Gifts of Retirement Assets
Donating part or all of your unused retirement assets, such as your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift to The Cru Foundation.
If you are like most people, you probably will not use all of your retirement assets during your lifetime. You can make a gift of your unused retirement assets to expand your gospel impact in the world.
If you are like most people, you probably will not use all of your retirement assets during your lifetime. Make a gift and help further our mission.
Get the most from your retirement assets
Did you know that 50%-60% of your retirement assets may be taxed if you leave them to your heirs at your death? Another option is to leave your heirs assets that receive a step up in basis (such as real estate and stock) and give the retirement assets to The Cru Foundation. As a charity, we are not taxed upon receiving an IRA or other retirement plan assets.
How to transfer your retirement assets
Your retirement assets may be transferred to The Cru Foundation by completing a beneficiary designation form provided by your plan custodian. If you designate The Cru Foundation as beneficiary, we will benefit from the full value of your gift because your IRA assets will not be taxed at your death. Your estate will benefit from an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift.
