Legacy Gifts to Elderwerks


You Can Support Elderwerks Without Impacting Your Current Lifestyle

Did you know that you can support Elderwerks by making a planned legacy gift to Elderwerks? With your donation you are helping local older adults, seniors, and families obtain complimentary support through social services, activities, education, Elderwerks Senior Resource Directory, and navigation assistance.

Call Elderwerks at 855-462-0100 to inform us of your decision to support Elderwerks families. Some giving options include:

IRA/Pension Benefit
Think about transferring assets to Elderwerks that can be payable upon death. These can include bank investments, retirement, stocks, mutual funds, insurance, or any other asset that you want to use to meet your charitable goals.

  • You can offer a gift with your appreciated securities.
  • Make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime.
  • Designate Elderwerks and donate.
  • If you need to preserve your assets, you can plan a gift that only takes effect after your other obligations are fulfilled through your Will or Trust.
  • You can make a significant donation to Elderwerks by transferring ownership of a life insurance policy. This will provide an income tax deduction equal to the cash surrender value of the policy.
  • You can give a gift from your retirement plan. Giving Elderwerks assets that are subject to double taxation will leave more for your family.

Trusts, Wills, and Gifts
The benefits of choosing Elderwerks as a beneficiary in your estate planning:

  • You can make a gift that costs you nothing.
  • You can give a gift that doesn't touch your current finances and cash flow.
  • You can make a gift with assets that you appreciate to save on taxes.
  • Charitable giving in your retirement plan may help your heirs avoid a large tax burden.

An endowment fund can support Elderwerks through perpetuity. The original gift stays intact, and the income generated is used to benefit Elderwerks families.

Life Insurance
Funds from a life insurance policy can be gifted to Elderwerks.
