Your Legacy of Justice Can Change the World

One of the simplest ways to make a gift to International Justice Mission is to name us in your assets. You can specify the individuals and charities you want to support and you can also specify the percentage of the assets you want each beneficiary to receive. It's literally as easy as filling out a form.  

Beneficiary designations are available when giving the following assets: 

Retirement Assets

An alternative to a bequest gift is to designate International Justice Mission as the beneficiary of your retirement assets. This gift is simple because you can control the transfer of these assets at your death without changing your will or living trust. All you need to do is request (and complete) a new beneficiary designation form from your plan administrator. There is no need to modify your will or living trust.

A gift of retirement assets has the added advantage of being among the most tax-wise ways to make an estate gift. This is because your retirement assets, if left to individuals (other than a spouse), will be subject to income tax when they receive distributions and, in the case of a non-spouse, those distributions may be accelerated. With a gift to a non-profit such as IJM, 100 percent of the funds are available for its charitable purposes. If you want to remember us in your estate plan, it is often better to leave other types of assets – cash, securities, real estate – to your heirs and give the more heavily taxed retirement asset to International Justice Mission.

Life Insurance

Life Insurance policies can also be used to make a gift to IJM. Complete and return to the insurance company a form designating that International Justice Mission receives all or a portion of the death benefit associated with your life insurance policy. As an alternative to naming IJM as the beneficiary, you can transfer ownership of the policy. Transferring ownership results in an immediate income tax charitable deduction and potential income tax savings in the year of the gift.

Other Assets

Commercial Annuity Contracts - a commercial annuity will sometimes have a remaining value at the end of the annuitant’s lifetime. You can name IJM to receive all or part of this amount by designating it as a beneficiary (sole or partial) on the appropriate form from the insurance company.

Bank Accounts - you can instruct your bank to pay IJM all or a portion of what remains in a checking or savings account. Your bank can provide you with the appropriate beneficiary designation form.

Investment Accounts - you can instruct your investment company to transfer to IJM some or all investments held in the account at the time of your passing. Your broker or agent can let you know the process for doing this – it may be as simple as adding “T.O.D. to International Justice Mission” after your name on the account.

 

As you consult your attorney on the selection of appropriate wording to reflect your own goals and intentions regarding International Justice Mission, be sure our organization’s correct legal name appears in all final documents as:

“International Justice Mission, P.O. Box 58147, Washington D.C. 20037, a nonprofit organization incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Federal Tax Identification Number: 54-1722887.”
