Will or Trust. Please consider designating the Nevada State College Foundation as a beneficiary or contingent beneficiary in your will or living trust. If you do not have a trusts and estates attorney, please contact us so that we can give you some names of qualified attorneys.
Outright Gift. A gift of cash or specific property to the Foundation can be provided for in your will or trust. This can be as simple as including in your will a declaration saying, "I leave $50,000 to the Nevada State College Foundation [EIN 88-0464591]" or including a provision in your trust stating, "The Trustee shall distribute the property known as 1234 Maple Street, Las Vegas, Nevada 89101 to the Nevada State College Foundation [EIN 88-0464591]."
Charitable Remainder Trust. A trust that provides annual annuity or unitrust distributions to one or more designated beneficiaries for a specified term can ultimately be distributed to the foundation after that term expires. For estate tax purposes, the actuarial value of the remainder interest that goes to charity will be deductible. For more information about charitable remainder trusts, click here.
Charitable Lead Trust. A trust that provides annual annuity or unitrust distributions to one or the Foundation for a specified term can ultimately be distributed to your family or other beneficiaries after that term expires. For estate tax purposes, the actuarial value of the charitable interest will be deductible. For more information about charitable lead trusts, click here.
Retirement Funds. If you make the Nevada State College Foundation the beneficiary (or contingent beneficiary) of a percentage of your IRA or retirement plan, the Foundation will receive all of the funds without reduction for the income tax or the estate tax, which may otherwise apply to living beneficiaries. For a number of reasons, it is best to have the Foundation named as a direct beneficiary rather than receiving the IRA or retirement funds indirectly through a trust or estate.
Life Insurance. If you make the Nevada State College Foundation the beneficiary (or contingent beneficiary) of an insurance policy (or for a percentage thereof), the Foundation will receive all of the funds without reduction for the estate tax, that might apply to living beneficiaries.
Tax-Exempt Number. The Foundation's tax identification number (also "employer identification number" or "EIN") is 88-0464591.
