Foundation, with the donor retaining the privilege of using these
resources for the duration of his or her life. In some instances tax
advantages may be enjoyed each year through the life of the agreement.
IRA accounts offer ordinary tax-free savings opportunities and also a
practical means of supporting the Foundation. The Foundation may be
designated as a final beneficiary to receive any funds remaining after
an individual or beneficiaries no longer need them. This plan can be
created at the time an IRA is established, or in the case of an existing
IRA, the Foundation can be added as beneficiary.
Respecting the wishes of deceased loved ones, families often request
that memorials be made to the Foundation. Unlike many other gestures of
sympathy, a memorial gift to the Foundation serves others.
For some donors, a contribution of securities which have increased in value may have a special tax advantage.
