Ways To Give

  • Wills and Bequests

One of the easiest ways to make a future contribution to VOSD is through your will or trust. By naming Voice of San Diego in your will or trust, you can leave a legacy for the future of San Diego.

  • Gift of Retirement Benefits

You can name Voice of San Diego as a beneficiary of a company pension or profit sharing plan, or of a private fund such as a 401(k) or an IRA. Donating assets from one of these plans may reduce your tax liability.

If you are 70½ years old or older, you can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as ours without having to pay income taxes on the money.

  • Income Plans

Through the use of a charitable remainder trust, charitable gift annuity or pooled income fund, you may make a gift and receive life income for you and your spouse or other beneficiary.

  • Gift of Life Insurance

When you irrevocably assign a life insurance policy to Voice of San Diego (as sole beneficiary and owner of the policy), you will receive an income tax deduction in an amount roughly equal to the cash value at the time of the gift.
