Gifts Through Your Will

Statistics show that over half of the adults in the U.S die without a valid will. Having an up-to-date will is beneficial for various reasons, and you should consult your attorney to ensure that your will takes advantage of recent changes in tax laws. We hope that while you are considering your will, you consider a provision for ForcesUnited.

Gifts of Securities

An excellent method of supporting ForcesUnited is through a gift of long-term appreciated securities. This method gives you two valuable tax savings. First, you pay no capital gains tax for the securities’ appreciation in value. Second, you receive a tax deduction for the full market value of the securities on the date of the gift.

Gifts of Tangible Personal Property

Includes such items as books, artwork, furniture, Oriental rugs, automobiles, boats, silverware and jewelry. For these gifts to be deductible at their full market value: (1) the item must be directly related to ForcesUnited tax-exempt purposes; and (2) you must have owned the item long-term.

Gifts of Real Estate

You may own a residence, vacation home, farm, acreage, or vacant lot that has appreciated over the years and therefore, selling it would mean a sizeable capital gains tax. By supporting ForcesUnited through a gift of real estate, you would avoid the capital gains tax and also receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the property.

Life Insurance

You can use a policy that you currently own but no longer need, or purchase a new policy, to make a gift to ForcesUnited. At the time of your death, when the proceeds are paid to ForcesUnited, your estate would receive a charitable deduction.

Trusts

There are numerous types of Trusts that people create to serve various circumstances. You should check with your attorney to see whether one might be appropriate for your situation. A few types of Trusts are: Unitrusts, Annuity Trusts, Charitable Lead Trusts, Remainder Trusts and Revocable Trusts.
