Legacy Gifts

Here are a few ways you can make a difference with deferred gifts through bequests, appreciated securities, and retirement accounts.

Bequests.  A bequest is a gift left in a will.  You can include a bequest provision in your will or set up a revocable trust.  A bequest reduces the value of your estate for federal estate tax purposes and is usually exempt from state inheritance taxes.
Gifts of publicly-traded, appreciated securities such as stocks and bonds are also very valuable to Evant.  By contributing all or a portion of your portfolio, tax penalties associated with cashing out the securities will be decreased.

Another way you can give is by naming Evant as a beneficiary on your retirement accounts.  By naming Evant as beneficiary of an IRA, 401(k), or 403(b), you can take withdrawals during your lifetime and alter the beneficiary, should your circumstances change.

Deferred gifts are a great way to leave a legacy and support people who utilize Evant services.  As you plan for retirement and determine beneficiaries for your estate, please keep the people we serve in mind.  
Please consult an attorney or professional advisor prior to allocating any deferred gifts to Evant.  Should you wish to restrict a gift, please contact Evant before doing so.
