1. Outright Cash Gifts

It’s simple! Cash gifts can be made in currency, by check or credit card or through any other form of cash transfer. Cash can also be used to fund other charitable giving arrangements, including charitable gift annuities, charitable lead trusts and charitable remainder trusts. Cash gifts give you the satisfaction of knowing that you have provided an immediate benefit to National Stroke Association. More Information

2. Gifts of Appreciated Securities

When given appreciated securities, we sell the securities and use the proceeds to further our charitable mission. A gift of appreciated securities may also be used to fund a charitable gift annuity, a charitable lead trust or a charitable remainder trust. Gifts of appreciated securities also give you the satisfaction of knowing that you have provided an immediate benefit to National Stroke Association. More Information

There are many ways that real estate can be used to benefit National Stroke Association. The simplest method is to deed the real estate to National Stroke Association. We will sell the property and use the proceeds to further our charitable mission. Options are also available if you are living on the property or would like money back upon contributing the property.  More Information

4. Gifts of Business Interests

You may contribute to National Stroke Association an interest you own in a closely held business or partnership. Your business can then buy (redeem) the interest from us, or we can sell the interest for fair market value to a third party and use the proceeds to further our charitable mission. More Information

5. Gifts Upon Death (Testamentary Gifts)

You may name National Stroke Association as a recipient in your will or living trust. You may either designate a certain dollar amount or a certain percentage of your estate to go to National Stroke Association. You may also name National Stroke Association to receive the remainder of your estate after all other gifts have been made. More Information

6. Gifts of Retirement Plans

You may name National Stroke Association as a successor beneficiary on your retirement plan (IRA, 401[k], etc.). You may continue to receive distributions from the retirement plan during your lifetime, and the remainder of the plan will be distributed to National Stroke Association after death. More Information

In addition, Charitable IRA Rollovers are another option. For 2011, individuals who are at least 70 and a half years of age may make a charitable contribution of up to $100,000 directly from an individual retirement account to National Stroke Association without incurring income tax. This benefit is currently only available for 2011 unless Congress acts to change the law. More Information

7. Gifts of Life Insurance

You may contribute a paid-up life insurance policy to National Stroke Association. We will either cash in the policy or keep the policy and collect the death benefit after you die. With a gift of life insurance, you get an income tax deduction for the contribution, and the value of the life insurance is removed from your estate, thus potentially avoiding estate taxes. More Information

8. Charitable Gift Annuities

You may give cash or securities to National Stroke Association, and we give you annuity payments for your lifetime. The remainder of your contribution after your death goes to National Stroke Association for its charitable mission. If you are interested in a charitable gift annuity, please call our planned giving office to discuss this option further.   More Information

9. Charitable Remainder Trust

A charitable remainder trust is similar to a charitable gift annuity except your contribution is placed in a separate trust. You or someone you name will receive either an annual annuity amount (a fixed dollar amount) or an annual unitrust amount (a fixed percentage of the value of trust assets value annually) for a period of years or for life, and the remainder will be contributed to National Stroke Association.   More Information

10. Charitable Lead Trust

You may contribute assets to a trust. The initial beneficiary of the trust is National Stroke Association. National Stroke Association receives either an annual annuity amount (a fixed dollar amount) or an annual unitrust amount (a fixed percentage of the value of trust assets value annually) for a period of years or for life, and the remainder will be contributed to your heirs.
