Your Legacy Giving Options
The most straightforward way to make a lasting impact. Allocate a portion of your estate to Still I Run in your legal will.
Your legacy will continue to empower mental health warriors, just like you.
& Life Insurance
You can name a nonprofit as the beneficiary of your insurance policies or unused retirement assets, including Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), 401(k)s, 403(b)s, or pensions.
Tax Benefits of Legacy Giving
Legacy giving offers a win-win scenario: you support a cause you're passionate about while also benefiting from tax incentives. While you should always consult with a tax advisor, here are some general tax advantages that often come with planned giving:
Estate Tax Benefits
If you include a nonprofit like Still I Run in your will, the value of your bequest is usually deductible from your estate potentially lowering your estate tax burden.
Capital Gains Tax
Donating appreciated assets like stock can be especially advantageous. You typically don't pay capital gains tax on the appreciated value, and you may also be eligible for an income tax deduction based on the current market value of the asset.
Some planned gifts, such as charitable remainder trusts, provide you with an income stream that may be tax-deferred, allowing you to plan your tax liabilities more effectively.
Ready to Secure your Legacy?
Getting started with planned giving doesn't have to be overwhelming, and it can be one of the most rewarding decisions you make. We recommend getting started by talking to your financial advisor, tax consultant, or estate planner about the best ways to include Still I Run in your financial planning. They can help you understand the tax implications and benefits of different giving options.
Making a planned gift is a significant decision but taking it step-by-step makes the process manageable.
