Securing the future for the underserved
New York communities
Make a lasting gift to ensure that your passion and commitment to the New York Urban League continues for years to come.
Whether you would like your donation to make an impact today or go into effect after your lifetime, there is a charitable plan that lets you provide for your family and support the NYUL.
We would love to discuss how to best facilitate a stock transfer or how to designate the NYUL as one of your beneficiaries. No gift is ever too small and will ensure that the work of NYUL will go on into the future.
Should you have any questions please contact the Office of the President to meet about Planned Giving:
IRA Charitable Rollover
Not everyone wants to commit to making a gift in their wills or estates. Some prefer the increased flexibility that a beneficiary designation provides by using:
IRAs and retirement plans
Life insurance policies
Donor advised funds
It only takes three simple steps to make this type of gift using a beneficiary designation.
Here's how to name the New York Urban League as a beneficiary:
Contact the administrator of your retirement plan, insurance policy, bank account or donor advised fund for a change-of-beneficiary form or simply download a form from your provider's website.
Decide what percentage (1 to 100) you would like to contribute to the NYUL and name us, along with the percentage you chose, on the beneficiary form.
Return the completed form to your plan administrator, insurance company, bank or financial institution.
Make a difference today and save on taxes.
You can give any amount (up to a maximum of $100,000) per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as the New York Urban League without having to pay income taxes on the money. Gifts of any value $100,000 or less are eligible for this benefit and you can feel good knowing that you are making a difference at the New York Urban League. This popular gift option is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover, but you may also see it referred to as a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD for short.
Why Consider This Gift?
Your gift will be put to use today, allowing you to see the difference your donation is making.
Beginning in the year you turn 72, you can use your gift to satisfy all or part of your required minimum distribution (RMD).
You pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions.
Since the gift doesn’t count as income, it can reduce your annual income level. This may help lower your Medicare premiums and decrease the amount of Social Security that is subject to tax.
