A thoughtful way to ensure that your support continues after you are gone is by taking a few simple steps when preparing your estate plan. You can maximize the amount that will go to charity and minimize the amount paid for taxes while knowing that you have earned thanks of those who will be helped by your caring generosity. A gift in your will, called a bequest, could be the right option for you. Bequests allow you to have an impact on the future without parting with your assets today. And, your generosity will continue long after you are gone.
We provide an opportunity for people of all financial means to contribute in a meaningful way. Depending on your philanthropic priorities and your financial situation, you can talk with your attorney or financial advisor to determine which strategy and type of gift best suit your charitable goals. Give to a cause you care about most while gaining maximum tax benefits under state and federal law. Schedule a time to discuss ways you can maximize your gift.
You have flexibility. A bequest lets you balance your philanthropic goals with your concerns about the future. Because you are not actually parting with assets today, you don't need to worry that you might later need those assets to live on. Plus you can change your mind at any time.
You can be sensible in your commitment. Your gift can be made as a percentage of your estate, allow you to benefit Turner Syndrome Foundation and loved ones in relative proportion.
Contact your lawyer to add a charitable gift in your will. Decide what amount or percentage you want to give. Work with your lawyer to update your existing will with a simple codicil or to begin developing your estate plan. Notify us of your intention so we can thank you for your future gift, recognize you (we will honor your preferences regarding anonymity) and keep you informed of our ongoing activities.
