What to Give

What to Give to the Women’s Foundation of Southwest Florida

Look below to learn about the assets commonly used to fund a gift:

Retirement Plan Assets

Do you have money saved in an employee retirement plan, IRA or tax-sheltered annuity? Each of these retirement plan assets contains income that has yet to be taxed. Your beneficiaries will owe the income tax at your death, totaling up to 35 percent, which may be reason enough to consider giving your loved ones less heavily taxed assets and leaving your retirement plan assets to charity instead.

Savings Bonds

There’s more than one way to turn your savings bonds into a generous donation while reducing the tax liability generated by these secure investments.

Life Insurance Death Benefits

Your need for life insurance changes as time passes, making way for a new opportunity for its use. If you no longer need the coverage to protect your loved ones, consider changing your policy’s beneficiary to support our work.

Life Insurance Settlement

A Life Settlement is the sale of an existing life insurance policy for a lump sum of cash that is more than the surrender value- typically 4-8 times more. A life insurance policy is an asset; therefore, the policy owner can sell their policy if they no longer want or need it, and donate the settlement proceeds to charity, while receiving a tax deduction for their donation amount.
