- Leave a gift in your will. This costs you nothing now. Include the American Osteopathic Foundation to receive a specific percentage of your estate. You can also take care of family first and name the AOF as a contingent beneficiary, so that students, physicians, educators, or researchers will benefit after your loved ones.
- Make a gift directly from your IRA. If you’re age 70 ½ or older, you can save on income tax by making a donation to the AOF directly from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA).
- Make a gift by beneficiary designation. Name the AOF a beneficiary of any of these types of accounts, and you can help the AOF for years to come:
- Retirement Accounts
- Life Insurance Policies
- Bank or Brokerage Account
- Certificates of Deposit
- Donor Advised Funds
- Common Stock
As with any planned gift, please consult with your attorney and/or tax advisor before making any decision.
