PLANNED GIVING

Plan to Make a Lasting Difference

If you would like to extend your support of our children and programs to make a lasting difference, there are several gift arrangements to choose from. Whether you would like to put your gift to work today or benefit our children and programs after your lifetime, you can find a charitable plan that best fits your needs.

Consider Making a Charitable Bequest

A charitable gift from your estate, stocks or retirement plan can help insure that Mitrata Nepal Foundation can continue to support education, healthcare and housing for underprivileged children in Nepal for the future. Such donations can also provide tax benefits for you and your family.

Stock 

If you have held an appreciated stock or mutual fund for more than one year, you can donate those securities and receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the shares transferred.  Doing this eliminates any capital gains assessments on the future sale of the securities.  In some cases that could be as much as 23.8% in addition to a savings on state income tax.  

Bequests From Wills/Revocable Living Trusts 

Name Mitrata as beneficiary with a specific dollar amount or asset, or a percentage of your residual estate after you have provided for your loved ones.
