When you give to Kinship House, you ensure that some of the most vulnerable children in Oregon received the care they need as they seek a forever home. There are approximately 3000 children in foster care in the tri-county area and Kinship House serves some of those children who need extra support during their time in foster care. There are many ways to invest in the well-being of these vulnerable children and provide tax benefits to you:
Make a Bequest
Allocate any amount, percentage, or a remainder of your estate or other assets to Kinship House through your will or revocable living trust. It’s easy to do and donors who leave a bequest can take an estate tax deduction of 100 percent of the gift’s value. This is a perfect way to benefit Kinship House when you no longer need your assets yourself.
Designate a Retirement Plan
Name Kinship House as a beneficiary of your retirement account as a way to give back and gain tax savings. IRA accounts listing Kinship House as the beneficiary are free of estate and income taxes.
List us on your Life Insurance Policy
Naming Kinship House as a beneficiary of your life insurance policies gives the insurance proceeds to us and removes them from your taxable estate.
