Giving Options

Giving now

Cash or stock gifts are simple to make and immediately effective. All cash contributions are tax-deductible (up to 50% of a donor’s adjusted gross income.) Appreciated assets can include stocks, bonds, mutual funds and real property, and are tax-deductible up to 30% of adjusted gross income.

Future giving

Bequest – An outright bequest to the EPL Foundation is the simplest way to provide for a future gift. Please contact the EPLF for specific bequest language that can be included in your will or trust.

Charitable Gift Annuity – This is an irrevocable gift that returns a stream of payments to the donor or beneficiary. The donor qualifies for a charitable tax deduction for part of the gift, while payments may receive favorable tax treatment.

Life Insurance Policy – Unused life insurance policies make excellent charitable gifts. Please contact the EPLF for more information.

Charitable Remainder Trust – These allow donors to make gifts using payment options that best meet their needs. Remainder Trusts are flexible enough to permit the use of a variety of assets including cash, securities and real property. The payments also may have some tax benefit to the recipient.

Charitable Lead Trust – Through these lead trusts, donors can support the charitable needs now and the remaining assets can be transferred to other individuals or even to themselves at a future date. Assets in the lead trust would come to the EPLF for a fixed number of years or over a donor’s lifetime.

Your gift will have an impact in the lives of others for generations to come!
