Planned Giving: Leaving A Legacy

Since 2001, the Headington Institute has worked to promote the physical hardiness, emotional resilience, and spiritual vitality of humanitarian aid and disaster relief workers worldwide.  During that time, our donors have responded with extraordinary generosity and commitment.

There are many ways to create a legacy by making a gift to the Headington Institute. The following examples can enhance your financial and estate planning while providing an immediate or deferred gift to the Headington Institute. Please contact Alicia Jones (ajones@headington-institute.org) if you would like more information.

Outright Gifts

Gifts of Stock

Making a charitable gift of stock held for more than one year may provide increased tax benefits. Your charitable income tax deduction is based on the fair market value of the stock and you may bypass any capital gains tax. Remember that mutual funds can also be donated.


 

IRA Charitable Rollover

The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 may permit IRA owners, age 70½ and older, to make a qualified charitable distribution of up to $100,000 during the calendar year. The IRA rollover is not included in taxable income so there is no income tax deduction. The IRA rollover does qualify for the IRA owner’s required minimum distribution. If you intend to support the Headington Institute with a qualified charitable distribution, please contact Alicia Jones (ajones@headington-institute.org) so a confirmation letter can be sent to you.


Deferred Gifts

Estates and Bequests

A gift through your will or living trust is a simple but significant way to remember the Headington Institute. You may designate the Headington Institute as beneficiary of a specific dollar amount, specific asset, or percentage of your estate. If you have included the Headington Institute as a beneficiary of your estate, please let us know so we can thank you. 


Retirement Plans

You can name the Headington Institute as the beneficiary of your pension plan or Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Using retirement plan benefits to make a gift may be a wise financial decision, since the Headington Institute receives 100 percent of the gift due to its tax-exempt status. Conversely, an individual may receive 50 percent or less from a retirement plan gift because of various income and estate taxes.


Life Insurance

The Headington Institute can be named the primary or the contingent beneficiary of your life insurance policy. Life insurance can be used to make a large gift at little cost. Some donors find that their policy is no longer needed for the reason it was originally purchased and use it to benefit a favorite charity. If you have included the Headington Institute as a beneficiary, please let us know so we can thank you.
