Gifts that cost you nothing now
Gifts in a will or by beneficiary designation are two easy ways to nourish those facing serious illness for years to come — and they don’t cost anything now.
Gifts in a Will
Making a legacy gift in your will or trust is one of the easiest and most popular ways to make a lasting impact for Project Angel Food. Once you have provided for your loved ones, we hope you will consider making feeding those in need part of your life story through a legacy gift.
A gift in your will is one of the easiest ways to create your legacy and offers the following benefits:
Your gift will create a legacy of health, hope and comfort to those facing serious illness.
You can alter your gift or change your mind at any time and for any reason.
It costs you nothing now to give this way.
Four simple, “no-cost-now” ways to give in your will
A general bequest is a gift of a specific amount.
You can mix these no-cost ways together. For example, you might consider leaving a specific percentage (such as 50%) of the residual to Project Angel Food contingent upon the survival of your spouse.
Gifts by Beneficiary Designation
It’s easy to put your bank accounts, retirement funds, savings bonds, and more to use in nourishing our seriously ill neighbors for years to come — and it costs you nothing now.
By naming Project Angel Food as a beneficiary of these assets, you can power our mission for years to come and establish your personal legacy of delivering hope and comfort to those who need it most.
Potential benefits of gifts by beneficiary designation:
Reduce or eliminate taxes
Reduce or avoid probate fees
No cost to you now to give
Create your legacy with Project Angel Food
Types of Gifts
Retirement plan assets
You can simply name Project Angel Food as a beneficiary of your retirement plan to ensure people facing serious illness can receive nutritious food for years to come.
Life insurance policies
You can name Project Angel Food as a beneficiary of all or a portion of your life insurance policy. With this gift arrangement, Project Angel Food will receive the proceeds of your policy after your lifetime. You can change your beneficiary at any time and may reduce your estate taxes.
Bank or brokerage accounts
This is one of the easiest gifts to give and one of the most useful in accomplishing your philanthropic goals. The next time you visit your bank, you can name Project Angel Food (Tax ID: 95-4115863) as the beneficiary of a checking or savings bank account, a certificate of deposit (CD), or a brokerage account. When you do, you’ll take a powerful step toward nourishing those facing critical illness for generations to come.
Funds remaining in your donor-advised fund
What remains in a donor-advised fund is governed by the contract you completed when you created your fund. When you name Project Angel Food as a “successor” of your account or a portion of your account value, you help to ensure that people with serious illness can receive nutritionally balanced meals.
How to update a beneficiary designation:
Simply contact your bank, retirement plan administrator, insurance company, or other financial institution to request a beneficiary designation form. You may also be able to log in to your account and update your beneficiaries online.
