Workplace Giving & Matching Gifts
Many companies provide a matching gift program that doubles the impact of their employees’ philanthropic interests. Talk to your HR department to see if you can participate.
The number one way most donors make a legacy gift is through a bequest. You may make a bequest or gift to the Ascension St. Vincent’s Foundation through your estate by including a provision in your will or living trust.
You may bequeath:
- specific dollar amount
- specific asset, such as stock or property
- percentage of your estate
- residue of your estate after payments to others
- proceeds from life insurance or retirement plans
- assets of a bank certificate of deposit or of mutual funds.
Planning Giving Gift Annuity
You can provide a gift of cash or marketable securities to the Ascension St. Vincent’s Foundation. In exchange, charitable gift annuities provide a fixed rate of return to the donor or other beneficiaries during their life.
- Real Estate: A gift of real estate, such as your home, vacation property, ranch, or farm can be designated as a future gift, while you can retain the right to live there for during your lifetime.
- Life Insurance: You may contribute all or a portion of a new or existing life insurance policy, naming the Ascension St. Vincent’s Foundation as owner and beneficiary. You would continue to make all premium payments which are tax deductible.
- Retirement Plan Assets: Retirement plans may be gifted to the Ascension St. Vincent’s Foundation in several ways. These include Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA), 401(K), 403(b), and defined contribution plans.
- Annual or Major Gifts: IRA Charitable Rollover provision allows for individuals who have reached age 70 1/2 to donate up to $100,000 to charitable organizations directly from their IRA without treating the distribution as taxable income.
