USA Cares would like to Thank YOU for your interest in supporting our organization. It is our goal to provide you and your family with helpful information.
Our Nations Hero’s and their families who are in need of the programs and services which our organization provides continue to increase. The only thing that prevents us from providing these services to them is the additional funding.
With gifts provided to USA Cares in the form of life income gifts, gift annuities and other plans we will be able to reach out to so many more.
Thank you for taking the time to explore the benefits of gift planning.
What to Give:
Preparing Your Will
Writing a will that takes into consideration all the legal possibilities is no more a do-it-yourself proposition. You should consult an attorney to draft a will: (1) distributes your property according to your precise wishes; (2) minimizes taxes; (3) cares for the needs of particular beneficiaries and (4) minimizes costs.
Gift of Insurance
A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to us. If your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors consider making a gift and help further our mission.
Gifts of Stocks and Bonds
A gift of your securities, including your stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to make a gift. By making a gift of your appreciated securities, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.
Financial & Estate Planning for Women
Many people, both men and women, spend little time on their financial and estate planning. As a result, they may find themselves paying more taxes than necessary, investing their assets unwisely or leaving their property to distant relatives. A little financial and estate planning done now may go a long way.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
A charitable remainder trust is a tax-wise way to increase your current income – while you provide a generous gift to USA Cares.
Additional gift opportunities to USA Cares include the following:
Gifts of Real Estate
A gift of your real property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland or ranch or commercial property) can make a great gift. If you own appreciated real property, you can avoid paying capital gains tax by making a gift to us.
Gifts of Retirement Assets
A gift of your retirement assets [IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax deferred plan] is an excellent way to make a gift. By making a gift of your retirement assets, you will help further our work.
Gifts of Cash
A gift of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make a gift. You will receive a charitable tax deduction that will provide you with savings on this year’s tax return.
