Some of the most common ways to give to WFSA.
Donor advised funds offer you the opportunity to back what you believe in and benefit projects you recommend.
You make tax-deductible gifts to your fund when it is most advantageous to you, and make distributions from fund to the organizations of interest to you when it is most convenient for you. It can really simplify the way you make gifts.
Making a gift of securities to WFSA (during or after your lifetime) offers you the opportunity to help others while realizing many important benefits for yourself. Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for more than one year.

So you have money saved in an employee retirement plan, IRA or tax-sheltered annuity? Each of these retirement plan assets contains income that has yet to be taxed; your beneficiaries will owe the income tax at your death, totaling up to 35 percent. This may be reason enough to consider giving your loved ones less heavily taxed assets and leaving your retirement plan assets to charity instead.

Your need for life insurance changes as time passes, making way for a new opportunity for its use. if you no longer need the coverage to protect your loved ones, consider changing your policy’s beneficiary to support our work.
