GIFTS THAT WILL LEAVE A LEGACY

Naming Connor’s Heroes Foundation (CHF) as a beneficiary or including CHF in your estate planning may provide tax and financial benefits to you, as well as ensuring a hopeful future for our childhood cancer heroes. CHF will work with your agent, family members, and/or financial institution to fulfill your charitable goals.

WAYS TO GIVE

Donations to Connor’s Heroes are tax-deductible.

PLEDGED GIFTS
You can pledge to make a larger gift and fulfill it over a comfortable pace of your choosing. You can spread payments over a period of time—typically five years or less. You will receive an income-tax deduction for the amount you give each year.

ONE TIME GIFTS
Cash, checks or credit card gifts provide a safe and secure way to make a tax-deductible gift today. You can give a single gift or pledge to give every month.
Checks should be made payable to the Connor’s Heroes Foundation. Mail your gift to Connor’s Heroes Foundation • PO BOX 5512 Richmond VA 23220.
Credit card donations may be made online.

MATCHING GIFTS
Corporations can potentially double your gift if your company or organization has a matching program. Many companies match donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. Check with your HR Department on how you can request a matching gift for CHF.

WILLS, BEQUESTS AND LIVING TRUSTS
Leave CHF in your will by adding one sentence to your will: “I give to Connor’s Heroes Foundation, Richmond, VA, Federal Tax ID# 20-4992632 all (or __ % of) the rest, residue and remainder of my estate for its general purposes.”

DONOR ADVISED FUNDS (DAFs)
DAFs are funds with immediate tax benefits. You can grow your assets and distribute the money to an eligible IRS-qualified public charity on your own timeline. CHF has received donations through DAFs such as Community Foundation Richmond, Fidelity Charitable and Schwab Charitable. You can authorize your gifts to the Connor’s Heroes Foundation, Tax ID# 20-4992632.

GIFTS OF SECURITIES
Donating appreciated securities — stocks, bonds, or mutual funds that have realized significant appreciation over time — is a tax-efficient way to give.
Since the securities are donated rather than sold, capital gains taxes from the sale may no longer apply. Ask your agent to contact Celia, Executive Director, celia@connorsheroes.org or (804) 897-1272 for account information your agent will need to perform the transfer and to ensure the proper receipt and acknowledgment of your gift of securities.

PLANNED GIFTS
Your tax-free gift from your IRA can count toward your Required Minimum Distribution. Call your plan administrator to see how you can name CHF as the beneficiary. Use our Federal Tax ID# 20-4992632 in place of a social security number.
