The Webb Center “Legacy Society” offers you the opportunity to join others who have made a charitable contribution to the Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts through a bequest or estate plan. Remembering the Center through a planned gift ensures that our programs and services will remain viable for years to come while advancing your own financial plan.
The reason for making a gift to the Webb Center may be different for each donor – to honor a loved one, to support a tradition of excellence or to express gratitude for a service well-performed. Whatever the motivation for your gift, a planned gift can give you the assurance that you are a good steward of your assets by increasing the benefits for yourself, family members, and the organization receiving the gift.
Planned Giving and the Legacy Society
Planned giving is any gift given for any amount and purpose for current or deferred use. As a donor, you have the option to choose between an unrestricted or restricted gift – you can determine how your gift will be used. Please view our “Creating a Lasting Legacy” document to learn more about supporting Webb Center programs for the future.
Planned Gift Options
Bequests – A provision made in your will leaving the Webb Center cash, stock or other assets. Gifts reduce estate taxes while creating a charitable legacy.
Charitable Trusts – A charitable lead trust or remainder trust provides options to transfer assets to a trust that results in tax savings and a fixed or variable income for years.
Retirement Plan Assets – Assets left to the Webb Center can help donor avoid both estate and income taxation. Gifts from individual retirement accounts and qualified retirement plans offer distinct tax advantages.
Life Insurance Policies – Donors can transfer the ownership of an existing policy to the Webb Center or purchase life insurance naming the Center as the beneficiary.
IRA Charitable Rollover – The law allows individuals 70½ and older the ability to transfer up to $100,000 directly from their individual retirement accounts to a qualified charitable organization without being subject to income taxes on the distribution.
Please work with your attorney or financial advisor to make the appropriate decision for you and your estate.
