A person wishing to support the Limb Preservation Foundation through a workplace retirement plan, IRA, or life insurance policy, should request a Beneficiary Change Form from his/her company or plan administrator. Beneficiary Change forms are often available online. Please indicate the desired gift percentage and return/submit the completed form.
The Limb Preservation Foundation also encourages estate gifts through other arrangements, including Charitable Remainder and Charitable Lead Trusts. The Limb Preservation Foundation prefers not to serve as Trustee for these gifts.
Purpose of Gift
People who make estate or outright gifts may designate their gift for a specific purpose. Opportunities include the following:
- General Support
- Patient Assistance
All gifts help sustain the long-term needs of individuals with and at risk for limb loss. In the absence of specific instruction, a legacy gift will be used in the area of greatest need.
In addition, a person who contributes $50,000 or more may establish a Named Endowed Fund. As highlighted above, a Named Endowed Fund could support medical care or financial assistance or fund a program area of choice. Typically, these funds are named in honor of the donor and/or family, or perhaps to honor another loved one(s).
In some cases, a client may allow an advisor to share his/her name with us, knowing we will not publish or promote the legacy gift in any way. In other situations, an advisor can play a helpful role in forwarding a ‘Thank You’ letter to a client, while simultaneously preserving client anonymity.
If your client moves forward with an estate gift, we would appreciate any guidance about the best way to share our gratitude.
If you have any questions at all, please contact Marcy Rubic, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (303) 429-0688.
