Planned Giving

Making a gift to Town Hall beyond your own lifetime can leave a lasting impact. When you make a legacy gift, you can designate all or a portion or your personal estate or specific property through a bequest in your will or living trust, or as a named beneficiary of your retirement or life insurance plans.

Bequest

One of the simplest ways to support Town Hall is through your will or living trust. A bequest can provide critical funding for the future of this community cultural center in service to the community.

You can name Town Hall as the direct beneficiary of a stated amount of money or a stated percentage of your estate. You can also designate Town Hall to receive all or a portion of the remainder of your estate once all specific bequest have been satisfied. You may even designate Town Hall as a contingent beneficiary in the event that family members or other beneficiaries do not survive you.

Key contact information you may need in order to include Town Hall as a beneficiary:

  • Legal name: Town Hall Association
  • Address: 1119 8th Avenue Seattle WA 98101
  • Tax ID#: 91-1910904
  • Relationship: Nonprofit organizations with 501(c)(3) status

Below is sample bequest language you may use:

Specific Bequest
“I, [NAME] give, devise and bequest to Town Hall Association, 1119 8th Avenue, Seattle WA 98101 or its successor organizations, [DOLLAR AMOUNT] (the sum of $[XXXX.XX]); ([NUMBER] percentage of my estate); (the following property: [LIST PROPERTY]); or (the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate) for its unrestricted use and purpose.

Contingent Bequest

“If [NAME] (primary beneficiary) does not survive me, then I give Town Hall Association, 1119 8th Avenue, Seattle WA 98101 or its successor organizations, [DOLLAR AMOUNT] (the sum of $[XXXX.XX]); ([NUMBER] percentage of my estate); (the following property: [LIST PROPERTY]); or (the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate) for its unrestricted use and purpose

Retirement Plans

You can also name Town Hall as a beneficiary of an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), 401(k) Plan, 403(b) Plan, or other qualified retirement plan. This type of gift can help reduce the taxes you pay on retirement savings. Simply contact your plan administrator and request a beneficiary form.

Life Insurance

A life insurance policy may include Town Hall as a beneficiary, whereby proceeds from the policy will be paid to Town Hall upon the death of the insured. Or, you can name Town Hall as both owner and beneficiary of the insurance policy. This type of irrevocable gift would entitle you to a tax deduction in the year you make your gift. If your policy is not fully funded, you may make tax deductible contributions to Town Hall to cover the future premium payments. for more information about this type of legacy gift, please consult your tax adviser.

Additional Information

We encourage you to speak with your legal and tax advisers about the type of bequest that might work best for you. If you have made a provision for Town Hall in your estate plans, please let us know so that we may recognize your generosity. If is also useful for Town Hall to keep a copy of the pages of your will that outlines this bequest, if you are comfortable with providing this information for our files.

For more information about planned giving and how you can make a lasting impact on Town Hall, please contact the Development Department at (206) 538-4231 or email errin@townhallseattle.org.

Appreciated Stock Gifts

Donors are discovering the ease and added benefits of giving gifts of appreciated securities. Often giving a gift of stock to Town Hall will create tax savings for the donor. Because of capital gains considerations, it is often more beneficial to contribute appreciated securities directly to Town Hall rather than to sell them and donate the proceeds of the sale.
