Create a Lasting Legacy
Planned giving is an incredible way to make an impact. It allows many donors to leave a larger charitable gift than they thought possible, reduce their tax burden, and create a lasting positive impact for patients and families in need of hospice care and grief support in our community.
Easy Ways to Make a Difference
A bequest is one of the most common methods of leaving a planned gift. This is done through your will with the help of a legal advisor. You can give a set dollar amount, or percentage of your estate – see below for your sample language:
“I hereby give, devise, and bequeath __percent (%) of my total estate, determined as of the date of my death, to Capital Caring Health, a non-profit organization located in Falls Church, VA (Federal Tax ID: 54-1920770).”
Another way to make a planned gift is to designate all of part of your insurance policy, IRA, or retirement plan. These gifts are easy to put in place, and do not require updating your will. Simply name Capital Caring Health as a beneficiary of your policy or plan.
DONATING YOUR RMD
IRA holders age 72 or older can also choose to give now by donating your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). Donating your RMD is a qualified charitable donation (QCD) and will not be taxed up to $100,000. This is an excellent way to gain tax benefits while supporting causes you believe in.
