DEFERRED GIVING PROGRAM

The purpose of the Deferred Giving Program is to ensure the continuous operation of the Chickasaw Inkana Foundation (CIF), whose mission is to preserve, protect and interpret Chickasaw history and culture in the historic Chickasaw Homeland, which consists of modern day northern Mississippi, western Tennessee, northwestern Alabama and southwestern Kentucky.  The Foundation’s continued success relies on partnerships and financial support from generous donors who wish to leave a long-lasting legacy.

The Deferred Giving Program provides the opportunity to make a larger gift to the CIF than what might be possible with the donor’s current expendable income.  Another option is to name CIF as the sole beneficiary of all or a portion of a retirement account in a donor’s will.  This directive would remove all or some of the most taxed asset of the donor’s estate after the donor’s passing

THREE COMMON TYPES OF DEFERRED GIFTS


• Gifts that use appreciated assets as a substitute for cash, such as stocks or annuities.


• Gifts that return income to a donor such as a charitable remainder trust.


• Gifts payable upon the donor’s death, such as an outright bequest included inside a last will and testament.

KEY TYPES OF DEFERRED GIFTS

BEQUEST – donors leave a specific amount of money or a percentage of their estates after taxes and gifts to heirs.

LIFE INSURANCE – the death benefit of a whole life insurance policy has a cash value.  Donors can bequeath all of a portion of a fully paid-up policy, either before their last will and testament is finalized, or earlier if they choose.

RETIREMENT PLANS – living donors aged 70 ½ or older can distribute all or a portion of their IRA, 401(k), or other retirement accounts through a direct distribution to CIF.  This will generate charitable income deduction up to $100,000 per taxpayer.

TAX BENEFITS OF DEFERRED GIVING


• Donors can contribute appreciated property and receive a charitable tax deduction for the full market value of the asset (e.g. home) at the time and date the gift is made, without paying capital gains tax on the transfer

• Gifts payable to CIF upon a donor’s passing such as a simple bequest, or life insurance beneficiary designation, or in a retirement account, are exempt from estate tax.
