A planned gift offers you the chance to give to Dunwoody now or after your lifetime, helping you align your charitable giving with your overall financial and estate plans. Many giving options offer you financial benefits, allowing you to make the greatest impact on our students while maintaining the future security of you and your loved ones. Below is a selection of giving options for your consideration.
You designate Dunwoody as the beneficiary of your asset by will, trust or beneficiary designation form.
Specific Bequest: States a specific dollar amount or asset that may be a gift of cash, securities, real estate, or tangible personal property.
Residual Bequest: Names Dunwoody to receive all or a percentage of the remainder of the estate after your specific bequests have been fulfilled.
Contingent Bequest: Takes effect only if all primary beneficiaries named in the will have predeceased you.
Donating part or all of your unused retirement assets such as a gift from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan is a way to make significant gift that will support Dunwoody. Because of estate- and income-tax treatment of retirement-plan benefits, the cost of your gift to your estate and heirs is often relatively small.
