Making a Bequest to S:US
Making a bequest can be as simple as inserting a paragraph into your will. We can help you workout the details.
Example Bequest Language: “I give, devise and bequeath to Services for the UnderServed, Inc. (S:US), Tax ID #91-1918247, 463 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10018, the sum of $__________ (or _______% of my residuary estate) to be used in support of its general charitable purposes.”
If you wish to designate your bequest for a specific program, please contact the resource development department at (917) 408-5375 or [email protected], so we can work with you to direct your gift. Even if you wish to remain anonymous, please inform us of your gift.
Gifts of Retirement Assets and Life Insurance
You can help transform lives, improve communities and break the cycle of poverty for future generations by making a tax-free gift from your IRA directly to S:US, which may qualify as your Required Minimum Distribution.
You can also provide support by naming S:US as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension, or other retirement plan. Depending on the gift, there may be immediate tax benefits, or savings to your estate.
