Planned Giving

There are several ways to support the Northwest Indian College Foundation. Planned giving is an option that gives donors flexibility and unique options such as gifts of real estate, assets and/or retirement assets, stocks and bonds, life insurance, charitable trusts, and bequests. With careful planning, consultation with your agents and/or attorney and our qualified staff, please consider one of these generous options to show your support.

Gifts of Real Estate

Donating appreciated real estate, such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland, timberland, ranch or commercial property can make a great gift to the Northwest Indian College Foundation while providing the donor with a tax deduction and possibly estate tax savings.

Gifts of Assets

Gifts of assets have two general categories, 1) In-kind gifts if you have a valuable item you are willing to part with or 2) retirement assets if you have unused retirement assets.

In-kind gifts could be a painting, antique, vintage automobile, equipment or other valuable items.

Retirement Assets could include part or all of your unused retirement assets, such as your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan.

Gifts of Stocks and Bonds

Gifts of stocks, bonds or mutual fund can be made outright or as part of a pledge to Northwest Indian College while providing the donor with a capital gains tax savings.

Gifts of Life Insurance

Gifts of life insurance can be a unique gift for an unused insurance policy that may have outlived its original purpose and provide donors with a tax deduction.
