gift from your ira

Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)

Making a Qualified Charitable Distribution from your Individual Retirement Account is a tax-smart way to give. If you are age 70½ or older, you may transfer up to $100,000 annually directly from your IRA to charity. If you are 72 or older, this transfer can be used to satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). By not realizing the taxable income, you avoid paying taxes on the distribution.

Beneficiary Designation

Designating A New Leaf as a primary or contingent beneficiary of a percentage of your IRA is an easy way to leave a significant gift and may help to reduce the tax burden on your heirs. Some IRA account administrators allow you to update your beneficiary designations online. You can change beneficiaries in the future if your circumstances change.

gift of real estate

Do you own appreciated property such as a residence or vacation home, commercial property, farmland, ranch, or undeveloped land that you are thinking of selling? Giving real estate is a very smart way to make a major impact.

By giving all or a portion of the property to A New Leaf, you may avoid capital gains taxes and receive a deduction for the fair market value of the property as determined by an independent appraisal. You may even continue using or living on the property as a retained life estate for a term of years or for your lifetime.

Please contact us if you are considering a gift of real estate to A New Leaf, to ensure in advance that we can accept your gift.

gift of life insurance

Perhaps you purchased a life insurance policy to protect your family, but now your children are grown, financially independent, and no longer need this protection. A gift of life insurance is an easy way to make a charitable impact.

Beneficiary Designation

You can designate A New Leaf as a primary or contingent beneficiary, for all or a percentage of the policy benefit. Simply complete your insurance carrier’s beneficiary designation form and return it to the company. Some carriers will allow you to change your beneficiary designation online. You can change beneficiaries in the future if circumstances change. Be sure to let us know if you have named A New Leaf as a beneficiary of your policy.

Donate a Policy*

You may transfer ownership of an existing policy or purchase a new policy, naming A New Leaf irrevocably as owner and beneficiary. Whether you make a lump sum premium payment, pay the premiums annually, or give an annual donation to A New Leaf to cover the premium amount, these payments are deductible as charitable gifts if you itemize your taxes.

*Please contact us first if you are considering donating a policy.

gifts that provide income

A Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) or a Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) can be an excellent option for donors who want to make a significant impact, receive additional income for themselves and/or beneficiaries, and reduce capital gains or income taxes. The assets remaining at the end of the term would then come to A New Leaf.

A Charitable Lead Trust (CLT) is a trust that pays income to A New Leaf over a pre-determined period of time, either a fixed amount or percentage of the assets, before the principal is returned to the donors or their heirs. A CLT can help donors make a significant charitable impact while reducing taxes resulting from the sale of a business, property, or other asset, while preserving principal for themselves or their heirs.
