Retirement Plan Beneficiary
Naming the Brain Injury Association of America as the beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan such as a 401(k), 403(b), or Individual Retirement Account (IRA) will accomplish a charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings. It can be costly to pass such assets on to heirs because of heavy tax consequences. By naming the Brain Injury Association of America as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, you maintain complete control over the asset while living and upon death pass the asset to the Brain Injury Association of America free of both estate and income taxes.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
Charitable Remainder Trusts are gift arrangements that enable you to contribute to the Brain Injury Association of America while providing financial support for yourself or others.
A Charitable Remainder Trust allows you to:
- Claim a charitable tax deduction in the year of the gift.
- Retain an income stream from the gift for yourself or others.
- Remove the assets from your taxable estates and leave a substantial gift to charity.
- Avoid capital gains taxes on appreciated assets donated to the trust.
In addition to the options above, you might consider remembering the Brain Injury Association of America with a bequest from your estate. To learn more about bequests, click here.
