Charitable Bequests +
Charitable bequests are made through a provision in a will or living trust, as part of an estate plan.
Retirement Accounts +
Retirement plan assets are another way to contribute to the Symphony. Upon death, retirement plan assets are subject to both estate and income taxes which means a substantial portion of such assets will likely go to the Internal Revenue Service. By making the Lake Forest Symphony the beneficiary of an IRA or other retirement account(s) removes the assets from the donor’s estate and lowers the taxes payable on the donor’s death.
Charitable Gift Annuities +
A charitable gift annuity is a contract between a charitable institution and a donor in which, in return for an initial payment, the issuer agrees to pay the donor and/or his or her designee, on a periodic basis, a fixed or minimum fixed sum certain for life, or for some fixed period of years, whether starting immediately or at some future date. As typically provided in such a contract, the residuum is conveyed to the charitable institution upon the death of the donor.
