OTHER PLANNED GIVING
Become part of the ASCF Legacy
Through a legacy gift, you can ensure that the doors of A Shelter for Cancer Families are open wide for years to come for the families who without our free short-term housing may not have the ability to receive the, often, lifesaving cancer care they need in the Texas Medical Center.
By designating a part of your estate to ASCF you are creating a powerful impact the lives of cancer families who travel from across the U.S. and who deserve a "home away from home" and support so that they can focus on care.
Planned Giving Opportunities Can Include:
Bequests – a gift made through a will or a living trust
Life Insurance Policy – a donor can designate a charity as a life insurance policy beneficiary
Retirement Plan Beneficiary – like a gift of life insurance, a donor can name a nonprofit as the beneficiary of a portion or all of his/her IRA, 401(k), or other retirement plans
IRA Rollover – a Charitable IRA Rollover (also referred to as a QCD — a qualified charitable distribution) allows donors 70½ or older to make tax-free IRA charitable rollover gifts of up to $100,000 per year directly from their IRA’s to eligible nonprofits
Charitable Gift Annuity – allows the donor to transfer an irrevocable gift of cash or securities to a nonprofit in exchange for a fixed income payment for life
Charitable Remainder Trust – allows a donor to contribute appreciated assets to the trust, generate a fixed income stream, defer or eliminate gains, and reduce estate taxes
Donors wishing to leave a planned gift to ASCF should consult with their attorney, financial advisor or accountant. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions or to notify us of your planned giving decision.
