Of the many types of planned giving vehicles, bequests and beneficiary designations are popular for their ease and simplicity.
Bequests: To donate cash or publicly traded securities to Opportunity Council through your will, you may name the organization as a beneficiary. You may find this sample language helpful for creating or adjusting your will.
Beneficiary Designations: You may also make a lasting gift by designating Opportunity Council as your choice of beneficiary for your life insurance, retirement plan, or donor advised fund. In fact, donating IRA and retirement plans to charity often costs less than passing those funds on to your children. Please speak to your attorney or financial advisor about what will work best for you and your family and for exact details.
