Ways to Become a Stewards for the Future Member
Bequest by Will or Revocable Trust
You may identify USA Boccia as the beneficiary of a certain amount, specific asset, or percentage of your estate under your Will or Revocable Trust. Although you will not receive any tax benefits during your lifetime, following your passing, your estate may be eligible to take income and estate tax charitable deductions for the testamentary bequest to USA Boccia.

Have you already made a gift to USA Boccia in your will or trust? All you have to do now is fill out this form to let us know. We would love to say thank you for prioritizing USA Boccia in your lasting legacy.
Did you know that there are assets that may not be included in your will or trust? These are called non-probate assets and you may need to plan for them separately. You can designate USA Boccia as a beneficiary of these types of assets which include but are not limited to an IRA and a 401(k). Learn more.
IRA Assets or Other Qualified Retirement Benefits
You can designate USA Boccia as a partial, contingent or sole beneficiary of your IRA or other qualified retirement plans, such as your 401(k), 403(b), Keogh plan or profit-sharing pension. Designating USA Boccia as a beneficiary of your retirement account(s) is a tax-efficient way to maximize support for USA Boccia, as the amount distributed to NRPA will not be subject to income tax and will qualify for the estate tax charitable deduction. Be sure to review your plan documents and obtain any necessary approvals.
In addition, if you are over 70½ years old, you may make a qualified charitable distribution of up to $100,000 per year from your IRA directly to NRPA without having to include the amount distributed as income for federal income tax purposes. No charitable deduction may be taken, but such distributions will qualify for all or part of the IRA’s required minimum distributions. Be sure to share this gift plan with your financial or tax advisor.
You can designate USA Boccia as the beneficiary of all or a percentage of your life insurance policy proceeds, which will be deductible for estate tax purposes following your passing. You may also irrevocably transfer ownership of a paid-up life insurance policy to USA Boccia during your lifetime and may take an income tax charitable deduction for the current value of the policy.
Certificates of Deposit, Savings or Brokerage Accounts
A simple way to provide for the future of our parks and recreation is by making USA Boccia the “pay on death” beneficiary of the account. Charitable contributions made in this manner are treated the same as testamentary bequests for tax purposes.
Final distribution of contributions remaining in a donor-advised fund is usually governed by the terms of the agreement at the time the fund was created. You can name USA Boccia as a successor beneficiary or designate USA Boccia to receive a portion of the remaining account value, leaving the balance for your family or friends to continue your legacy of philanthropy.
Split-Interest Charitable Trusts
If you would like to benefit USA Boccia while obtaining an upfront income tax charitable deduction, and also potentially benefitting family members, you may consider a lifetime gift to an irrevocable charitable lead or charitable remainder trust. These trusts are structured to make distributions to charity either during or at the end of the trust term, and they may support individual beneficiaries at certain times. You should discuss these and other more advanced planned giving opportunities with your tax advisors.
