Many Ways to Donate
It’s the simplest way to support NEF. You can make a gift to support our mission, meaning we will use it where it is most needed, or designate its use towards a program or event of your choice.
Memorial and Honorary Gifts
Was a friend or loved one touched by NEF in some way? Making a tax-deductible memorial/honorary gift is a wonderful way to celebrate the accomplishments and life of a loved one while supporting our mission.
Naming NEF as the recipient of your assets, IRAs and retirement plans, or life insurance or insurance annuities allows you to support NEF and often leave your heirs with many tax advantages. For instance, most retirement plans aren’t subject to income tax during your lifetime, but can be taxed as high as nearly 40% upon your death. Life insurance policies are a low-cost way to leave a large gift by naming NEF as the beneficiary. Unlike life insurance, insurance annuities leave your beneficiary with a tax burden upon your death, unless donated to a charitable organization like NEF.
For many of our supporters, few things are as satisfying as knowing the place they’ve called home will become a sizeable gift to NEF upon their passing. Real estate gifts are good ways to enjoy your home today, and pass on its value so NEF can sustain its ever-expanding support students in our public schools. Also called a retained life estate, you have the right to retain ownership of the property throughout your lifetime.
