BEQUESTS

One of the easiest ways to provide enduring support to the Museum is to include a bequest in your will or trust that names the Skydiving Museum & Hall of Fame as a beneficiary.  A bequest is not subject to federal or state estate or inheritance taxes and is deductible in calculating your taxable estate.  

RETIREMENT FUND ACCOUNTS

Designating the Skydiving Museum & Hall of Fame to receive any benefits remaining in your retirement plan or using them during your lifetime to fund a charitable gift to the Museum may effectively reduce the taxes that will otherwise be imposed on those accounts.

GIFT ANNUITY – LIFE INCOME PLANS

This type of gift is very easy.  You make an irrevocable contribution of cash or marketable securities and in return are paid an income for life. After your death, the remaining principal will pass to the Museum to be used as you have instructed. These gift annuities result in an immediate tax deduction for a portion of the value of the gift.

CHARITABLE TRUSTS

If you establish a charitable trust to make regular lifetime payments to you and others, you can designate the Skydiving Museum & Hall of Fame to receive the remainder, realizing lifetime security and an immediate tax deduction for a portion of the value of the trust.

TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY

Gifts of tangible personal property, such as artifacts and memorabilia, are generally eligible for the same tax benefits as gifts of securities. But, there are special procedures. Please contact a Museum Trustee or Nancy Kemble, Museum Administrator if you are considering such a gift.
