Gifts Through A Will or Trust

This is one of the most common types of planned gifts. You can arrange to leave The Tech a specific dollar amount or asset, a percentage of your estate or the remainder after specific gifts to loved ones have been made.

Gifts Through A Retirement Plan or Life Insurance

You can name The Tech as the beneficiary of your individual retirement account (IRA), 401(k), 403(b), donor advised fund (DAF), life insurance policy or other account. These gifts are easy to arrange or modify. Simply complete a beneficiary designation form from your plan administrator to name The Tech a beneficiary of all or part of your retirement account or life insurance policy. If the retirement assets are tax-deferred, the portion left to The Tech will not be subject to tax.

Gifts of Real Estate

There are several options for donating real property that The Tech will be able to sell to fund our work. You can choose to donate property now, or gift it in your will or trust. You may also be able to donate a remainder interest that allows you to continue using your property for the rest of your life or transfer your property into a charitable remainder trust that provides you with income for the rest of your life.

Gifts That Provide Income

It is possible to establish a gift with cash, appreciated securities or real estate that will support The Tech in the future. These options can provide you or a loved one with regular payments, a significant charitable income tax deduction and avoidance of all or part of capital gain taxes.
