More ways to give

Your gift: Easy, lasting, powerful

Clean water to drink and clean air to breathe; lakes and rivers that are safe for swimming and fishing; vibrant parks and wild forests that offer the opportunity to experience nature’s beauty and wonder; clean, renewable sources of energy that don’t pollute and never run out; and of course, a stable climate — all this and more should be the heritage we leave to future generations.

Yet the threats to our environment and our families’ health won’t go away anytime soon. With your help, neither will we.

Your gift to Environment New Hampshire, a project of Environment America, a 501(c)(4) organization, can have a lasting impact.

Giving through your will

We would consider it an honor to be remembered in your will.

Making a bequest to Environment New Hampshire is simple and satisfying. In most cases, the addition of a few sentences to your will can complete the gift.

Please consult with your attorney before making any changes to your will.

Keeping your will or living trust updated is essential to ensure that all of your wishes will be carried out. It’s easy to remember Environment New Hampshire in your will or living trust. Your advisor can include just a few sentences to arrange the gift.

Through a will or trust, you can give:

  • A specific dollar amount or asset, such as securities.
  • A percentage of your estate.
  • A gift from the balance of your estate after expenses have been paid and specific and general bequests have been honored.

Please consult with your attorney before making any changes to your will.

Retirement Accounts

An IRA or 401(k) can be an efficient way to save for retirement, but it is not always the best gift to leave to your heirs. These assets can be a way to include Environment New Hampshire in your estate plan.

More about giving through retirement accounts

Most retirement plans are tax-deferred, meaning that you do not pay income tax on the assets in a retirement plan until they are distributed to you.  Because retirement assets that are unused during your lifetime may be subject to both income and estate taxes, these may be among the costliest assets to distribute to loved ones through your estate.

A retirement account can be gifted to a nonprofit organization such as Environment New Hampshire if designated as a beneficiary. Unlike an individual beneficiary, a tax-exempt non-profit like Environment New Hampshire will not be subject to income tax on the value of the account.  Consequently, leaving retirement account funds to a nonprofit can maximize the final value of your gift.

Naming or changing your beneficiary is simple. After checking with your advisors, ask the administrator of your retirement plan for a beneficiary designation form, fill it out, and return it to the administrator.

Life Insurance

In some circumstances, you can name Environment New Hampshire as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy.

More about giving through life insurance

Sometimes circumstances change and life insurance is no longer a critical part of an estate plan. If you wish to redirect life insurance, it’s simple to do so. You can designate a nonprofit such as Environment New Hampshire as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy, which you will continue to own during your lifetime. After consulting with your advisors, ask your insurance agent how to make this simple change to your policy.
