Ways to Give
Our federal tax ID number is: 13-3801864
Below is suggested language to use when drafting your bequest.
SAMPLE LANGUAGE FOR YOUR WILL:
For your gift to Children’s Rights to go where it is most needed, use the following language for your will and/or trust:
Specific Dollar Amount or Percentage Bequest
“I give to Children’s Rights, a non-profit charity currently located at 88 Pine Street, New York, NY 10005, Federal Tax ID 13-3801864, % or $ (written amount or percentage of the estate) for its general use and purpose.”
“I give to Children’s Rights, a nonprofit organization located at 88 Pine Street, NY 10005, Federal Tax ID 13-3801864, all or a percentage of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate to be used for its general use and purpose.”
A bequest is generally a revocable gift, which means it can be changed or modified at any time. You can choose to designate that a bequest is used for a general or specific purpose so you have the peace of mind knowing your gift will be used as intended. Bequests are exempt from federal estate taxes. If you have a taxable estate, the estate tax charitable deduction may offset or eliminate estate taxes, resulting in a larger inheritance for your heirs.
If you are 70 ½ years old or older
You can give any amount up to a maximum of $100,000 annually from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as Children’s Rights without having to pay income taxes on the gift. Known as the IRA charitable rollover or qualified charitable distribution, this gift allows you to satisfy all or part of your required minimum distribution, without paying income tax or generating taxable income.
When you use a beneficiary designation, you simplify the estate planning and administration process, as your assets pass directly to the beneficiary without going through the probate process. You also avoid the time and cost of updating your will and can cancel or alter the agreement at any time.
Start by requesting a change-of-beneficiary form from your policy administrator, insurance agent, or bank representative, or download the form from your provider’s website. Make your desired changes and return the form to establish your gift. Notify us so we can thank you for your generosity and include you as a member of our Legacy Society.
If you have named Children’s Rights in your will or other estate plans, please let us know so that we can thank you for your generosity. Notifying us of your gift will enable us to include you in our Legacy Society. Of course, we will honor your wishes if you want your gift to remain anonymous. We will keep your name and gift in strict confidence.
