Your will is one of the most powerful and popular legal instruments to leave a planned gift. There are many planned giving options that allow you to make charitable gifts, continue to meet your income needs and take advantage of current tax incentives. There are several ways to leave a planned gift to DuPagePads.
- Bequest— You can provide a future gift to DuPagePads by including a bequest provision in your will to leave a specified amount from or a percentage of your estate.
- Gifts of Appreciated Securities— Shares of stock or mutual funds can be gifted to DuPagePads and sold without incurring taxes.
- Charitable Gift Annuity— The Gift that Gives Back Guaranteed Income— You can transfer cash or securities to DuPagePads, and DuPagePads will pay specified amounts over a designated period of time to specified individuals. The principal passes to DuPagePads when the contract ends.
- Charitable Remainder Trust— A Flexible Life Income Gift. You can transfer cash, securities or other appreciated property into a trust, and the trust makes annual payments to you or to beneficiaries you name. When the trust terminates, the remainder passes to DuPagePads.
- Life Insurance— You can transfer ownership of a life insurance policy to DuPagePads.
- IRA Beneficiary— DuPagePads can be designated as the beneficiary of your IRA.
