Bequest in a Will

A donor can designate Rawhide as the recipient of all or part of his/her estate. However, this can only be accomplished through a will or other estate planning documents.

Charitable Remainder Trust

Either cash or other assets (appreciated stocks) can be put into a remainder trust, which is irrevocable. During the donor’s lifetime he/she can receive payments, at least quarterly, amounting to five percent or greater, depending on the age of the donor. At the death of the donor, the remaining balance would transfer to Rawhide.

Retirement/IRA Account

You can transfer your IRA at your death to a qualified charity as beneficiary. Rawhide will not incur any income tax on the proceeds because of its tax-exempt status.

Charitable Lead Trust

Any donor can create a trust naming a charitable beneficiary and specifying the trust terms, then transfer the property to the trust. The Trustee who administers the trust is responsible for the investment of the assets and administration of the trust. The Trustee pays the required amount to Rawhide at specified times and then distributes the remaining balance to the beneficiaries at the end of the trust term.

Life Insurance

Life insurance provides many options for a donor to choose from. You may choose to designate Rawhide as the beneficiary, or partial beneficiary, of a life insurance policy. There is no income tax benefit with this option but a possible estate tax benefit. You may also donate existing policies that are no longer needed. Tax deductions may be equal to the policy’s cash replacement value. A donor may also purchase a policy and name Rawhide as the owner and beneficiary; the premiums you pay are fully tax deductible. At the donor’s death, the charity receives the insurance proceeds.

Charitable Gift Annuity

A donor may transfer a specified amount of money or other property to Rawhide. In return, Rawhide will pay the donor a certain amount (annuity) each year for a specified term or for the remainder of your life. At the death of the beneficiary, Rawhide will use the principal in accordance with the terms of the gift.
