A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to support the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of your insurance policy. For example, you may have purchased a policy to provide for minor children who are now financially independent adults.
Donating appreciated real estate, such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland, ranch or commercial property can also make a great gift to FARF.
Donating part or all of your retirement assets such as a gift from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan is an excellent way to make a gift to further our mission.
IRA means SAVE: Give your IRA Required Minimum Distribution
By instructing your IRA administrator to send your IRA directly to FARF, you will avoid paying any taxes on your RMD.
Why this family gives retirement assets
“When our grandson Jack, 19, had his initial diagnosis, FARF provided information and encouragement to Jack’s immediate family and to us as grandparents. As grandparents, we felt compelled to donate some of our retirement resources with matching funds from ExxonMobil. FARF also helped Jack and his mom, Jenny, participate in Camp Sunshine, where interaction with other FA children and family members offered caring advice and emotional support. We believe our funds help with research seeking a cure, defining the best treatment protocol, and improving transplants. In 2019 Jack survived failure of the initial transplant and immediately received a second that has been successful. On July 10, 2020 Jack participated in his big sister’s wedding and will soon be returning to Minnesota for his one-year post transplant checkup. We are confident our funds have been and will continue to be well invested to seek a cure and sustain FA families with hope and determination.”
