Future IRA Gift Options
November 8, 2018
In addition to giving through your IRA now, here are other options for making future gifts from your IRA account to charity:
Bequest of IRA
You can designate a nonprofit as the beneficiary of your IRA. This permits you to continue to take withdrawals from your IRA during your lifetime and leave the remaining value or a percentage of your IRA to a nonprofit.
Testamentary IRA Gift Annuity
Use your will to fund a gift annuity with your IRA. The annuity will provide your family with fixed income for their life, or a number of years, and will also provide a nice gift to your favorite cause(s).
Testamentary IRA Unitrust
You can also use your will to transfer your IRA to a special “Give it Twice” trust. These trusts usually provide income to children for up to 20 years. Once all the income has been paid to the family, the remainder of the trust is given to your favorite cause(s).
