Donate Retirement Assets
You can help ensure a better world for people living with epilepsy (and reduce tax liability for loved ones) by naming the Epilepsy Foundation as a beneficiary of your 401(k), Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or other qualified retirement plan.
Tax-deferred retirement plan assets can be subject to estate and income taxes, thereby reducing the value of these assets left to your children or someone other than your spouse by as much as 75 percent. Your heirs avoid this double-taxation when your gift benefits the Epilepsy Foundation.
Simply ask your retirement plan administrator to designate the Epilepsy Foundation as sole or partial beneficiary:
The Epilepsy Foundation Tax ID # 52-0856660 8301 Professional Place Landover, MD 20785
Or transfer the balance of your retirement plan to a charitable remainder trust. This allows you to make a significant contribution towards a cure for epilepsy, while providing ongoing income for a loved one after your lifetime.
Be sure to consult your financial advisor and always consider your family's needs first. If you choose to make a gift to the Epilepsy Foundation, please know your generosity will make a positive difference for the millions of people with epilepsy, and bring us one step closer to a cure.
