Do you want to leave an impact on The Gathering Place (TGP) that will be felt by generations to come? Join us today in shaping the future and making the fight against poverty and homelessness part of your lasting legacy. A Legacy Gift supports TGP in continuing our work until all of our members have stability and security. It also allows you the freedom to plan now and give later, making your long-term philanthropic goals more accessible. At TGP, there are several ways to give a Legacy Gift, and our team is excited to help find the best option for you.
A gift in your will
Naming TGP as a beneficiary in your will allows you to impact our members for generations to come. Wills help determine where your assets will go after your lifetime. You can leave a specific amount or designate a percentage of your estate. Either way, your gift will empower our continued work.
Sample will language
“I [name], of [city, state, zip], bequeath the sum of $[ ] or [ ] percent of my estate to The Gathering Place, a nonprofit corporation located at 1535 High Street, Denver, CO 80218 and Federal Tax ID # 84-1021059 for its unrestricted use and purpose.”
A gift from your trust
Creating a trust allows you to transfer the ownership of your assets directly to TGP. There are two different kinds of trusts. A revocable trust allows you to make an immediate contribution during your lifetime and allows you to change your mind at any point if circumstances change. An irrevocable trust allows you to transfer ownership of your assets permanently.
Sample trust language
“I give, devise, and bequeath the sum of $[ ] to The Gathering Place, a nonprofit corporation located at 1535 High Street, Denver, CO 80218 and Federal Tax ID # 84-1021059, for its unrestricted use and purpose.”
Your retirement plans, financial accounts, annuities, and life insurance policies can all help ensure members of our community have access to stability and security.
Donating non-cash assets like real estate or personal property can provide significant tax benefits while advancing our mission.
Qualified charitable distributions
If you’re 72 or older, you can give up to $100,000 per year from your IRA, allowing you to exclude the amount of our RMD from your income.
As with any financial decision, please consult your estate lawyer or financial adviser beforehand. We are happy to connect you with these resources if needed. If you have already included us in your will, or have any additional questions regarding legacy giving, please let us know!
