Ways to Give
Many donors say they wish they could do more to help The Foundation. We may be able to work with you and your advisors to create a gift that maximizes your intentions. Here are some of the ways to make a gift to The Foundation for the Awakening Mind.
Cash or check is the simplest form of gift to make. They are immediate and readily available. This gift entitles you to the largest tax deduction possible.
A bequest is a provision in your will naming the Foundation as a recipient of a part of your estate. It is flexible and easy. A bequest may be for a specific dollar amount, a percentage or fraction of your estate, or it may take the form of a trust.
Securities or stocks held more than one year that have gone up in value make extremely effective gifts.
Retirement Funds naming The Foundation for the Awakening Mind as a beneficiary of all or part of an IRA or qualified retirement plan could achieve both estate and income tax savings.
Life Income Agreements (charitable trusts, pooled income funds, etc.) Could be used to pay income for life to you or anyone you name, with future benefit to Awakening Mind. You receive a deduction for the value of the Foundations interest.
