Gifts of Retirement Assets

Donating part or all of your unused retirement assets, such as your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift to Open Doors USA.

If you are like most people, you probably will not use all of your retirement assets during your lifetime. You can make a gift of your unused retirement assets to help further our mission.

Benefits of gifts of retirement assets

  • Avoid potential estate tax on retirement assets
  • Your heirs would avoid income tax on any retirement assets funded on a pre-tax basis
  • Receive potential estate tax savings from an estate tax deduction

How to make a gift of retirement assets

To leave your retirement assets to Open Doors USA, you will need to complete a beneficiary designation form provided by your retirement plan custodian. If you designate Open Doors USA as beneficiary, we will benefit from the full value of your gift because a charitable gift of IRA assets will not be taxed at your death. Also, your estate may benefit from an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift.

More on gifts of retirement assets

Did you know that 60%-70% of your retirement assets may be taxed if you leave them to your heirs at your death? Another option may be to leave your heirs assets that receive a step up in basis (subject to tax laws), such as real estate and stock, and give a gift of your retirement assets to Open Doors USA. As a charity, we are not taxed upon receiving an IRA or other retirement plan assets. Be sure to read the benefits of a Charitable IRA Rollover (also called a Qualified Charitable Distribution) in the "How to Give" section of this website under the title of "IRA Charitable Rollover."
