Three Simple Ways to Leave a Lasting Legacy and Change Lives
Honor your values by including Freestore Foodbank in your will or trust.
After you have provided for your loved ones, you can include Freestore Foodbank and other nonprofits you have supported during your lifetime as beneficiaries. When writing or updating your will, you can name Freestore Foodbank to receive a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your residuary estate.
Make a tax-wise gift with a beneficiary designation.
A beneficiary designation from a retirement or insurance account is another simple way to make a legacy gift to Freestore Foodbank. These gifts bypass probate and go directly to your designated beneficiaries.
- Retirement Plans: With a simple signature on a form, you can include Freestore Foodbank as one of the recipients of your retirement plan. By doing this, you’ll spare your loved ones the required income tax that must be paid on all traditional IRA funds (not Roth IRAs). Download a beneficiary form from your retirement plan administrator’s website and add Freestore Foodbank.
- Insurance Policies: Do you no longer need the security of life insurance that your family once required? If not, put the policy to work advancing a charitable mission you value. Designate Freestore Foodbank as one of the beneficiaries of your life insurance policy’s death benefit.
When you complete your beneficiary designation form, name Freestore Foodbank as a beneficiary and remember to include our federal taxpayer identification number: 23-7122205.
Generate annual income through a charitable gift.
You can make a gift to Freestore Foodbank and receive guaranteed fixed payments for life. With a Charitable Gift Annuity, you would transfer cash or stock to Freestore Foodbank, receiving a partial tax deduction at the time of the gift and a guaranteed stream of annual income for your lifetime.
