Planned Giving

Because I said I would relies on charitable gifts to meet program needs and to support our future. There are a number of easy giving options from which you can choose to help – from naming because I said I would as a beneficiary in your will; to the donation of stocks or mutual funds. See planned giving options below:

BEQUEST

You can provide for the future of because I said I would by naming because I said I would as a beneficiary of your will or trust. By doing so your estate may save taxes.

LIFE INSURANCE OR RETIREMENT PLAN BENEFICIARY DESIGNATION

You can name because I said I would as a beneficiary of all or part of your IRA, 401(k), 403(b) or other retirement plan. You may also include because I said I would as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy.

GIFTS OF STOCKS OR MUTUAL FUNDS

You can donate stock and mutual funds to because I said I would. If you have held the stock for more than a year you can deduct the fair market value of the stock as a charitable contribution on your personal tax return as of the date of the gift. Also, if the stock has appreciated in value, you will avoid the capital gains tax that you would pay if you sold the stock and gave the resulting cash to the charity.
These transfers should be done without selling the stock, so please contact because I said I would to coordinate a broker to broker transfer.

CORPORATE MATCHING GIVING
