The way to include Days for Girls in your estate planning is through bequests. No matter your income, a will more easily directs the dispersal of your estate as you wish.
If you decide to support DfG through your will, you can:
If you have a life insurance policy that is no longer needed to provide dependents, consider naming DfG as the beneficiary.
Some assets, such as IRAs and other qualified retirement plans, do not pass directly through your will and require you to name a beneficiary. You can also name Days for Girls as a beneficiary of a Certificate of Deposit (CD). These plans can be good choices for charitable giving because they tend to be taxed more heavily than other assets, sometimes greater than 50 percent. However, by making DfG the beneficiary, the full value of the account will pass to Days for Girls.
