Gift in Your Will or Living Trust

A simple way to make a long-term impact

A gift in your will is a meaningful way to support the AbleGamers Charity. It is also a simple, flexible, and affordable way to help AbleGamers combat social isolation and improve the quality of life for people with disabilities ‚ÄĒ in your community and nationwide.

You can complete your gift by including just one sentence in your will. And because your gift is not realized until after your lifetime, it costs you nothing today. Finally, if your life or financial circumstances change, you can amend your gift or change your mind at any time.

Sample Language

You can complete your gift by including just one sentence in your will.

“I give to AbleGamers Charity, a nonprofit corporation currently located at 179 E. Burr Blvd Suite Q, Kearneysville, WV 25430, or its successor thereto, ______________ [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.”

Beneficiary Designation

Make a gift in a few easy steps

Not everyone wants to commit to making a gift in their wills or estates. Some prefer the increased flexibility that a beneficiary designation provides by using:

  • IRAs and retirement plans
  • Life insurance policies
  • Donor advised funds
  • Commercial annuities

It is very simple to name AbleGamers Charity as a beneficiary. Start by requesting a change-of-beneficiary form from your policy administrator or download the form from your provider’s website. Make your desired changes and return the form to establish your gift.

Giving From Your IRA

A tax-saving way to help AbleGamers

Make a difference today and save on taxes. It’s possible when you support the AbleGamers through your IRA.

A special opportunity for those 70 1/2 years old and older
You can give any amount (up to a maximum of $100,000) per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as AbleGamers without having to pay income taxes on the money. Gifts of any value $100,000 or less are eligible for this benefit and you can feel good knowing that you are making a difference at AbleGamers. This popular gift option is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover, but you may also see it referred to as a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD for short.

Charitable Remainder Trust

Solutions for Large Donations

If you have built a sizable estate and are looking for ways to receive reliable payments, consider a charitable remainder trust. This type of trust provides you or other named individuals income each year for life or a period not exceeding 20 years from assets you give to the trust you create. At the end of the trust term, the balance in the trust goes to the AbleGamers Charity.

These types of gifts may offer you tax benefits and the option for income. There are two ways to receive payments, and each has its own benefits:

The annuity trust pays you, each year, the same dollar amount you choose at the start. Your payments stay the same, regardless of fluctuations in trust investments.

The unitrust pays you, each year, a variable amount based on a fixed percentage of the fair market value of the trust assets. The amount of your payments is redetermined annually. If the value of the trust increases, so do your payments. If the value decreases, however, so will your payments.

Memorials and Tribute Gifts

Honor someone special with a gift in their name.

If you have a loved one who has been impacted by the AbleGamers Charity, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor them or celebrate a special occasion, such as a birthday, while supporting our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and will make a difference.

A gift in memory or honor of someone special can be made here.

Donor Advised Funds

Simplify your giving.

A donor advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to the AbleGamers Charity and other qualified charities. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to make an immediate impact or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts.

You can also create a lasting legacy by naming the AbleGamers Charity the beneficiary of the entire account or a percentage of the fund. With a percentage, you can create a family legacy of giving by naming your loved ones as your successor to continue recommending grants to charitable organizations. Contact your fund administrator for a beneficiary form.

Charitable Lead Trust

Protect your assets.

If you want to make an impact now at AbleGamers Charity and also provide for your family later, consider setting up a charitable lead trust. You transfer cash or other assets to a trust that makes payments to the AbleGamers Charity for a period of time. When the term is up, the remaining trust passes to your family or other beneficiaries you select.

There are two ways that charitable lead trusts make payments to the AbleGamers Charity:

A charitable lead annuity trust pays a fixed amount each year to AbleGamers and is more attractive when interest rates are low.

A¬†charitable lead unitrust¬†pays a¬†variable¬†amount each year to AbleGamers based on the value of the assets in the trust. With a unitrust, if the trust’s assets go up in value, for example, the payments to AbleGamers go up as well.

Endowed Gifts

Your gift can last forever.

An endowment gift to the AbleGamers Charity today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to an endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at AbleGamers. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.
