The Legacy Society honors and celebrates those donors who have included a gift for HUMAA in their estate plans. These gifts take many forms, including simple bequests by will, designations of retirement plan assets, life income gifts and more. Legacy donors may direct their gift to establish a named endowed fund with HUMAA, creating an enduring gift to future generations. Gifts such as these offer the following benefits:
- Simplicity. Just a few sentences in your will or trust are all that is needed. Check out our Sample Bequest Language tips.
- Flexibility. Because you are not actually making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind at any time.
- Versatility. You can structure the bequest to leave a specific item or amount of money, make the gift contingent on certain events, or leave a percentage of your estate to us.
- Tax Relief. If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift is entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift's full value.
