Estates and Planned Giving

There are a number of easy giving options from which you can choose to help secure the protection of the A.T. – from naming the Appalachian Trail Conservancy as a beneficiary in your will; to a more complex trust arrangement. See your options below.

bequest

You can provide for the future of the Trail by naming the Appalachian Trail Conservancy as a beneficiary of your will or trust.  By doing so your estate may save taxes. Rather than leaving a sum certain, you can include language that refers to a percentage of your estate or a description of the property you wish to give.

life insurance or retirement plan beneficiary designation

You can name the ATC as a beneficiary of all or part of your IRA, 401(k), 403(b) or other retirement plan.  You may also include the ATC as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy. For more information email us, or call us at 304.535.2200 x122 so that we can assist you through every step of the process.

On December 16, the Senate passed HR 5771 which included a one year extension of expired tax provisions retroactive to January 1, 2014. This reauthorizes the IRA charitable rollover through December 31, 2014. Donors age 70 1/2 and older may transfer up to $100,000 from their IRA to a qualified public charity. The transfer will be made free of federal income tax and the gift qualifies for the donor's 2014 required minimum distribution (RMD).
