Have you ever wondered how you can leave a gift to Saint Joseph's College in your will or estate plan? Perhaps you may have thought or asked:
“I want to leave a gift to Saint Joseph’s College through my will. How exactly do I do that? What language do I use?”
"I would like to use my mandatory distribution from my retirement account this year to make a gift. Can I do that?
See IRA Gifts.
“I heard that I could make a legacy gift to Saint Joseph’s College and receive annual income through an annuity. How does that work?”
See Charitable Gift Annuities and Deferred Gift Annuities.
“I am updating my estate plan and I am creating a trust. What do I need to do?”
See Living Trusts and Charitable Remainder Trusts.
“I don’t have a large ‘estate’. Can I still make a gift of life insurance or part of my retirement account?”
See Gifts of Life Insurance and Gifts of Retirement Assets.
“I have summer camp in Maine and I might like to donate it to the college. How exactly do I do that?”
See Gifts of Real Estate.
There are many different ways to support Saint Joseph’s College. Not only does a planned gift allow you to make a legacy gift to the college and influence the lives of students for many years to come, but you often receive the added bonus of receiving tax savings as well.
