Planned Legacy Gifts & Bequests
You can leave a legacy while at the same time supporting the mission of the SDS Alliance. We are committed to making your gift meaningful to you.
A bequest through your will allows you to designate a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate to SDS Alliance. A bequest may reduce the amount of your taxable estate, which may increase the actual amount available to loved ones. Please talk to your attorney or financial advisor to determine the best way to include us in your estate plans.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +1-617-329-1838.
Stock and IRA Charitable Giving
Gifts of Stock that have been held for more than 12 months offer two-fold tax savings: a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift and capital gains can be avoided. Please talk to your tax or financial advisor.
Individual Retirement Account (IRA) owners over age 70½ may make a transfer of up to $100,000 per year to qualified charities, including Shwachman-Diamond Syndrome Alliance. IRA charitable rollovers are tax-free and not included in adjusted gross income. An IRA charitable rollover may fulfill part or all of your required minimum distribution (RMD). For more information on making an IRA contribution please talk to your tax or financial advisor.
Personalized Memorial Pages
In Loving Memory...
Every life should be celebrated and every loved one should be remembered. Creating a personalized memorial page in loving memory of a loved one is a way to remember those who have recently passed and a way to provide a dedicated link for friends and family to make a donation. You can personalize this page with text and a photo. As long as the page remains active, you can continue to use it to invite gifts in memory of your loved one.
