Benefits of a Planned Gift
A bequest can be made in several ways:
There are many financial assets you might currently own that could be utilized as part of your planned giving opportunity. The three that are most commonly recognized as legacy gifts are real estate, retirement accounts and life insurance.
Retirement Account Beneficiary
Name Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (Tax ID 88-0339754) as a beneficiary of your Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Due to potential tax benefits, it is recommended you speak with your tax advisor or financial advisor to help you navigate the opportunities.
When the original purpose for a life insurance policy no longer applies, such as educating children who are now grown or providing financial security for a spouse, your policy can become a powerful and simple way to support those living in poverty. There are numerous ways to potentially maximize an aging insurance policy or change the beneficiary. Due to potential tax implications, it is advised you speak with your tax advisor or financial advisor to help you navigate the process.
There are many ways to use real estate as part of your legacy/gifting strategy. Because there are many estate and tax benefits available, it is strongly recommended you work with your estate attorney, tax advisor, or financial advisor to help you find the best solution(s) for these gifts to maximize your gifting program.
Regardless of whatever means you wish to utilize as part of your planned giving strategy, please know that your gift will be stewarded faithfully to benefit those in our community living in poverty.
We sincerely thank you for supporting Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada’s life-saving work. If you have questions, please call (775) 322-7073, ex. 220.
