PLANNED GIVING


Provide for the long-term support of The Is-Able Center through a Will bequest, trust, charitable gift annuity, life insurance policy or retirement account.
 
A charitable bequest is a sum of money or specific item of property (such as real estate, an automobile, stocks, bonds or other physical assets) that you can give to a charity. A contingent charitable bequest can be made if an alternate beneficiary named in your trust or will were to be deceased.


You don’t need a will to make a charitable beneficiary designation and you don’t need to change an existing will. You can simply name The Is-Able Center as a beneficiary of your private and/or employer sponsored life insurance policy or policies. You may also name The Is-Able Center as a beneficiary of any retirement accounts or other savings, brokerage, annuity or retirement accounts.


You can make provisions in your will if you like or you can arrange for The Is-Able Center to become a beneficiary of your estate at any time. This is very useful if you wish to include us in a retirement plan or life insurance policy. Making a contribution through your estate assets enables you to make a contribution larger than you may be able to make from your income and it may also be eligible for tax benefits.

To designate The Is-Able Center as a beneficiary: simply request the appropriate beneficiary designation form from your employer, insurance company, bank or broker and provide them with the following information:

Beneficiary Name: Is-Able Ministries
Beneficiary Address: 244 West Valley Avenue Suite 206 Birmingham, AL 35209
Beneficiary Phone Number: 205-777-4017
Tax ID# of Beneficiary: 54-2145378​
