Helping Others through Your Will
Have you ever thought of how a bequest to the hospital would benefit your community?
The making of a will is vitally important to making sure you are distributing your estate according to your wishes. After providing for the needs of your loved ones, your may desire to benefit a charitable organization you have enjoyed supporting in the past or one that you believe fulfills your charitable wishes.
If you already have a will, your attorney will be happy to revise it with a simple amendment so that you may include a gift. In your will, gifts may be designated as a dollar amount, a specific property, a percentage of your estate, or what is left after your loved ones have been taken care of.
Gifts of Life Insurance
Please consider this easy, but often overlooked way to make a significant gift.
One of the easiest ways to make a significant gift is to name a charity as beneficiary of a life insurance policy no longer needed for is original purpose.
As you age, life insurance needs change. Children become self-sufficient and other investments may provide sufficient income and security. This may allow you the privilege of making a charity the beneficiary to receive all or a portion of the proceeds of a policy.
Another way would be to purchase a new policy, naming your preferred charity as beneficiary or a co-beneficiary.
Charitable Gift Annuities (CGA)
For more information, call the WCH Foundation office.
The charitable gift annuity is a wonderful gift tool that benefits both the donor and the charity. It allows the donor to make a significant gift while retaining lifetime income from the annuity.
The donor transfers the desired gift assets (such as stocks or bonds) to the Foundation. In return, a guaranteed payment is made to the donor and/or spouse for the length of their lifetime. It is an ideal choice for certain donors who enjoy the needed monthly income while knowing they have given a significant gift to their charity of choice.
