Holy Childhood is constantly defining what is considered possible by our children and adults.
With your support we can provide our students and adults with tools and opportunities so that they may live their lives independently and in the most productive and fulfilling ways possible.
Please help us continue this important work with a gift to Holy Childhood's annual friendship appeal.
The School of the Holy Childhood is a beneficiary of your United Way support through the school age youth impact area. You can designate all or a part of your donation to Holy Childhood with donor option #487.
Planned Giving Opportunities
You can make a gift of any amount to Holy Childhood through your will. Your bequest can be made in the form of a stated dollar amount, a stated percentage of your estate or specific property. Your gift may either be unrestricted or restricted for a specific use.
The correct name in making a bequest is: Rochester School of the Holy Childhood
Gifts of Life Insurance
There are a couple of simple ways to make life insurance gifts that will give you tax benefits now and reduce your estate taxes later.
By purchasing a life insurance policy and transferring the ownership to Holy Childhood, the premium paid each year is tax deductible and there is a limited time of payment. As owner of the policy, Holy Childhood receives any policy dividends and the value of the policy will be excluded from your estate thereby reducing estate taxes.
Another way is to contribute an existing paid-up policy to Holy Childhood and receive an income tax deduction for its value.
Gifts of Real Estate and Personal Property
Real estate, artwork, jewelry, antiques and other tangible personal property can be given to Holy Childhood. The benefit to you is an immediate income tax deduction. The amount of the deduction will vary and is based on the nature of the gift.
Stock and Appreciated Assets
Using appreciated stocks to make a gift can be a tax-efficient way to help. By giving the gift of appreciated stocks, shares in a mutual fund or other types of appreciated property, you can avoid the capital gains tax and a charitable income tax deduction.
Consider using retirement plan benefits to make a significant gift that will support Holy Childhood. And because of the estate and income tax treatment of retirement plan benefits, the cost of your gift to your estate and heirs is often relatively small. Benefits include assets held in Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and assets held in accounts under 401(k) plans, profit-sharing plans, Keogh plans, and 403(b) plans.
There are many ways to structure an estate to meet both financial and philanthropic goals. Consult with your attorney or tax advisor to develop the estate plan that best meets your needs. If you would like more specific information on various methods of planned giving contact Deb Salmon at firstname.lastname@example.org
