What kind of legacy do you want to leave in our world?

Consider leaving a legacy of health and hope by making a special gift now or by including AMOS in your will or estate plans.

Your legacy gift will give AMOS the confidence and means to innovate and plan for the future, and help further essential health care work for vulnerable people in our world.

We recommend you consult with your lawyer, tax advisor, or financial advisor to help you decide what type of gift might be best for you and your loved ones.

Give Stock

When you donate long-term appreciated stock to a qualified charitable organization like AMOS, you can bypass capital gains tax, and claim a charitable deduction for the fair market value of the gift on the date of your donation. Or, consider taking advantage of the 100% AGI limitation for gifts of cash in 2021 by selling depreciated stock. You can claim the capital loss on your taxes, donate the cash from the sale to a qualified charity, and then take a charitable deduction for the amount of the cash donation. 

Give by Bequest

Leave a gift to AMOS in your will or trust by specifying a percentage, fixed dollar amount, or a residual amount of what may be left over after all other distributions are made according to your wishes. Generally, all it takes is one sentence, and there is no cost to you now! Please contact us to receive sample language to include in your will or trust. 

Give Using Your IRA

If you are 70.5 years or older, you can take advantage of the IRA Charitable Rollover (which also counts towards your minimum required distribution) and transfer funds tax-free directly from your IRA to a charitable organization like AMOS. You can also name AMOS as the beneficiary (or secondary beneficiary, after your spouse) of all or a percentage of the remainder of your IRA, and it will be transferred tax-free upon your passing. Retirement plans are often subject both to deferred income tax and estate tax, making this an ideal asset to leave to charity rather than your heirs. And, it’s easy to set up! Contact your IRA account manager to obtain a change-of-beneficiary form.

Give a Life Insurance Policy

If you own a life insurance policy you no longer need, consider naming an organization like AMOS as beneficiary, and the death benefit of the policy will go to AMOS. If you name AMOS as both beneficiary and owner, you’ll receive a charitable tax deduction for approximately the current cash value of the policy, as well as for any additional gifts you make to AMOS used to pay additional premiums. To put this in motion, contact your insurance company to obtain a change-of-owner/beneficiary form.
