When you make a planned gift to the Center for Head Injury Services, you will help those effected by a disability now and for years to come.

Continue the positive impact you have initiated in your life by empowering the Center to help people with disabilities to access vocational training, employment services, therapy, counseling and independence supports they need to reach their maximum potential. Your gifts are fully tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Planned giving options include:

How it works

  • To make an estate gift to the Center for Head Injury Services, ask your attorney to include a statement in a will or trust that conveys your desire to contribute.
  • Make your bequest to be used for the general support of our work or directed to a specific purpose (please check with us to make sure your gift can be used as intended).
  • Indicate a specific dollar amount, a percentage of the balance remaining in your estate or you can bequeath specific property to our organization.

Benefits

  • Your assets remain in your control during your lifetime.
  • You can modify your bequest to address changing circumstances.
  • Under current tax law there is no upper limit on the estate tax deduction for your charitable bequests.

Whatever your objectives, we will be happy to work with you in planning a bequest that will be satisfying, economical and effective in carrying out your wishes in our important mission.

How It Works

  • A gift of life insurance uses manageable payments made from income — the premiums — to create a large future gift for the Center.
  • You can donate an existing policy by assigning all rights in the policy to the Center for Head Injury Services and completing all paperwork required by the insurance company.
  • Or you can take out a new policy, naming the Center for Head Injury Services the irrevocable owner and beneficiary (this arrangement allows for premium payments to be considered tax deductible, according to the IRS).
  • The Center receives the premium notices and you make annual, tax-deductible donations to the Center in the amount of the premium payments.
  • When the policy matures, the proceeds are paid to the Center, which we apply to general support of our work or directed to a specific purpose (please check with us to make sure your gift can be used as intended).

Benefits

  • You can build our long-term financial strength without diminishing your own.
  • Your gifts offsetting our premium payments are fully tax deductible.
  • You may also get a charitable deduction for the policy itself (generally the lesser of the policy’s fair market value or the total of your net premium payments).

*Please consult your legal and financial advisors.

How It Works

  • Name the Center for Head Injury Services as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), 403(b) or other qualified plan.
  • Designate us to receive all or a portion of the balance of your plan through your plan administrator.
  • The balance in your plan passes to the Center after your passing, which will be used for the general support of our work or directed to a specific purpose (please check with us to make sure your gift can be used as intended).

Benefits

  • Avoid the double taxation your retirement savings would incur if you designated your heirs as beneficiaries.
  • Continue to take regular lifetime withdrawals.
  • You can revoke us as a beneficiary if your family’s needs change.

*Please consult your legal and financial advisors.
