Bequests

By including United Neighborhood Houses in your will, you will help create opportunities for individuals and families in need. Through your will, you can specify that some or all of your assets go to UNH. By doing so, you also become eligible to join The Founders Society. 

Here is the suggested legal language for including UNH in your will or estate plan: "I give to United Neighborhood Houses, a New York based non-profit with its principal offices at 70 West 36th Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY the sum of $_ or _% of my residual estate to be used for its general purposes."

Beneficiary Designations

By naming UNH as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, insurance policy, or financial account the asset will transfer to UNH at the end of your lifetime and your estate will be entitled to a charitable deduction for the amount of the gift. By doing so, you also become eligible to join The Founders Society. 

When designating UNH as a beneficiary of a plan, simply provide our legal name, address and taxpayer identification number on the plan's beneficiary designation. Although beneficiary designation forms may differ, the following information may be used.

Gifts of Stock

Gifts of securities such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds are especially advantageous if you hold a security such as stock that has increased in value since it was acquired. By making a gift of stock held longer than one year, you avoid paying capital gains tax and receive an income tax deduction for the current market value of the gift. You may deduct gifts totaling up to 30% of your adjusted gross income in any year, with a five-year carry-over for any excess.

If you hold stocks or bonds in street name with a broker, you may transfer the securities electronically by instructing your broker to send the securities to the UNH account at Merrill Lynch.

You will need to send a letter to your broker with written instructions.

In order to facilitate the transfer and acknowledgment of your stock gift, please notify us of your name, the name of the stock and the number of shares being donated before you transfer the stocks. We will respect the wishes of donors who prefer not to have their name publicly disclosed. You may notify us by email: Jessica Ziegler.

Charitable Remainder Trust

A Charitable Remainder Trust will allow you to receive income or to provide income for another person or persons, such as children or grandchildren, for a specified period of time (i.e., 20 years). When the trust finishes making those monthly or annual payouts to your loved ones, the remaining assets must be directed to support a charity such as UNH. Making UNH the beneficiary in this case also makes you eligible to join The Founders Society.

Typically, Charitable Remainder Trusts offer three important tax benefits: (1) a current income tax deduction for the present value of the remainder committed to charity; (2) the avoidance of capital gains tax when the appreciated assets are sold; (3) exemption from tax of earnings of the trust until they are distributed to the income beneficiary. Learn more about this option from one of our donors.
