Popular ways to make a planned gift

There are several ways to make a planned gift to Moffitt. For instance, you may want to talk with your attorney or tax advisor about:

  • Including a gift to Moffitt in your will or trust, which will allow you to provide future support to Moffitt with no cost to you during your lifetime. Creating a life-income gift, such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust, which can provide you with a guaranteed income stream, significant tax savings, and the satisfaction of providing Moffitt with essential long-term resources
  • Naming Moffitt as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or other transfer on death accounts, such as an individual retirement account (IRA), 401(k) plan, profit-sharing plan, Keogh plan or 403(b) plan, which will allow you to support Moffitt while taking advantage of special tax considerations
  • Making a current gift to Moffitt using assets in your traditional individual retirement account (IRA) through a "Charitable IRA Rollover," which allows individuals over the age of 70½ to make a direct, tax-free transfer to Moffitt for cancer research and patient care

Through the generous support of people like you, Moffitt has become one of the most widely respected cancer research and treatment centers in the nation. Whether you choose to make a planned gift or cash donation, participate in a fundraising event or join a giving society, you can make a significant impact on the lives of many people – possibly more than you ever thought possible.
