It only takes three, simple steps to make this type of gift. Here's how to name Aurora University/George Williams College of Aurora University as a beneficiary:
Robert and Carol treasure the financial help they've been able to give their children and AU/GWC over the years. The couple recently updated their will to leave stocks and real estate to their kids. They left AU/GWC a $75,000 IRA to be transferred following their lifetime. Because AU/GWC is tax-exempt, all $75,000 will help support our mission.
If Robert and Carol had left the IRA to their children, approximately $18,000* would have gone to pay federal income taxes-leaving only $57,000 for their family's use. Robert and Carol are happy knowing they are making the most of their hard-earned money thanks to their updated estate plan.
*Based on an assumption of a 24 percent marginal income tax bracket.
