Make your core values known by joining the and making a planned gift to the House Institute Foundation Legacy Society. Members of our legacy society are generous and forward thinking donors who will support our long-term success and be long remembered.
In addition to supporting our work through your generous cash donations, here are other ways you can contribute to the sustainability of innovative ear and hearing research, educating the public, and global hearing health in the long term. Many of these options are a win-win for the donor and the organization. We encourage you to consult with your financial advisor to discuss the tax implications of these options.
One of the easiest ways to help involves simply naming the House Institute Foundation as a beneficiary in your will and living trust. A bequest may be for a particular dollar amount or percentage of your estate. Estate tax savings may be significant.
Life Insurance Policy and Retirement Assets
Often overlooked by donors, naming the House Institute Foundation as a partial beneficiary of these assets can provide support for the organization.
Life Income Gifts
Life income gifts allow you to leave a gift in the care of the House Institute Foundation, while earning income for yourself during your lifetime. The two most popular life income gifts are charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities.
If you are a business owner, own real property or have any other type of complex asset, giving options exist that can both help the House Institute Foundation and benefit your family financially.
