Make a Bequest
A bequest is a gift from your estate—a transfer of cash, securities, or other property made through your estate plans. You can make a bequest to the Doubleday Sports Complex by including language in your will or living trust leaving a portion of your estate to the Doubleday Sports Complex, or by designating the Doubleday Sports Complex as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy.
Some of the advantages of creating a bequest include:
- A bequest costs nothing now, yet gives you the satisfaction of knowing you have provided for the Doubleday Sports Complex in the future;
- You retain control of and use of your assets during your lifetime;
- You may modify your bequest if your circumstances change;
- Gifts to the Doubleday Sports Complex from your estate are exempt from federal estate taxes; and
- If you let Doubleday know of your plans, we will be able to thank you now and recognize your contribution.
A bequest to the Doubleday Sports Complex can be made for a specific amount, for a percentage of your estate, or for all or a portion of what is left after you have made bequests to your family. To make a gift to the Doubleday Sports Complex from your estate, you must sign a new will or living trust instrument, add a codicil to your present will, or make an amendment to your present trust instrument.
Alternatively, you can designate the Doubleday Sports Complex as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. To do so, contact the retirement plan administrator or life insurance company and complete the appropriate beneficiary designation form.
Planning Your Bequest
When planning for a bequest, you will need to consider how you would like your gift to be used to benefit the Doubleday Sports Complex —whether unrestricted in purpose or restricted to a specific program or purpose, and whether you would like it to be an expendable fund (to be spent when received) or an endowed fund (to last in perpetuity).
An unrestricted bequest allows the Doubleday Sports Complex to determine how to use the funds based on its most pressing needs. Unrestricted bequests are extremely valuable because the Doubleday Sports Complex can use them to flexibly meet its future needs.
A restricted bequest directs assets to a specific program, facility, or particular purpose. A restricted bequest may be for an expendable or endowed fund:
- Expendable funds are used in their entirety, generally within a relatively short time frame.
- Endowed funds provide income every year in perpetuity to carry out the designated purpose of the fund.
Donate Stocks, Bonds or Mutual funds
When you donate stock, bonds or mutual funds to charity, you’ll generally take a tax deduction for the full fair market value. Check with your broker or investment adviser about your specific circumstances.
