Many donors use qualified retirement account assets in their charitable gift planning. This is an easy gift to make and has distinct planning advantages.
Retirement account assets left to loved ones may be subject to higher taxation than other types of assets. By using retirement account assets to make a gift (and selecting alternative assets to leave to family members), you may be able to reduce taxes that otherwise would be imposed on those assets and leave more to your intended beneficiaries.

Making a planned gift—whether by including a bequest to the Museum in your will or by naming CHM as the beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust, life insurance policy, or retirement fund—provides essential support for the Museum’s future. Planned gifts can offer significant tax advantages and in some cases generate lifetime income for you or your chosen beneficiary.
