Planning a gift to NHS College memorialize your support during your lifetime and beyond. Contact Stephanie Packineau at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about planned giving.
Establish a Memorial or Honorarium
A memorial remembers friends and loved ones who were passionate about Native American culture and education. Today, families often suggest that friends contribute to a memorial fund set up in the name of the deceased in lieu of sending flowers. NHS College will assist in creating a memorial. When gifts are received, a special acknowledgment will be sent to whomever you indicate.
Include NHSC in Your Will or Estate Plans
Your attorney can help you determine the language best suited to your circumstances to provide for NHSC in your will. Please make sure you contact us with your intentions.
In many cases, leaving your legacy can be as easy as adding the following bequest language to your will:
I, [name], of [city, state, zip code], give, devise and bequeath to Nueta Hidatsa Sahnish College [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.
Establish a Trust
Income-producing trusts are a valuable option for donors who wish to benefit from their gift. Assets are put in a trust which pays a minimum of 5% annually to you or other non-charitable beneficiaries. When those payments are no longer made, through a fixed term or at one’s death, the trust’s remainder goes to NHSC.
Giving stocks and bonds that you have owned for more than one year which have increased in value can provide strong benefits. You may deduct the full market value of the securities and avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciation. Your deduction is up to 30% of your income, with a five-year carryover.
401K or IRA accounts can also be used as charitable gifts. Any amount left in these accounts at the death of an individual is otherwise taxed as ordinary income and then exposed to estate taxes as well. Non-profits can be named as beneficiaries or contingent beneficiaries for these retirement accounts.
Name a Building or Program on Your Life Insurance
Making a gift of a life insurance policy, existing or new, can be an economical way to give. Naming a building on the NHSC campus or a specific program as both owner and beneficiary of a paid-up policy entitles you to a deduction equal to the policy’s cost basis. Making a gift of a policy that is not paid-up provides you with a tax deduction approximately equal to the policy’s cash surrender value.
