How Can I Join the Circle?

Make A Bequest

By making a bequest in your will or revocable living trust, you can allocate any amount, percentage, or the remainder of your estate or other assets to Columbia Springs. Please contact your estate planning attorney for more information.

Designate a Retirement Plan

You can name Columbia Springs as a beneficiary of your retirement account as an easy and mutually beneficial way to give, as tax benefits may apply.

Using Your IRA:

  •  If you’re 70½ or older, you may be eligible to make a tax-free distribution from your IRA to Columbia Springs to be used to satisfy your required minimum distribution.
  • If you’re under the age of 70½, you can use your IRA to support our work by making a withdrawal and donating the proceeds after taxes.

For more information on how to make gifts from your IRA please talk with your tax consultant and contact our Development Team.

Life Insurance Policy

When you name the Columbia Springs as a beneficiary of your life insurance policies, your insurance proceeds will be sent to us, removing them from your taxable estate.

For more information, please contact your financial or tax advisor. Although Columbia Springs cannot give legal or tax advice, we can help you understand your options for making a legacy gift. Please contact our Development Team for more information.
