There’s No Time Like the Present to Think About Your Estate Plan

Of those who do have a will, 70% don’t have theirs up to date. No matter how large or small your estate is, incorporating charitable giving in your estate plans is one of the best ways to give back and ensure your assets are benefiting the organizations you care most about. Estate planning (or Planned Giving) has several benefits that will benefit you, your family, and our organization.

  • Tax Benefits: By gifting investments, retirement accounts, stocks life insurance and more, you will receive a tax advantage and the organization will receive your ongoing support.
  • The Choice is Yours: Choose whether to leave a specific asset or dollar amount, or a percentage of your estate; and know how, when and where these funds will be spent. And if your financial position changes, your planned gift is revokable.
  • Create a Legacy: Create a legacy for yourself or our family by making a lasting impact on a cause that’s important to you.

When you include Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) in your estate planning, you become part of an elite group by joining our Champions Legacy Society. Leave a legacy and make a difference for a lifetime by providing support to individuals who are blind and visually impaired. Whether you choose to give during your lifetime or include us in your estate plan, we have the resources to help.

It’s easier than you think to create an estate plan and we’ve developed a comprehensive program designed to assist our Champions Legacy Society members in navigating this process. You’ve supported us for years and now it’s our turn to support you.
