Bequests and charitable gift annuities
Note: The Alzheimer's Association strongly encourages donors to work with their attorneys and financial professionals to determine which type of planned gift may be most suitable for their individual situation. Chapter staff will be pleased to answer any questions you or your advisor may have.
Bequests - naming the Alzheimer's Association in your will
Your will is a document that tells your survivors how you would like your estate distributed after your death. One of the simplest and most effective planned gifts is a bequest, or a gift made by a clause in your will.
There are several types of bequests. A specific bequest gives a certain amount of money or a certain piece of property to a person or an organization, known as the beneficiary. A percentage bequest gives a certain percentage of the value of your entire estate to a beneficiary. A residual bequest is made when all other bequests and costs to the estate are satisfied. When you make a bequest to the Alzheimer's Association of Travis County, your estate may also have the benefit of a federal estate tax charitable deduction.
The following language can be taken to your professional counsel:
Charitable Gift Annuities
The Alzheimer's Association offers charitable gift annuities, which are simple contracts between a donor and a charity (such as the Alzheimer's Association), to pay the donor a fixed amount, usually quarterly, for the rest of his or her life, in exchange for an initial gift of $5,000 or more. Gift annuities are easy to establish and offer a tax deduction at the time of the initial gift. In addition, a portion of the lifetime payments made to the annuitant may be tax-free. Gift annuities may be established for one or two annuitants and may be funded with cash or appreciated stock.
Estate Planning for Those Concerned About Alzheimer's Disease
Ways to Make a Gift Through Your Estate Plan.
If you die without an estate plan, the state where you live will decide where your assets will go. The government will probably not distribute your assets the way you would have desired. Much of your estate may go to the government in taxes, and none will go to support the work of the Alzheimer's Association in fighting this debilitating disease.
