Ways to Make a Planned Gift to DakotAbilities

Make a difference and help continue the mission of DakotAbilities by making a planned gift.  A planned gift is typically a gift that is promised now, but will be received at a future time.  There are many types of planned gifts, many of which provide income tax savings to the donor and their heirs, and ultimately, a gift to DakotAbilities.

Ways to Make a Planned Gift to DakotAbilities:

  • Gifts by Will

Perhaps the most common and easy way, a bequest is a method of making a charitable gift from your estate by naming DakotAbilities as a beneficiary in your will.  If you choose to make a gift through your Will, the following language will be helpful to you and your attorney:  "I give, bequeath and diverse ____% of my Estate or $____ to DakotAbilities".

  • Charitable Gift Annuity

Make a gift to DakotAbilities and receive income for the rest of your life and a current tax deduction.

  • Charitable Remainder Trusts

A charitable remainder trust is a way to make an irrevocable gift to DakotAbilities and receive some immediate tax benefits and still receive annual income distributions from your assets during your lifetime.

  • Make a Charitable IRA Rollover

Donors 70 ½ years or older may transfer up to $100,000 directly to DakotAbilities.  The transfer is not included in taxable income and qualifies for their required minimum distribution.

  • Life Insurance

Name DakotAbilities as the beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy or choose to purchase a charitable life insurance policy.

 There are numerous ways to establish a planned gift.  We encourage you to talk with an estate planning specialist, tax advisor, or lawyer to determine what way works best for you.
