Designate and Donate — Introduction

Gifts Anyone Can Make

There are several simple and savvy ways that you can support ADLF without reducing your income or diminishing your savings.

Think about using assets that can be transferred to ADLF without legal expense. You may have bank investments, retirement, insurance, stock, or mutual-fund accounts that you can use to accomplish your charitable goals. All of these assets can be transferred by completing a POD (Pay on Death) or TOD (Transfer on Death) form. Some companies also call these beneficiary designation forms. This completed form tells the account custodian what to do with the account after your passing.

You can name ADLF in your long term plans today without a negative impact on cash flow or lifestyle. Keep it simple and savvy. Ask your bank for a POD form. Ask your retirement plan, investment account or insurance company for a TOD form. Designate and donate with any of these assets. It takes less than five minutes of your time.

Benefits of Naming ADLF In Your Long-Term Plans

  • You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime.
  • You can make a gift and leave your cash flow and current financial planning unchanged.
