Giving through a bequest, will or trust is a great way to support organizations important to you.
Make a bequest via your will or trust
A bequest is a simple way to leave a gift that will continue to support The Commons for years to come. Your gift to Community for The Commons will qualify your estate for a charitable deduction equal to the entire amount of the bequest. A bequest can be in the form of a dollar amount, specified asset, and/or a percentage of property remaining in your estate. A bequest can even be contingent upon an event or the existence of certain circumstances. Learn More
Designate Community for The Commons as the beneficiary of your Life Insurance, and/or Retirement Accounts
Did you know you can name Community for The Commons as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy, a bank or brokerage account, or an individual retirement account (IRA)? These gifts can be made by simply contacting your insurer, bank, or broker and asking them for a beneficiary form. You can then designate Community for The Commons as the recipient of all or part of your insurance policy’s death benefit or your bank or IRA account balance. If circumstances change, your beneficiary designation can be amended at any time — so you retain complete control of your assets during your lifetime.
