Gifts by Will or Trust

Gifts by Will or Trust

A charitable gift from your estate is a favored method of giving that enables you to achieve your financial goals, maintain control of your assets, and benefit Jamestowne Society.
Naming Us in Your Assets

Naming Us in Your Assets

While you may transfer many of your assets through your will or living trust, a document called a beneficiary designation controls distribution of your retirement plans, life insurance policies, commercial annuities and a variety of financial accounts.
The IRA Gift (QCD)

The IRA Gift (QCD)

The IRA charitable rollover (also called the Qualified Charitable Distribution, or QCD) is a great way to make a tax-free gift to Jamestowne Society.
Charitable Gift Annuities

Charitable Gift Annuities

A charitable gift annuity provides fixed payments to you or others you name for life in exchange for your gift of cash or securities.
Retained Life Estate

Retained Life Estates

Donate your home, farm or a second home to Jamestowne Society and receive an immediate income tax charitable deduction, while retaining the right to live in your home for the rest of your life. If you itemize your deductions instead of taking the standard deduction you could save significant income taxes.
Bargain Sale

Bargain Sale

Receive immediate cash and make a gift to Jamestowne Society by selling to us a valuable asset, such as real estate, for less than it is worth.
