A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift to Lutheran Planned Giving of South Dakota.
If you are like most people, you probably will not use all of your retirement assets during your lifetime. Make a gift and help further the mission of your favorite ministry or charity.
Did you know that 60%-65% of your retirement assets may be taxed if you leave them to your heirs at your death? Another option is to leave your heirs assets that receive a step up in basis (such as real estate and stock) and give the retirement assets to Lutheran Planned Giving of South Dakota. As a charity, we are not taxed upon receiving an IRA or other retirement plan assets.
Your retirement assets may be transferred to Lutheran Planned Giving of South Dakota by completing a beneficiary designation form provided by your plan custodian. If you designate Lutheran Planned Giving of South Dakota as beneficiary, we will benefit from the full value of your gift because your IRA assets will not be taxed at your death. Your estate will benefit from an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift.
