Have You Remembered CAA in Your Will?
If you believe in CAA’s mission and you want to ensure it will continue to benefit generations to come, please consider a planned gift.
Taking the form of cash, bonds, marketable securities, or property, a planned gift can provide important financial and tax benefits to both you and CAA. Planned giving helps you maximize the tax benefits of your charitable giving while allowing you to provide a gift that you may not have thought possible. Regardless of your age or income, you can benefit from estate planning, and a planned gift can be an important tool in your overall financial strategy.
There are many creative ways to provide a contribution to CAA while enhancing and safeguarding your own financial situation.One of the simplest and most common forms of planned giving is a bequest, which leaves cash or a percentage of one’s estate to a designated tax-exempt organization so you can make a major gift that will cost you nothing in your lifetime by simply including CAA in your will.
Planned giving to CAA can help you broaden your philanthropic contributions, save on estate taxes, and bequeath more to your heirs.
CAA will publicly recognize members and friends who commit to leaving such a legacy in a number of ways, including donor listings, invitations to exclusive events, and a certificate of recognition.Participation can also be anonymous.
To make an unrestricted bequest to CAA in your will, we suggest the following language:
I give and bequeath _____________ dollars or ____% of my estate (and/or the following described property ______________) to the College Art Association, 50 Broadway, New York, NY 10004, for its general purposes.
Planned giving should, of course, be coordinated with your attorney. We would also be delighted to work with you to structure a gift that best meets your goals. For more information, please contact JoAnn Wong, Institutional and Individual Giving Manager at 212-392-4411.
The College Art Association is a not-for-profit tax-exempt 501(c)(3) entity. CAA's most recent 990 may be viewed or downloaded from GuideStar.
