Leave a Legacy

  • Bequests: Make a gift to support future work in your will or living trust which offers an estate tax charitable deduction.

  • Retirement Plan Assets: Use your tax deferred retirement plan to continue caring for our diverse communities.

  • Stock Gifts: There are many advantages to stock and securities gifts including avoiding capital gains tax when you give long-term appreciated securities to Roots, receiving a charitable income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock if it has been held for more than a year, and allowing Roots to receive the full fair market value of the donated securities.

  • Charitable Trusts: Explore ways a life income gift can pay income to you or your chosen beneficiary for a term of years or for life and also provide future support for our programs.

  • Life Insurance: Naming Roots in a life insurance policy that is no longer needed for family support or liquidity may be an excellent vehicle for a gift.
