Here is some sample language to share with your attorney if you would like to include The Rampy MS Research Foundation in your estate plans:

"I give, devise and bequeath to The Rampy MS Research Foundation, a not-for-profit organization having its offices at P.O. 1871, Bentonville, Arkansas, for the use of its activities in the support of medical research related to multiple sclerosis, the sum of _____ dollars and/or _____ shares of capital stock of _____corporation and/or the following described property_____and/or_____% of my residuary estate."

Life Insurance

The substantial leverage involved in insurance would afford you the capability of gifting a significant amount for a relatively small cost; in return you would probably receive an income tax charitable deduction. Making a charity the beneficiary of a life insurance policy is one of the simplest ways of providing a bequest to those organizations you wish to support.

Stocks

If you were thinking of locking in some of your capital gains this year, consider the more tax-efficient alternative of donating shares of appreciated mutual funds or stock to RMSRF instead. You can deduct the current market value of the gift for income tax purposes, just as if you had made cash payment. As an added advantage, you will avoid any capital gains taxes you would have owed if you had sold the assets instead.

IRA

The IRA charitable rollover provision permits individuals age 70 and older to make charitable donations of up to $100,000 from Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and Roth IRAs without having to count the distributions as taxable income. The IRA Charitable Rollover is intended to benefit donors of all income levels. You should consult with your tax or legal counsel to make sure that you meet all the criteria and that your intended gift will qualify under this provision.
