Leave a Legacy
for Appalachian Women
NOSW and the women we serve are already benefiting from the planned gifts of committed supporters.
Marge Keller’s Legacy
In mid-April of 2020, NOSW received a large gift from the estate of Marjorie (Marge) Keller, a long-time donor to the New Opportunity School for Women. This type of unexpected gift is always a blessing to a small non-profit like NOSW, says Executive Director Robbie Pentecost.
Making a Planned Gift Is Easy!
If you wish you could do more for NOSW than your annual donation, you can! There are several ways to support our women into the future by planning ahead. Consult with an attorney who specializes in planned giving.
Make a Charitable Bequest/Name NOSW in Your Will
All it takes are a few sentences to mention the New Opportunity School for Women in your will or trust. You can designate a specific amount of money or a percentage of your estate. You will also need to include our address and Tax ID number. Contact Robbie Pentecost for our Tax ID number: 859-985-7200 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Name NOSW as a Beneficiary
Naming the New Opportunity School for Women as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, a retirement plan or IRA is an easy way to make a future gift without having to change an already existing will or estate plan. This results in significant tax benefits for your heirs.
Make an IRA Charitable Distribution
For anyone over 72, this is a great way to help NOSW—and yourself! When you have money rolled over directly from your IRA to NOSW, you do not pay taxes on that amount. Talk to the institution that holds your IRA to make this happen.
