A Smart Gift to Leave to Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Foundation
We Can Receive Your Commercial Annuity Tax-Free
Like retirement plan assets, commercial annuities provide for tax-deferred growth while the owner is living. Because distributions from commercial annuities are subject to income taxes, they are often considered among the best assets to leave to charity. Due to our tax-exempt status, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Foundation can receive your commercial annuity completely tax-free. The best way to give a commercial annuity in support of our work after your lifetime is to name us as beneficiary.
Making this gift is as simple as updating your beneficiary form with your bank or insurance company. You can designate us as the primary beneficiary for a percentage or specific amount. You can also make us the contingent beneficiary so that we will receive the balance of your policy only if your primary beneficiary doesn’t survive you.
An unrestricted gift to support comprehensive programs and services across the entire continuum of cancer care allowing the Cancer Center team to designate where it's needed most at the time.
A restricted gift to support a specific philanthropic pillar, program and/or a specific diagnosis within our focus areas of prevention, research, innovation, education, patient care patient support and survivorship.
A minimum gift of $100,000 establishes a Named Endowed Fund. You can create the fund in your name or in the name of someone you wish to honor or remember. The Fund can be designated for comprehensive support or priority support based on what is most meaningful to you. For further information on this key form of giving, please contact the Development Office.
Matching funds can be a powerful tool in helping the Cancer Center leverage your gift. This fund can be used to match donations to establish endowed funds, securing innovative, comprehensive care for patients today and in the future.
