One simple and effective way is to make a bequest in your will or living trust to support a cause dear to your heart or to a loved one.

Many qualified retirement plans are over-funded and, depending on a person's tax level, may be taxed up to 85 percent before one's children or heirs receive money. Designating a non-profit as a subsequent beneficiary of a qualified fund will allow the remaining amount to go to the charity with no taxes owed at the time of the person's death. We recommend that you consult a financial and/or legal professional for specific information as to the legal or financial considerations that apply to your situation.
