Giving Through Life Insurance
Life Insurance offers a simple and private way for you to contribute toward the mission of KidsPeace. It can be as simple as naming KidsPeace as a beneficiary to your policy. In order to have available a charitable deduction, the ownership of the policy would have to be changed to KidsPeace Corporation. Annual contributions that can cover the cost of the policy may qualify as a charitable deduction.
Planned Giving can create opportunities for increased income and added tax savings. These benefits can be applied toward purchasing life insurance intended to help replace a gift for your heirs. With proper estate planning, the life insurance can be separated from your estate.
Giving Through Real Estate
Great opportunities exist through gifts of real estate that benefit you and help KidsPeace children. A gift could include a personal residence, vacation home, farm or other property, which has appreciated in value. If held for more than one year, current market value may be used to help maximize your tax benefits. Each potential gift of real estate is reviewed by KidsPeace to make sure that both parties have addressed questions concerning liability and marketability issues.
Your appraiser would establish the market value of your gift (IRS form 8283 must be signed by KidsPeace and your appraiser).
A gift of real estate can also help increase your income through the use of a Charitable Remainder Trust.
Due to unique circumstances that may be associated with the real estate gift, KidsPeace asks that you contact us prior to the finalization of any plans.
Giving Through Retirement Plans
An individual retirement account can be a great way to provide for your future and assuring that a future exists for the children of KidsPeace. Your retirement account (IRA) may expose your individual heirs to an unnecessary federal income tax liability. Instead of a charitable bequest, consider making these distributions through your IRA. This will preserve more of your estate for family and friends.
Giving Through Wills
Remember KidsPeace in your will and become a founding member of the James & Annie Wiley Society
James and Annie Wiley believed in children. In memory of his late wife, Captain James Wiley built a new home for KidsPeace’s needy children more than a century ago. In their memory, KidsPeace has established the James & Annie Wiley Society. By including KidsPeace in your will, you will become a member of the James & Annie Wiley Society and join our family of caring people who also believe in helping children.
For more than 130 years, KidsPeace has opened its doors to thousands of children in need – from abused, neglected, and abandoned children, to confused young men and women who simply need direction in their lives.
Through the generosity of others, KidsPeace has been able to provide these children with safety, education, peace and hope for a better future.
Many of our friends care deeply about the special needs of the children at KidsPeace and have thoughtfully made provisions for them in their estate planning. By becoming a member of the James & Annie Wiley Society, you will ensure that KidsPeace will continue to provide help to those kids who need it most.
