Below is a brief description about different types of planned gifts. You may want to further research these to help provide a lasting legacy for RMA.
Types of Planned Gifts:
The most popular gift is a simple bequest through a will. You can leave a specific asset, a set amount of money, or a percentage of your estate.
Transfer assets to RMA under which the Academy agrees to pay the donor fixed payments for your life or for the life of your chosen beneficiaries.
Allows a donor to fund a trust with assets such as cash, stocks, or real estate and RMA will provide income for the donor.
Designate RMA as the beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy. Upon transfer of ownership, future premium payments are also tax deductible.
Real estate such as a residence, vacation home, farm, and land can be donated to RMA, even while you continue to live in or use the property. Capital gains tax might be avoided.
