St. Louis Center


Estate & Planned Gifts

Designate St. Louis Center as the beneficiary of your asset through your will or trust.

Gifts of Stock
Gifts of publicly traded stock that has appreciated in value allow you to eliminate capital gains taxes while also receiving a tax deduction for your gift. Plus, you can specify an area that you would like the proceeds to support or have them contributed to the general fund.

Gifts of Retirement Assets
Making a gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from an IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax deferred plan, can be an excellent way to contribute to St. Louis Center.

Donors aged 70 ½ and older can make direct distributions of up to $100,000 per year from their IRAs and ROTH IRAs to St. Louis Center, without incurring income tax on the withdrawal.

Gifts of Life Insurance
A life insurance policy that is no longer needed can be transferred to St. Louis Center and benefit you through a tax deduction.

Charitable Beneficiary Designation of Life Insurance Policy
You can make a significant contribution to St. Louis Center by naming the Center as beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy.

Life Income Gifts:

Life income gifts make it possible for donors to support St. Louis Center and also provide income to the donor or others at the same time. To establish a life income gift, a donor irrevocably transfers an asset to St. Louis Center. Periodic payments are made to the donor for life or for a number of years. The assets are ultimately used by St. Louis Center for the donor’s stated charitable purpose.

Charitable Gift Annuity
A charitable gift annuity provides fixed, partially tax-free payments to the donor.

Charitable Remainder Trusts
A charitable remainder trust provides income to the beneficiaries for life or for a set number of years.
