La Salle University offers several ways for you to support the school in creative ways:
Bequest – You want to leave money to support La Salle University students in your will. You also want the flexibility to change your will in the event that life circumstances changes. You can do both. A gift in your estate plan to La Salle University costs you nothing now and could help your heirs.
Beneficiary Designation – Not everyone wants to commit to making a gift in his or her will or estate. Some prefer the increased flexibility that a beneficiary designation provides by using:
IRAs and retirement plans
Life Insurance policies
Stocks or Appreciated Assets – When you donate securities to La Salle University, you receive the same income tax savings that you would if you wrote us a check, but with the added benefit of eliminating capital gains taxes on the transfer, which can be as high as high as 20 percent.
IRA Qualified Charitable Distributions – If you are 70 ½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit La Salle University and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up $100,000 per year from your IRA directly to a qualified organization such as La Salle without having to pay income taxes on the money and you can use the gift to satisfy all or part of your required minimum distribution for the year.
