What You Can Give

There are a number of assets you can give through your estate plan to help support individuals who are blind and visually impaired. We welcome the opportunity to work with you and help develop a plan that will meet your estate planning goals and help ensure our programs are able to continue to transform the quality of life for individuals with visual impairments.

Northwest Association for Blind Athletes encourages supporters to consult with their financial advisor or attorney before considering a planned gift of any nature.

Life Insurance: Donating life insurance to NWABA is a simple way to make a lasting impact on the lives of our athletes. Donors can name NWABA as a beneficiary of the policy, and premiums can be considered for a tax-deduction.

Real Estate: If you no longer need a piece of property, it can be bestowed to NWABA. Not only will donors avoid capital gains and other taxes, but they can also create a charitable gift annuity to ensure a stable stream of income.

IRAs (Retirement Plan Accounts): By making NWABA the beneficiary of your retirement account upon your death, you can avoid undue estate taxes while supporting the area of greatest need of a specific program.

Stocks/Bonds: Designating stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other securities to Northwest Association for Blind Athletes allows you to avoid capital gains tax while ensuring our programs are making a difference for a lifetime.

Cash Gifts: Making a gift of cash is the simplest way to make a gift and will allow your resources to have an immediate impact on individuals who are blind and visually impaired. Click here to learn more about making a gift today.

Other Property: Gifting other valuable property (i.e. cars, antiques and other items) is a great way to provide funds to support our life-changing programs while avoiding capital gains and other taxes.
