property, pay the taxes, and receive any income it generates. When you are
deceased, the property legally becomes the responsibility of the charity and
does not pass through your estate.
A simple way to make a significant gift in the future is to name a charitable
beneficiary to receive all or a portion of the proceeds of a policy no longer
needed for its original purpose. Another way is to purchase a new policy naming
the charity as a beneficiary or co-beneficiary.
REMAINDER ANNUITY TRUST
This allows you to retain a set amount of income from your property for life or
for a specified period. Your funds are held separately and invested for payment
of a fixed and regular income for you. When the trust ends, whatever remains in
the trust is distributed for the charitable purposes you specify.
Sound financial planning may allow you to include charitable giving in your long-range plans without sacrificing your economic security. With the assistance of your financial planner, tax advisor, and Works of Life, your charitable gift may enable you to:
