As one of the highest-taxed assets for many people, charitable gifts from an IRA make an excellent tax-planning tool. Even though Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) from a traditional IRA do not start until age 73, you can begin making Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) up to $100,000 at 70 ½.

Giving Later

While you complete your planned giving journey, you may be asked for the Community Foundation’s EIN number (our Employer Identification Number assigned by the IRS). This is used to ensure your gift makes it to us without added hassle.

EIN: 23-7024262

Estate Planning

At the Community Foundation, we can accept a wide variety of giving options that can be included in your estate. Our experienced team can work with you to guide you through the process.

Options include:

  • Include a Gift in a Will or Trust (Sample Bequest Language)
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
Retirement Plan Assets

Retirement plan assets are subject to both estate tax and income tax. By designating a portion or all of the proceeds of their retirement assets to establish or designate a fund at the Community Foundation, you can reduce the potential tax burden these can cause for your heirs.

Life Insurance

A gift of a life insurance policy allows you to make a charitable gift without a significant outlay of cash.

Retained Life Estate Gifts

You can donate a personal residence, vacation home or farm to a fund at the Community Foundation while retaining the right to live there for the remainder of your life or a specified period of time. This allows you to receive an income tax deduction and simplifies the administration of your estate.
