Include CAREERS in your will.
You’ve taken care of your retirement and your children… what about individuals with disabilities in Westchester and Putnam Counties? Your legacy can make a huge difference to people in need by improving the quality of their lives.
Designate one of the following to CAREERS in your will:
- a specific dollar amount
- a percentage of your estate
- the residual amount of your estate after other beneficiaries receive specified amounts,
- a specific asset such as real estate or stocks.
- name CAREERS Support Solutions, Inc. as beneficiary of a life insurance policy, an IRA, a 40lK, Keogh or other pension plan.
Keep in mind that your will can be amended at any time.
One of the best ways to help CAREERS continue its mission of helping people with disabilities is by making a bequest in your will. There are three different kinds of bequests and the entire value of any of these types of bequests is eligible for both a federal and New York state estate tax charitable deduction.
Specific Bequest. You designate a particular property (such as shares of stock), dollar amount, or percentage of your estate to be transferred to CAREERS.
Contingent Bequest. You designate all or a portion of your estate to be transferred to CAREERS only if a named beneficiary predeceases you.
Residual Bequest. You designate all or a portion of your remaining (residuary) estate to be transferred to CAREERS Support Solutions, Inc. only after all other beneficiaries (including debts, taxes, and other expenses) have been paid.
Even a small percentage of your estate can make a difference to individuals with disabilities. If you decide to make a bequest, share your plan with your attorney and financial advisors, who will draft appropriate language for your will and help structure the gift effectively. If you have any questions, please call CAREERS Executive Director Tina Cornish-Lauria at (914) 741-8500 x111.
Your legacy will make a difference to individuals with disabilities throughout Westchester and Putnam Counties, and ultimately to our entire community.
