Whether you would like to support our work today or benefit us after your lifetime, there are charitable plans that let you provide for your family and support the Astronomical Society of the Pacific. Here are some of the most popular charitable plans to consider:
Structure your will to provide for your family first. Then include a gift to the charitable organizations you love. Just a few simple sentences and a meeting with an estate planning attorney are all it takes.
If you'd like to support the Astronomical Society of the Pacific and receive steady payments for life, a charitable gift annuity may be right for you.
If you give stocks you've owned for more than one year that are worth more than when you purchased them, you'll qualify for significant tax advantages.
Consider making the Astronomical Society of the Pacific a beneficiary of a percentage of your retirement plan assets. Then, leave less heavily taxed assets to your loved ones.
With a charitable remainder trust, you can receive income each year (either fixed or variable) from assets you place in the trust. After your lifetime, the balance in the trust goes to the charities of your choice.
