Want to leave a legacy?

  • Will or Estate

    Many donors provide their most significant gift through their wills by naming White’s Residential & Family Services as one of the beneficiaries of their will or estate.

  • Life Insurance Beneficiary

    One of the simplest ways to donate is to designate White’s Residential & Family Services as one of the beneficiaries of your life insurance policy. This may be in the form of a specific dollar amount or percentage.

  • IRA or Retirement Plan

    Retirement accounts or IRAs should have beneficiary listings in case money remains in the account after the owner passes. Some people assign a percentage of what remains to White’s or other charities.

Charitable Gift

A charitable gift annuity is a simple contract between you and White’s. In exchange for your irrevocable gift of cash, securities or other assets, White’s agrees to pay one or two annuitants a fixed sum each year for life. The payments are guaranteed by the general resources of White’s. For annuities of $25,000 or more, annuitants may choose to create a named endowment that would forever connect a family name or the name of a loved one to our ministry.

The older the annuitants are at the time of the gift, the greater the fixed income White’s can agree to pay.

Payments are usually made to annuitants in quarterly installments, with a minimum gift annuity of $10,000.

In most cases, part of each payment is tax-free, increasing each payment’s after-tax value. If you give appreciated property, you will pay capital gains tax on only part of the appreciation. In addition, if you name yourself as an annuitant, the capital gains tax will be spread out over many years rather than be all due in the year of your gift.

Link your legacy with White’s Future.

Charitable Trusts

Larger gifts, generally $250,000 or more, may be made through a charitable trust. There are different types of trusts that can be designed to best meet the needs of your family and situation. Included are Charitable Lead Trusts, where a gift is made, the interest from which goes to the charity for a specified period of time, after which the remainder returns to the family or other designee. Charitable Remainder Trusts involve making a gift that is invested, with a specified amount returning to the donor during their lifetime and the remainder going to the charity upon their passing.
