Making an Investment through Planned Giving

Making an Investment

Planned giving is a way to support BIAV now and in the future – your legacy gift is an investment in the value that BIAV is able to provide to the brain injury community.

Planned Giving

How can you help through a planned gift?

Through a Bequest: A gift made as part of a will or trust.

Through Retirement Accounts: A retirement plan can be a tax-efficient and simple way of including BIAV in your estate planning. You may also be able to make a gift to BIAV with a "qualified charitable distribution" or "IRA charitable rollover" from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA), and take advantage of tax savings. Best for charitably minded people with large qualified retirement plans and/or IRAs.

Through Other Planned Giving Methods: There are a number of ways estates can be gifted to BIAV through things like Charitable Lead Trusts, Charitable Remainder Trusts, Donor-Advised Funds and/or Life Insurance. If you want to know more, BIAV has resources for additional information from financial advisors on these ways to donate.
