PLANNED GIVING

Make a difference for Special Olympics athletes and yourself – Consider an Estate or Legacy Gift.

What are planned gifts? Planned gifts include gifts through your will, charitable gift annuities, life insurance, pooled income funds and charitable trusts. A thoughtfully planned estate gift can help us reach those who haven’t had the opportunity to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage and experience joy through the participation in our program.

Many of our supporters make charitable gifts by naming Special Olympics Oklahoma as a beneficiary in their wills.

You irrevocably transfer some assets to Special Olympics Oklahoma now, and in return, your survivor will receive income for life.

Some of our supporters no longer need their life insurance that was purchased years ago to provide for children or other family members and donate the policy to Special Olympics Oklahoma.

Individuals with very large estates can use a charitable lead trust to benefit Special Olympics Oklahoma and pass principal to family members with little or no tax penalty.

Your IRA assets will be transferred to a charitable remainder trust; the trust will provide life insurance for the beneficiary, and then an eventual gift to Special Olympics Oklahoma.

Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer. Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling stock. Planned or legacy giving is an increasingly popular way for individuals of all financial circumstances to make charitable gifts, enabling a donor to arrange charitable contributions in a way to maximize his or her personal objectives while minimizing after-tax cost.

  • Fulfill philanthropic goals
  • Reduce income tax through a deduction for the gift
  • Avoid capital gain tax on gifts of long-term appreciated property
  • Retain a stream of payments for life for the donor and other beneficiaries
  • Increase disposable income
  • Eliminate federal estate tax on property passing to charity upon donor’s death
  • Reduce cost and time in estate settlement.

A planned gift to Special Olympics Oklahoma helps ensure the future of the services for these special citizens of our state. To learn more about how you can help, please contact Derek Cain at 918-481-1234.

VEHICLE DONATION

Do you have an old vehicle that you would like to get rid of? Did you know that your old car could make a difference in someone’s life? Why not donate it to Special Olympics Oklahoma and claim it as a tax deduction. All you need is your vehicle, the keys, and a clear title of ownership and we will handle the rest. Call 1-877-999-8322 and indicate you want to donate your vehicle to Special Olympics Oklahoma. If the vehicle is non-drivable, they will make arrangements to have the vehicle towed. Your vehicle will then be sold at an auction to benefit Special Olympics Oklahoma. Contact Derek Cain at 918-481-1234 if you have any questions.
