The easiest way to become a member of the Heritage Society is to name Hocking as a beneficiary of your retirement account or as a beneficiary in your will or trust. Sample bequest language below will help you complete your plans. Other planned gifts might include life income gifts, such as charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder unitrusts, or gifts of life insurance.
Please allow us to thank you and welcome you by letting us know you have included a gift to Hocking College in your future plans, or if you'd like to do so.
Through a provision in your written and executed will, you can make a gift in the form of cash, securities, real estate or personal property. There are many types of bequests. Choose the one that best fits your needs and intentions.
Naming the Hocking College Foundation as the beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan asset such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, Keogh, profit-sharing pension plan or other donor-advised funds, will accomplish a charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings.
You can turn underperforming assets (stock, cash in a savings account, CDs, savings bonds, etc.) into a gift to Hocking College that provides income to you. Your Charitable Gift Annuity will give you quarterly, fixed payments for life and tax benefits, too.
When you donate appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares instead of cash, you'll receive charitable deductions at full, fair market value while reducing capital gains impact.
If youre 70-1/2 or older, you can make a gift directly from your IRA to Hocking College. While there is no charitable deduction for a rollover gift, you do avoid the income tax on the donated portion of your required minimum distribution.
Like stock, the fair market value of gifts of appreciated assets such as real estate, artwork, and other well curated collections, can be deducted from your income tax today and reduce your estate taxes in the future.
There are many giving options available to you, such as naming Hocking College as a beneficiary in your will and charitable gift annuities that provide steady income for you and your family during your lifetime. For more information, please find our contact info below, or submit this form.
