Georgetown Village thanks you for helping to ensure our important work for years to come with a legacy gift. These gifts offer tax wise and flexible ways to extend your support of GV into the future and are a perfect complement to lifetime giving.
You don’t have to be wealthy to make a gift. Two of the easiest ways to support GV are with a bequest or by designating GV a beneficiary of your retirement plan.
Bequests are a simple but powerful way to help ensure the future of GV. They are flexible and revocable gifts in your will or living trust that do not affect cash flow during your lifetime and may not be subject to estate tax. Remembering GV can be specified as a fixed dollar amount or a percentage or residual of the estate after specific bequests have been made and estate expenses paid.
Another simple legacy gift is to designate GV as a beneficiary of your retirement plan by completing a beneficiary designation document. This revocable gift is not restricted by age, does not affect cash flow during your lifetime, and may eliminate income and estate taxes on your retirement assets.
We know that in order for GV to continue its success, support must come from several sources -membership dues, annual fundraising, and legacy gifts.
