Bequests through your will—the most common form of a legacy gift
Specify a dollar amount, a piece of property, or a percentage or the residual of your estate. Consult with a qualified attorney who can review your goals in light of applicable federal and state laws, and ensure that your will accurately reflects your specific wishes.
You can pass your assets directly to an individual or organization outside of probate, simply by designating them as a beneficiary.
For example, you may name St. Andrew’s House as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy, pension, retirement fund, commercial annuity contract, bank account, or brokerage account. Talk with your attorney or financial planner about possible tax benefits from these arrangements.
Other Types of Planned Giving
Charitable Gift Annuities or Trusts: These provide you with current tax benefits, provide income to you during your lifetime, and then leave the remainder to the St. Andrew’s House. Qualified Charitable Contributions (QCD): These satisfy your retirement account’s Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), and can provide tax benefits. Other Gifts: There are easy ways to gift your stocks, ETFs, mutual funds, bonds—contact the Bishop’s Office at 206.325.4200.
