Make a Bequest

Bequests allow you to defer your gift until after your life-time.  Remembering NCADP in your will or trust can be easily accomplished with the designation of a specific dollar amount or specific asset.  You may also designate NCADP to receive a specified percentage or the residuary of your estate assets.

The following is sample language that you may use to remember NCADP in your will or trust:

“I give and bequeath the sum of $______ (or specific asset or _____ percent or the residuary of my estate) to be used by the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty for its general charitable purposes.”

Contribute Your Retirement Plan Assets

Did you know that you can support the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty’s important work by naming NCADP as the partial or sole beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), 403(b) or other retirement plans? Since retirement plan assets may be subject to both income and estate taxes if left to heirs, estate planners often recommend that you designate all or a portion of the assets to a charitable organization like NCADP.  By leaving such assets to NCADP, you can pass assets to your heirs which may generate a lower tax burden for your estate.

It is easy to make this kind of gift. Simply request a “change of beneficiary” form from your retirement plan administrator.  On this form you can name NCADP as sole or partial beneficiary or as a contingent beneficiary in the event you are predeceased by your immediate beneficiary.

On the beneficiary form list us as:  

National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty
1620 L Street, NW, Suite 250
Washington, DC 20036
Tax ID # 23-229-0483

Make NCADP a Beneficiary of a Life Insurance Policy

Life insurance for a charitable organization lets you make a large gift at little cost. By leaving the proceeds of an insurance policy to the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, the proceeds of the insurance policy will not be subject to estate taxes upon your death.  If you transfer ownership of the policy to NCADP during your lifetime, you may qualify for an income tax charitable deduction and also deduct the cost of future premium payments.

Here’s how easy it is… If the insurance policy already exists, you should request a “change of beneficiary” form from the insurance company.  You can name the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty as sole or partial beneficiary or you can name us as a contingent beneficiary in case you are predeceased by your primary beneficiary.

On the form list us as:  

National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty
1620 L Street, NW, Suite 250
Washington, DC 20036
Tax ID # 23-229-0483
