Ways to Make an Estate Gift to NMFA

Planned gifts to NMFA offer creative and flexible strategies that enable you to support the military families that are so important to us all. At the same time, you will also be pursuing your own charitable and financial goals. The decisions that remain yours are: What type of asset will you give? What is the way you wish to make your gift?

Here are some types of assets you can use to include NMFA in your estate plans. If you have questions after reviewing the following list, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Retirement Assets

In the event you don’t use all of your retirement assets during your lifetime, you can donate part or all of your unused retirement assets, such as your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension, or another tax-deferred plan. This is an excellent way to show your pride in our military and acknowledge the sacrifices their loved ones make for our freedom.

How it Works

  • Contact the plan administrator of your retirement plan.
  • Inform administrator that you wish to designate NMFA as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or other qualified retirement plan.
  • Your heirs will avoid income tax on any retirement assets funded on a pre-tax basis.
  • Important! Your plan administrator is not obligated to notify us, so if you don’t tell us, we may not know. Please let us know about your gift.

Life Insurance Assets

Many of our supporters find that by designating NMFA as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, they can make a much larger gift than possible with a cash donation. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, such as a policy purchased to provide for minor children who are now financially independent adults, consider making a gift of your insurance policy to NMFA.

How it Works

  • Contact your insurance company to update your beneficiary designations to include NMFA.
  • Designate NMFA (EIN 52-0899384) to receive all or a percentage of your life insurance policy proceeds.
  • You may also transfer ownership of a paid-up life insurance policy to NMFA. We may elect to cash in the policy now or hold it.

Donor Advised Funds

Similar to the process of naming NMFA as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, you can also list NMFA to receive all or part of your donor-advised fund (DAF).

How it Works

  • Contact your fund administrator to list NMFA as a beneficiary of your DAF.
  • Designate NMFA to receive all or a portion of the balance of your fund on your passing.
  • The balance in your fund passes to NMFA when the fund terminates.
  • During your lifetime, you can also make grants to us from your DAF.
