At some point in our lives, each of us will give some thought or have already given some thought to how we wish our assets to be distributed after our lifetime. There are any number of factors that will help each of us decide this important decision. Here at The Rescue House, we simply want to make you aware of the different ways you can make a legacy gift that will help drive our mission into the future.
One of the simplest ways to make a planned gift to The Rescue House is to make a specific bequest in your will or living trust. If you already have a living document (will or trust), your lawyer can easily add a codicil to include The Rescue House. An added benefit to this type of donation is that the value of your donation is deducted before the estate tax is calculated.
A gift of your retirement assets, such as IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax deferred plan is another excellent way to make a planned gift to The Rescue House. If you end up having retirement assets leftover from your lifetime, and your current beneficiary has not or may not survive you, then you are in a position to make a significant contribution to the overall mission of The Rescue House by making The Rescue House either your primary or contingency beneficiary of your plan.
Life Insurance and Annuity Contracts
Making The Rescue House a beneficiary on your life insurance or annuity contract is another wonderful way for you to make a significant contribution to our shared cause that does not impact your current lifestyle. If you are at a stage in your life where your current beneficiary has not or may not survive you, and you wish to make a lasting legacy gift to The Rescue House, please consider making our organization your primary or contingency beneficiary of your life insurance and annuity contracts.
