Provide for us in Your Will
One of the simplest ways to make a lasting gift to NSDF is to provide for us in your will or estate plan by stating that a certain sum be conveyed to NSDF from your estate (a specific bequest) or that a percentage of your estate – after specific bequests have been made – be conveyed to NSDF from your estate (a residual percentage bequest). NSDF’s tax ID number is 92-0078890. Your attorney may find the following language helpful when drafting provisions to fulfill your estate gift to the North Star Dance Foundation.
“I hereby give to the North Star Dance Foundation, a tax-exempt organization as described in Subsection 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, located in Fairbanks, Alaska, the sum of $_______________ (a specific bequest) (or ________ percent of my residual estate (a residual percentage bequest), to be used to support the North Star Dance Foundation.”
Name us as a Beneficiary
You can name NSDF as a beneficiary to your life insurance policy. You can also donate the entire policy to NSDF and in return take a charitable deduction for the cash value of the policy.
Make a Charitable Gift Annuity
This enables you to make a gift to NSDF while you receive fixed annual payments for life. There may also be tax benefits to you.
Donors should consult with their attorney when drafting their will and other legal documents and with their financial advisor when preparing estate plans.
