Planned Giving Options

Leaving a bequest to Guadalupe Clinic, Inc. in your will or revocable trust

Making a gift through your will or trust allows you to continue your support beyond your life. A donor can make a gift bequest in a specific dollar amount, property, a percentage of the value of their estate, or leave a remainder to Guadalupe Clinic, Inc.

Establishing a charitable lead trust to assist beneficiaries and Guadalupe Clinic, Inc.

In a charitable lead trust asset (cash or securities) are transferred to a trust that pays income from the fund to the organization for a predetermined number of years. At the end of the time period, the trust terminates and the assets are given back to the persons the donor named. The income tax deduction is for payments made annually to the organization.

Designating Guadalupe Clinic, Inc. as a beneficiary in a life insurance policy or IRA, 401(k) or 403(b)

Many times a retirement plan is no longer needed so a donor may name a nonprofit organization as a beneficiary. This allows the donor to alleviate any unnecessary tax burden on their children. Income taxes will be paid on the lump sum distribution or on the income stream from the retirement plan. A donor can avoid this tax burden for their heirs by designating Guadalupe Clinic, Inc. as the beneficiary, leaving non-taxable assets to heirs. Donors may also list Guadalupe Clinic, Inc. as the beneficiary on new policies. You can complete a beneficiary designation form and submit to your retirement plan trustee, manager, or custodian.

Giving to Guadalupe Clinic, Inc. through your retirement

A required minimum distribution (RMD) is the minimum amount a person must withdraw from their account each year. One generally has to start taking withdrawals from an IRA, SEP IRA, SIMPLE IRA or retirement plan account when reaching age 72 (70.5 if one reached that age before Jan. 1, 2020). Using a qualified charitable distribution (QCD)  allows a donor to transfer their RMD to Guadalupe Clinic, Inc. and reduce their tax liability (the SECURE Act, which became law in 2019, also requires distribution of the entire balance within 10 years of the owner’s death for some types of plans).
