Planned Giving

Welcome and thank you for your interest in leaving a legacy by contributing to the National Center for Homeopathy (NCH) through your Will, insurance or estate plan. 

A planned gift to NCH may be made in memory of a loved one, to honor someone special, or in appreciation of the important work NCH has done on behalf of the homeopathic community.  Planned gifts to NCH can be made through:

Bequests

A gift in your will is an effective way to make a meaningful contribution to NCH, while also providing estate tax savings for your heirs.  Gifts through wills, revocable living trusts, retirement and savings accounts, life insurance and similar plans are an important means of support and can be structured to benefit you, your family and NCH.  Whether the beneficiary of your will or living trust, you can give tangible property (stocks, real estate or bonds), a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate.

Sample Bequest Language:  "I, [name], of [city, state ZIP], give, devise and bequeath to NATIONAL CENTER FOR HOMEOPATHY in McLean, Virginia, [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose."

Retirement Assets

Name the National Center for Homeopathy as the first, second or last beneficiary or all or a part of your pension plan or Individual Retirement Account (IRA).

Life Insurance Policies

Make a gift of an existing fully paid policy; establish a new whole life policy and name the National Center for Homeopathy as owner and beneficiary; or add NCH as a joint or first, second or last beneficiary of your policy.

Gifts of Stocks, Bonds or Mutual Funds

Gifts of appreciated stock can provide substantial support to NCH and have a long-term impact.  You may benefit from a gift of appreciated assets by deducting the full fair market value of long-term appreciated assets and avoiding tax on the capital gain.

NCH does not provide legal or tax advice.  We strongly encourage you to consult with your attorney, financial and/or tax advisor to review and approve any updates to your will or estate plan.  We will gladly work with your independent advisors to assist in any way. NCH is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so your charitable contribution is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law.
