The BBC has called Lancaster “America’s Refugee Capital.” If we can resettle 20x more refugees than any other place in the country, we believe that we can build an economy with the highest rates of women- and people-of-color-owned businesses and the most B Corps per capita. Will you help us work toward this vision?
Your donation – of any amount – will help ASSETS build an economy that works.
Planned & Legacy Giving
At ASSETS, your support is vital to the success of our mission. In addition to direct giving, you can support us through planned giving. ASSETS has partnered with Everence* to provide charitable services to help you explore a variety of planned giving options. Through gift planning, you can provide future support for ASSETS while also giving you and your loved ones financial flexibility, potential tax benefits and even income for life. For more information, contact Tina Campbell, Director of Development at email@example.com or 717-393-6089, ext 223. You also may contact Nikki Shingle at Nikki.firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-653-6662.
Through a bequest plan, you can designate ASSETS as the beneficiary of assets by will, trust or other instrument.
Charitable gift annuities:
A gift annuity is a great way to help ASSETS while also securing your future, with guaranteed payments for life.
Charitable remainder trusts:
A charitable remainder trust is an ideal way of turn your assets (like real estate and securities) into a charitable gift without losing much of your capital gains to taxes - and support ASSETS at the same time.
IRAs and tax-deferred accounts:
If you have a tax-deferred account, such as a traditional IRA (individual retirement account), you can donate it to charity upon your death and help your estate avoid paying substantial taxes that may be due.
Farmers can donate commodities like grain or livestock instead of cash to ASSETS, while also reducing taxes.
Gifts of stock:
You can turn your investments into cash without losing a large portion of your capital gains to taxes by donating all or a portion of your stock to ASSETS.
Gifts of real estate:
Giving a charitable gift of real estate is an option for owners of farmland, commercial or residential rental property, or vacant investment land.
Life insurance is a practical and affordable way to donate more than you may have though possible.
