Types of Donations
Deferred gifts are a great way to leave a legacy and support people who utilize Evant services. As you plan for retirement and determine beneficiaries for your estate, please keep the people we serve in mind. Please consult an attorney or professional advisor prior to allocating any deferred gifts to Evant.
Here are a few ways you can make a difference with deferred gifts through bequests, appreciated securities, real estate, and retirement accounts.
Bequests. A bequest is a gift left in a will. You can include a bequest provision in your will or set up a revocable trust. A bequest reduces the value of your estate for federal estate tax purposes and is usually exempt from state inheritance taxes.
Securities. Gifts of publicly-traded, appreciated securities such as stocks and bonds are also very valuable to Evant. By contributing all or a portion of your portfolio, tax penalties associated with cashing out the securities will be decreased.
Retirement Accounts. Another way you can give is by naming Evant as a beneficiary on your retirement accounts. By naming Evant as beneficiary of an IRA, 401(k), or 403(b), you can take withdrawals during your lifetime and alter the beneficiary, should your circumstances change.
Real Estate. Many types of real estate can be donated to a public charity, including undeveloped vacant land, homes and other residential property. A donor may give property that the donor currently owns or may donate the land by will when the owner dies.
Other Ways to Give
Donate Cash. Cash gifts for a one-time offering or a monthly donation.
Matching Gifts. You may be able to double your gift to Evant, if your employer has a matching gift program.
Chartiable Donations of goods or services. Also known as In-Kind donations are for goods needed like art work, carpet cleaners or steamers, or gift cards. Gift Cards can be used for special events and holiday gifts.
