Legacy Giving

Consider the FBINAA Charitable Foundation in your estate planning by making a donation in the form of a bequest or gift of cash, real estate, annuities contracts, securities, assets comprising an IRA or retirement plan account, or the proceeds of a life insurance policy.

Legacy giving offers significant tax benefits. For example, the value of the assets you give at death is fully deductible for federal estate tax purposes. By naming FBINAA Charitable Foundation as the beneficiary of an annuity contract, traditional IRA or qualified retirement plan account, no income tax is payable on the deferred income passing to the Foundation, thereby increasing the power of that wealth to do good.

In terms of lifetime giving, you may also want to consider establishing a charitable lead trust or a charitable remainder trust of which the FBINAA Charitable Foundation is a beneficiary. Those types of tax favored trusts can also be created at death.

All these types of charitable giving should be discussed by you with your own tax advisor. Leave a lasting legacy and start living in the way you want to be remembered. It will allow you to start doing what matters, now.
