Here’s how you name TTUHSC a beneficiary:
- Designate a specific dollar amount to TTUHSC;
- Designate a specific property to TTUHSC;
- Designate a specific percentage of your estate to TTUHSC; or
- Designate a residual bequest to gift TTUHSC in an amount derived from the remainder of your estate after it has provided for loved ones.
Donate your primary home, vacation home, condominium, farm or ranch to TTUHSC and reserve for yourself the right to continue to use this property during your lifetime. In this arrangement, you grant to TTUHSC the remaining interest in your property.
Contribute the remainder of your trust annuity or investment income to TTUHSC. The most common forms of life income gifts include charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts. Discuss the advantages of these gifts with your estate planning advisor, attorney or accountant.
- Charitable Gift Annuities are a contractual arrangement in which TTUHSC agrees to pay you or someone you designate a lifetime income. Income amount is determined by using a fixed percentage of the original gift value, the number of annuitants and their ages. Once established, the annuity contract cannot be enlarged with additional funding. However, additional annuities can be created.
- Charitable Remainder Trust lets you make a gift during your lifetime while receiving income for life for yourself, for any other beneficiary or for a specified term of 20 years or less. At the termination of the trust, TTUHSC receives remaining assets in the trust to be used for your designated purpose. There are two types of charitable remainder trusts: the charitable remainder annuity trust and the charitable remainder unitrust.
Make TTUHSC the owner and beneficiary of your life insurance policy and deduct the cash surrender value as a gift. When you choose the make this gift, all additional premium payments are deductible. Life insurance gifts are not subject to estate taxes.
Loan your name to TTUHSC as a noteworthy individual, business or organization. Naming opportunities include: General endowed funds, endowed scholarships, special initiative endowments, existing buildings, proposed buildings and building components (such as laboratories).
Make TTUHSC the sole beneficiary of your retirement account balance at your death. When your retirement funds become a tax liability, this is the most advantageous and easiest way to convert your retirement asset into a charitable gift.
Donate real estate by transferring the title for your residential, rental, oil and gas or commercial property to TTUHSC. Or, contribute real property through a bargain sale, which allows TTUHSC to buy your property at less than fair market value. Personal property may include artwork, computers, books, jewelry and collections.
