QUALIFIED CHARITABLE DISTRIBUTION
If you are in your 70s, you may want to consider a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your IRA. This allows you to divert some of your federally taxable required distributions to a charity and thus reduce your federally taxable income. Please consult your own tax/financial advisor and consider making a QCD to Lifetime Learning Center.
ESTATE PLANNING: REMEMBERING LLC
Bequests through estate planning can bring long-term financial stability to nonprofit organizations. In 1998 LLC received its first bequest, from the family of a long-time student, which provided stability, flexibility, and confidence as LLC began to grow and thrive.
Making a bequest to LLC can be as simple as a statement in your will that you give a certain sum to LIfetime Learning Center, Inc., a tax exempt nonprofit organization (Tax ID No. 91-1151719). A bequest can allocate funds for general purposes or restrict how funds are used. Thank you for considering LLC in your estate plans!
