When you include a gift to Petaluma Valley Hospital in your estate plans, you help advance our mission for many years to come. There are many ways to leave a legacy of caring. These include:
Bequests: A gift to Petaluma Valley Hospital from your estate is both easy and versatile and may help you achieve your goals and benefit the hospital in ways that may not be possible through a gift made during your lifetime. A bequest is a favored method of giving as it allows you to maintain control of your assets during your life, and ultimately benefit the hospital. Your gift can be in the form of cash, securities, a tax-deferred account such as an IRA or 401-K, your home or other property.
Life Income Gifts: Gifts such as a Charitable Gift Annuity or Charitable Remainder Trust can provide you with secure income during your lifetime as well as substantial tax benefits. These gifts can be funded with cash, property, securities or other appreciated assets.
The IRA Charitable Rollover is now a permanent provision of the federal tax code. It allows donors who are age 70 ½ or older to donate up to $100,000 each year from their IRA. The contribution counts towards your Required Minimum Distribution yet it is not included in your income. A gift from your IRA provides an excellent opportunity to make a gift during your lifetime from an asset that is often subject to multiple layers of taxation if left in your estate.
Transfers must be made directly from a traditional IRA account by your IRA plan administrator. Gifts from 401 (k), 403 (b), SEP or other plans do not qualify for this provision. Contact your plan administrator to initiate.
