Acacia Fraternity Foundation
There are many creative ways to give that have a tremendous impact on Acacia and, at the same time, return some positive benefits to the donor. You might find that silver lining in a planned gift. There are many ways to give, and many ways to structure a gift to meet both your specific philanthropic and financial goals.
Bequest - Just takes a simple designation in your will or trust and costs nothing during lifetime. They are easy and revocable if situation changes.
Increase Your Cash Flow: Gift Annuity - A simple agreement that can increase your cash flow from a gift that provides guaranteed fixed payments for life. Lifetime annuity payments, based on age may be two or three times higher than your cash return on low-earning securities or CDs.
Least Expensive Source of Cash: Life Insurance - Donate policy and deduct future premium payments, or just name the charity as policy beneficiary. Individuals typically pay less than $1 for $1 of coverage.
Most Popular with Advisors: Charitable Remainder Trust - Great tool for selling assets tax-free and receiving income for life; the remaining assets go to charity. It provides steady cash flow and can be more beneficial than keeping an asset or selling it outright.
Most Expensive for Kids: Retirement Assets - Retirement funds paid to your kids at your passing can get hit with income and estate taxes, but are tax-free to charity. Funds left to children may be hit with income and estate tax of 70% or more.
Greatly Reduce Estate Tax: Charitable Lead Trust - You greatly reduce or avoid estate tax on trust assets passing to family... if some trust income goes to charity for a few years. Trust provides generous estate and gift tax deductions for wealth transferred to family at a more mature age.
Most Possibilities: Family Business Stock - When the time comes to transfer or sell the business, there are tax and practical reasons for including a charity in the plan. Tax advisors can be very creative.
Deduct Now and Transfer Later: Donor Advised Fund - Works like a 'charitable bank account' - claim deduction now and decide later when charity will receive the funds. You can retain control and family influence over charitable dollars.
Big Potential with Leaders "Lifetime Bequest" (Gift Now + Estate Pledge) - Secures a current gift and increases potential for an even larger estate gift. A long-term pledge binding your estate can leverage donor recognition for these linked gifts.
In-Kind Rather than Cash
Real Estate - Great for making a gift and also transferring the burden of managing the property. It won't reduce your disposable funds.
