If you are over 70 ½, you are required to take distributions from an IRA. Instead of creating a taxable event for yourself, make the distribution a charitable gift using all or a portion of your mandatory withdrawal amount (up to $100,000 total, per person).

Retirement Plans

IRAs, 401(K), 403(B) and other retirement accounts grow tax-deferred, often becoming quite large over the years. Unlike many other types of investments, funds withdrawn from retirement accounts can be taxable to you and, eventually, to your heirs. Designate WakeEd as the beneficiary of your retirement account.

Life Insurance

If you have a life insurance policy that you no longer need, donate it to WakeEd Partnership to take advantage of a charitable tax deduction. You’ll benefit from an income tax deduction equal to the replacement value of the policy or the tax basis, whichever is less.

Planned Giving

A charitable bequest to WakeEd Partnership, whether a specific amount or a percentage of your estate, will allow you to create a philanthropic legacy while providing estate tax relief.
