Your support changes lives every day. When planning a gift for SOS Children’s Villages Florida in your long-term financial or estate plans, you will help ensure that we’ll be here to carry out our mission for many years to come. Here are some popular and easy ways you can give to SOS Children’s Villages Florida that will leave a legacy and transform children’s lives for many years to come.
Be sure to use our correct legal name and address, and Federal Tax ID in your document: SOS Children’s Villages Florida, Inc., 3681 NW 59th Place, Coconut Creek FL 33073 Federal ID # 65-0080301.
GIVING SECURITIESIt’s more and more common for people to give stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, and because of tax considerations, you can often give appreciated assets, and enjoy the tax deduction, rather than paying capital gains tax. Please let us know if you plan to give securities, so we can properly thank you. Please contact us for a stock donation form.
GIVING THROUGH YOUR WILL OR TRUSTYour will can be a way to make thoughtful gifts, in addition to being one of the simplest methods to distribute your estate to loved ones and causes you care about. By remembering SOS Children’s Villages Florida in your will or your trust, you can continue to support our work beyond your lifetime.
GIVING THROUGH LIFE INSURANCEPeople often have life insurance policies they no longer need. Policies taken out to protect mortgages which have since been paid or educational plans that have been completed, for example, make excellent gifts. You can donate your policy to SOS Children’s Villages Florida, and make an extraordinary gift to continue to provide foster children with a loving home, education, and access to quality health care.
GIVING THROUGH A TAX-FREE IRA ROLLOVER IF YOU ARE OVER AGE 70½In December 2015, the IRA Charitable Rollover became permanent – allowing individuals over age 70½ to rollover, tax-free, up to $100,000 from their IRA to charity. You can donate directly from your IRA to SOS Children’s Villages Florida and reduce your tax bill.
Simply ask your IRA administrator to transfer a tax-free amount of your choice from your account to SOS Children’s Villages Florida using our Tax ID Number: 65-0080301. Your gift will count toward your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). You can choose to allocate a portion or all of your RMD to support our mission (up to $100,000 per year).
