Beneficiary Designation Gifts
If you are like most people, you probably will not use all of your assets during your lifetime. Donating part or all of your unused retirement, investment or bank accounts by way of a beneficiary designation form is an excellent way to make a gift to Father Joe's Villages as part of your estate plan. You may also use a beneficiary designation form to make a gift to our organization from your life insurance policy.
Future gifts from your retirement assets
Did you know that 40%-60% of your retirement assets may be taxed if you leave them to your heirs at your death? A smarter option is to leave your heirs assets that receive a step up in basis, such as real estate and stock, and give the retirement assets to Father Joe's Villages. As a charity, we are not taxed upon receiving an IRA or other retirement plan assets. You can use the "Make a Future Gift of Retirement Assets" tool to contact your retirement plan custodian and designate a future gift to Father Joe's Villages.
