WAYS TO MAKE A PLANNED GIFTMany individuals have expressed their commitment to Medford Leas through Planned Giving – a very special and important form of financial support. These individuals have named Medford Leas as the beneficiary of a planned gift. Such gifts include a bequest by will, gifts of IRA assets, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and/or charitable beneficiary designation. *Always talk to your financial or legal advisor before making an estate gift.
BEQUEST BY WILLYou may transfer any asset you own through a written will to benefit Medford Leas. Although you will not receive any tax benefits during your lifetime, your taxable estate will be reduced by the amount of the charitable bequest.
Many investors are beginning to realize that upon their death, unused IRA assets will be heavily taxed. It is estimated that estate and income tax could consume anywhere from 60% to 80% of the money remaining in IRA assets. You can avoid income tax on retirement accounts as well as estate tax, by naming Medford Leas as a partial or full beneficiary of your retirement accounts.
