Planned Giving

There are just a few steps needed to start planning your gift:

Legal Name: CESC, Inc.

Address: 2650 Municipal Way, Tallahassee, FL 32304

Federal Tax ID Number: 47-4589916

An IRA Charitable Rollover is a type of gift that would be put to immediate use, so you can see the impact of your gift during your lifetime. A gift from your IRA can satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution and the gift amount may be excluded from your taxable income. Your qualified charitable distribution incurs no federal income tax, and the asset is no longer part of your estate for tax purposes.

If you are 72 years old or older, then you qualify to take advantage of this opportunity and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity, such as CESC, Inc., without having to pay income taxes on the gift. The transfer would not create taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions. This type of gift cannot be deferred or implemented prior to the qualified age.

Name CESC, Inc. as full or partial beneficiary of a life insurance policy.

Naming CESC as a beneficiary of your retirement account (401(k) or IRA) is an easy way to make a significant, lasting gift that may not be possible during your lifetime.

Designate a gift amount or portion of your estate to CESC in your will or trust.

CESC has an endowment held at the Community Foundation of North Florida. Contact the Community Foundation to donate to the CESC endowment directly.
