Special Gifts – Stock, Life Insurance and Retirement Plan Assets
Making a gift of securities to us offers you a chance to help our organization while realizing many important tax benefits for yourself. Contributions of life insurance can provide a substantial gift to Avondale House. Consider donating a paid-up policy that is no longer needed to provide for your heirs or changing you policy’s beneficiary to support our work. A life insurance gift may allow you to support us more generously than you thought possible while providing you with significant income and estate tax benefits. Coordinating retirement planning and charitable giving can be especially beneficial if you have accumulated substantial retirement assets and wish to reduce income and estate taxes. For all of these special gifts, please consult your financial advisor, tax specialist, or estate-planning attorney to maximize benefits to both you and Avondale House.
As a year-round school, day habilitation site and residential program, our students and clients need a steady supply of basic materials. You can make an important contribution to our kids and adults; donate the supplies and learning tools they need to succeed. To see a printable list, click here.
