 How You Can Give


  •  Bequest - Designate McCormick as the beneficiary of your asset by will, trust, or Beneficiary designation form.
  • Life Estate Reserved - Give your property to McCormick, but retain the right to use the property during your life.
  • Charitable Lead Trust - A trust that makes gifts to McCormick for a number of years. Your family receives the trust remainder at substantial tax savings.
  • Give It Twice Trust - Provide your children with a stream of income while making a gift to charity.
  • Charitable Gift Annuity - Transfer cash or appreciated property to McCormick in exchange for our promise to pay you fixed payments for the rest of your life. You may be tired of living at the mercy of the fluctuating stock and real estate markets. A charitable gift annuity can provide you with a secure source of fixed payments for life.
  • Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust or Unitrust - Transfer cash or appreciated property to fund a charitable remainder annuity trust or unitrust. The trust sells your property tax free and provides you with income for life or a term of years. You may be looking for a way to receive fixed income for life or a number of years. You may be concerned about the high cost of capital gains tax with the sale of an appreciated asset. Perhaps you recently sold property and are looking for a way to save on taxes and plan for retirement.
  • Sale and Unitrust - If you sell your appreciated assets, you will pay a large capital gains tax. A sale and charitable remainder unitrust may be the solution to avoid capital gains tax. Give a portion of your property to McCormick to fund a charitable remainder trust, when the property sells you receive cash and income for life.
