Do you ever struggle to find the perfect Holiday gift for loved ones, only to settle for something just so you can cross them off your shopping list?
We’ve all done it—given a gift that we know the receiver won’t love. This season, consider a gift they won’t want to return. If you know someone who values the meaningful work we do at Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America, consider making a donation in his or her honor. These tribute gifts are also a great way to remember loved ones who are no longer with us.
How to make a tribute gift
There are three easy ways to give a tribute gift to PMMA, none of which requires a trip to the mall:
- Make a gift today—An outright gift can help fund our immediate needs or an upcoming project. The financial benefits include an income tax charitable deduction when you itemize deductions on your federal income tax return, and the possible elimination of capital gains tax.
- Make a gift through your estate plan— Include a gift in your will or living trust, stating that a certain dollar amount or percentage of your estate will pass to us after your lifetime in honor of your loved one.
- Make a gift that lives on forever—Honorary endowments can be made now or through your estate plan. Endowments are structured so that a small portion of your gift, rather than the whole amount, is used each year to fund a particular To perpetuate the fund forever, the majority of the fund always remains intact and is invested for the future.
