There are several simple and savvy ways that you can support FCNL and the FCNL Education Fund without reducing your income or diminishing your savings.
Think about using assets that can be transferred to FCNL without legal expense. You may have bank investments, retirement, insurance, stock, or mutual-fund accounts that you can use to accomplish your charitable goals. All of these assets can be transferred by completing a POD (Pay on Death) or TOD (Transfer on Death) form. Some companies also call these beneficiary designation forms. This completed form tells the account custodian what to do with the account after your passing.
This is “Designate and Donate” gift planning. You can designate and donate today without a negative impact on cash flow or lifestyle.
Keep it simple and savvy. Ask your bank for a POD form. Ask your retirement plan, investment account or insurance company for a TOD form. Designate and donate with any of these assets. It takes less than five minutes of your time.
