A gift of your retirement assets (IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plans) is an excellent way to make a gift. Here are a few ways you can give retirement assets:

Give your retirement assets in your will: Did you know that 50%-60% of your retirement assets may be taxed if you leave them to your heirs at your death? Another option is to leave your heirs assets that receive a step-up in basis (such as real estate and stock) and give the retirement assets to our organization. As a charity, we are not taxed upon receiving an IRA or other retirement assets.

Transfer your retirement assets: Your retirement assets may be transferred to us by completing a beneficiary designation form provided by your plan custodian. If you designate our organization as a beneficiary, we will benefit from the full value of your gift because your IRA assets will not be taxed at your death. Your estate will benefit from an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift.

A gift of real property (such as a home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland, ranch, or commercial property) can make a wonderful, lasting gift to Randolph-Macon Academy, and may provide tax advantages to donors.

Make a gift of real property: Your real property may be gifted to Randolph-Macon Academy by executing or signing a deed transferring ownership. You may deed part or all of your real property to the Academy. Your gift will generally be based on the property’s fair market value, which must be established by an independent appraisal.

Make a gift of mortgaged property: Please contact the Advancement Team at 540-636-5485 or at advancement@rma.edu for more information.

If your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors, consider furthering the Academy’s mission with a gift!

Make a gift of life insurance todayDid you know that you can give your life insurance policy to us today and receive a charitable income tax deduction? You can then make deductible contributions to us each year,  which we may use to pay the premiums. Randolph-Macon will then benefit from the proceeds of your policy.

Designate R-MA as beneficiary of your policyYou can also designate Randolph-Macon Academy as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy. You will continue to own and can make use of the policy during your lifetime. The policy will be included in your taxable estate when you pass away, but your estate will benefit from an estate tax charitable deduction for the value of the gift to R-MA.

If you have any questions about your gift of life insurance, please contact us at 540-636-5485 or at advancement@rma.edu.
