RETIREMENT PLAN GIFTS

A gift of your unused retirement assets can benefit you and your family and support PBS12 far into the future.

benefits of donating retirement plan assets

Donating part or all of your unused retirement assets, such as your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift to PBS12.

You will be assured that every dollar will be used for a charitable purpose (like educational programming for kids) and shielded from income or estate taxes. You can then work with your advisors to identify other assets that are better suited to leave to your loved ones.

Take a look at why this may the optimal gift plan for you:

  • Continue to take regular lifetime withdrawals
  • Maintain flexibility to change beneficiaries if your family’s needs change during your lifetime
  • Your heirs avoid the potential double taxation on the assets left in your retirement account

how to make a gift of retirement assets

To leave your retirement assets to PBS12, simply contact your retirement plan or IRA administrator and complete a beneficiary designation form naming PBS12 as beneficiary, and the percentage you’d like us to receive (1%-100%). Then mail the form back to the plan administrator and keep a copy for your records.

Please notify PBS12 of your intentions. You can contact our Development Department online, or send a letter to PBS12, Attn: Shari Bernson, Director of Development, 2900 Welton Street, Suite 100, Denver CO 80205.
