Planned Giving

Planned gifts are used to ensure the present and future vital work of the Texas Freedom Network and the Texas Freedom Network Education Fund. You can include TFN as a beneficiary in your will, set up a charitable gift annuity, name TFN as a beneficiary in a living trust, or make a gift of stock.

For more information on how you can become a Legacy Society supporter and include Texas Freedom Network in your estate plans, please make your selection below.

 

Bequests to the Texas Freedom Network

The most common planned gift is a bequest through your will or living trust. You can arrange a gift of a specific amount, a percentage, or even all or part of the residuum of your estate. If you would like to make such a gift to Texas Freedom Network or the TFN Education Fund, your attorney may wish to include language similar to the following:

“I hereby direct $___________ (or ____ percent of my residual estate) in cash, securities, or other property to the Texas Freedom Network to be used for its general purposes.”

 

Donate Stocks or Securities

The gift of an appreciated asset is a powerful way to support Texas Freedom Network or the TFN Education Fund’s critical work.

By transferring stock or mutual funds to the Texas Freedom Network, a 501(c)(4) organization, you do not have to pay capital gains taxes on the stock, but you are not eligible for a charitable deduction for the value of the stock itself.

By making a gift of appreciated securities to the TFN Education Fund, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, you will avoid paying capital gains tax on all stock that you choose to donate and you are eligible for a charitable deduction on the full fair market value of your gift.

Please contact our Development Department with any questions about giving stocks or securities.

Please notify our Development Department of all stock gifts. This will help us shepherd your gift securely through the transfer process.

 

Retirement Plans

Name Texas Freedom Network or the TFN Education Fund as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or other qualified plan. You may designate the organization to receive all or a portion of the balance of your plan through your plan administrator.

Use your Traditional IRA to make your charitable gifts to the TFN Education Fund in 2016.
