The following guide is intended to help you plan a meaningful gift to Project New Hope Inc. All information provided is general in nature. For specific advice concerning your situation, please consult your attorney.
- Annual Gifts
The Project New Hope Inc. Annual Fund provides critical ongoing support for retreats and services with the greatest need.
Unrestricted gifts to the annual fund are an important source of steady income. They enable Project New Hope Inc. to provide additional weekend retreats throughout New England and more.
- Planned Gifts
A planned gift is a way to make a gift now that will provide immediate financial benefits to you and future benefits to Project New Hope Inc. By making a planned gift, you may enjoy tax savings and income for life (funded by assets such as appreciated securities). A variety of methods used to make these gifts range from simple bequests made in wills to setting up charitable trusts. These methods are described below.
If you decide to leave assets from your estate to Project New Hope Inc. by provision in your will, or a codicil to your will, this is a bequest. You can bequeath a specific amount of money, a percentage of your estate, or specific property.
Your estate will receive a charitable estate tax deduction at your death, when the gift is actually made. A bequest enables you to make a significant gift to Project New Hope Inc. while retaining full control of your assets throughout your life and reducing your estate taxes.
- Charitable Remainder Trusts
A charitable remainder trust makes payments — either a fixed amount (annuity trust) or a percentage of trust principle (unitrust) — to whomever you choose. You may claim a charitable income tax deduction and may not have to pay any capital gains tax if the gift is of appreciated property. At the end of the trust term, Project New Hope Inc. receives whatever amount is left in the trust.
Charitable reminder unitrust provides some flexibility in the distribution of income, and can be helpful in retirement.
- Charitable Lead Trusts
The lead trust makes payments — either a fixed amount (annuity trust) or a percentage of trust principle (unitrust) — to Project New Hope Inc. for a set term of years to support any program you might designate. When the trust terminates, the asset is ultimately returned to you (a grantor lead trust) or to your heirs (a non-grantor lead trust). You may claim a charitable tax deduction for funding a non-grantor lead trust. The lead trust is one of the few ways to reduce transfer taxes that would otherwise be due on assets left to your heirs.
- Real Estate / Retained Life Estate
You may gift your personal residence to Project New Hope Inc. and retain the right to live there for the remainder of your life. You would receive an immediate tax deduction, but would continue to maintain the property and pay taxes and even receive any income it may generate. At your death Project New Hope Inc. could use or sell the property.
- Life Insurance Gifts
A direct and simple way to make a planned gift is to name Project New Hope Inc. as the beneficiary to receive all or a portion of the proceeds of a life insurance policy. This method may also offer tax advantages; these vary state from state.
- Appreciated Securities / Gifts of Appreciated Stock
If you have stocks which have greatly appreciated in value since their purchase, you might want to consider them as a charitable gift to Project New Hope Inc. You can deduct the fair market value of qualified non-cash property and pay no capital gains tax on gifts of long-term appreciated property (held for at least a year and a day). This can dramatically reduce the cost of making a charitable gift or increase the amount you can afford to give.
An endowment, as with any good investment, increases in value over time. For the donor, an endowment means your fund will exist in perpetuity. Your fund will grow to keep pace with or exceed inflation should no further contributions be made. For Project New Hope Inc., an endowment preserves capital, provides long-term growth, provides income for Project New Hope Inc., increases purchasing power, and keeps pace with or exceeds inflation.
