Our mission remains to influence the lives of our neighbors who are most in need. And we continue to depend on the generosity of supporters who share their financial resources with us-and become stewards of a mission more than a century old.
Volunteers of America's history is woven from many individual stories-personal tales told through the experiences of the millions of lives we’ve touched as well as those who have helped us serve them. As we move onward, we invite you to become a very special part of that history, leaving a legacy through your personal financial commitment to Volunteers of America.
There are a number of ways that you can be involved in helping to advance our mission:
• ESTATES AND BEQUESTS
• SECURITIES AND STOCKS
• CHARITABLE GIFT ANNUITIES
• OUTRIGHT GIFTS
• IN-KIND GOODS AND SERVICES
• MATCHING GIFTS
• REAL ESTATE
• MEMORIALS AND TRIBUTES
• NAMED ENDOWMENT FUNDS
For more information on how you can be involved or become a member of the Ballington and Maud Booth Legacy Society, please contact Michael James, Director of Development 720-264-3322 or firstname.lastname@example.org
IRA Rollover Provision Reinstated
The provision exempts from taxable income any funds transferred (“rolled over”) from a Traditional or Roth Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to a charitable organization through 2009. Donors who are 70 ½ and better may have assets (up to $100,000) transferred directly to Volunteers of America by the IRA custodian. By going directly to the charity, the money is not included in the IRA owner’s income and is not taxed, preserving the full amount for charitable purposes. Transfers to Volunteers of America count towards the IRA owners required annual distribution and thereby can reduce income taxes. (Talk to your financial advisor about your situation).
To make an IRA gift simply contact the custodian or trustee of your account. Be sure to notify Volunteers of America so we may ensure proper transfer and receipting for your thoughtful contribution.
