Bequest and Legacy Giving

Giving to the Adaptive Sports Center ensures that we can continue enhancing the lives of people with disabilities through exceptional outdoor activities. Planned gifts from forward thinking donors will ensure that the Adaptive Sports Center thrives for generations to come. We understand that a planned gift is one of the most personal commitments you can make and we appreciate your consideration. 

No minimum gift requirements are set by the ASC, as gifts of all sizes impact our future. Your financial advisor and/or tax advisor can recommend a planned giving instrument that is best for your charitable goals.

Following are some of the most popular planning giving options.

Gifts From Your Will (General Bequest)

Through a provision in your written and executed will, you can make a gift in the form of cash, securities, real estate or personal property. There are many types of bequests. Choose the one that best fits your needs.



Beneficiary Gifts (Retirement Accounts)

Naming the Adaptive Sports Center as the beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan asset such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, Keogh, profit-sharing pension plans, or other donor-advised funds will accomplish a charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings.



Gifts That Pay You (Charitable Gift Annuity)

You can turn underperforming assets (stock, cash in a savings account, CDs, savings bonds, etc) into a gift to the ASC that provides income to you. Your charitable gift annuity will give you quarterly, fixed payments for life and tax benefits too.




Gifts of Stock (Appreciated Stock)

When you donate appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares instead of cash, you'll receive charitable deductions at full, fair market value while reducing capital gains impact.



Charitable IRA Distribution

If you're 70.5 or older, you can make a gift directly from your IRA to the ASC. While there is no charitable deduction for a charitable IRA distribution, you do avoid the income tax on the donated portion of your required minimum distribution.



Gifts of Property (Real Estate and Other Valuable)

Like stock, the fair market value of gifts of appreciated assets such as real estate, artwork, and other well-curated collections, can be deducted from your income tax today and reduce your estate taxes in the future.
