Planned Gifts

There are many ways in which you may make a contribution through a planned gift. You may make a bequest to the USDF through a will or a living trust, establish an income-producing gift such as a charitable trust, a lead trust, a charitable remainder trust or gift annuity, name the USDF as a beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy, or even a 401 (K) or IRA rollover. Many of these methods provide tax advantages as well. Some donors choose to donate real estate and personal property, such as a second home, undeveloped land, artwork or jewelry. The USDF welcomes confidential inquiries to discuss potential gift options and benefits related to planned giving.
