Planned Giving: Giving that Benefits Your Family and NYMA!
What Inspires You?
According to the company Stelter, Inc., not surprisingly, 83% of current planned givers say they have a natural affinity to the mission and cause of the charity that they have mentioned in their will. Most donors also believe that gifts to charities change the world for the better and giving makes us feel good. The reality is that many people have children who are doing very well, so there is a great ability to make a gift to a favorite charity such as New York Military Academy.
By choosing to make a planned gift, you ensure that the impact of your generosity will reach far beyond your lifetime. Planned gifts also offer a variety of tax benefits and can make estate planning easier. We’ll work closely with you to determine the gift structure that is most appropriate for your goals and that will have lasting value for NYMA.
Types of planned giving vehicles:
You can choose to create a lasting legacy for NYMA by naming the school in your will. Bequest options include:
•A specific bequest of cash or real property, designating a set dollar amount or specific piece of property
•A proportionate bequest representing a percentage of your estate
•A residual bequest which distributes the balance of your estate after other specific bequests have been distributed
