Little Beaver Cemetery Association's primary purpose is to maintain an endowment fund for the perpetual care and operation of Little Beaver Cemetery. Your generous financial support allows us to maintain, preserve and improve the Cemetery grounds. We are a Non-Profit Association and your financial contribution may provide you with tax benefits.
Ways to contribute:
In Memory or In Honor
An "In Memory" or "In Honor" donation is a wonderful way to support Little Beaver Cemetery and to share special thoughts of loved ones or commemorate a birthday, graduation, marriage, or celebration of a person’s life.
A bequest in your current Will or Living Trust allows you to pass assets to Little Beaver Cemetery free of estate tax. You may give cash, specific property, a percentage of your estate, or a specific dollar amount, all with or without restrictions.
Charitable Gift Annuities
A contract which a charity (Little Beaver Cemetery Association) agrees to pay a fixed amount of money to one or two individuals for their lifetime, in return for a transfer of cash, marketable securities or assets. The annuity payment is a tax free return of principal which will provide the donor with an income.
Life Insurance Gift
You can name Little Beaver Cemetery as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Your estate will receive an estate tax deduction for the gift because proceeds are not included in your estate.
IRA Asset Gifts
You can name Little Beaver Cemetery as a beneficiary on an IRA account leaving all or some of the assets to the Cemetery. No income or estate tax are due when the money is donated. When an IRA is designated to the Cemetery, your estate will receive an estate tax charitable deduction.
Appreciated stock donations can provide a charitable tax deduction and you are not taxed on the capital gain that would result if you sold the stock.
Please consult with a professional financial planner, accountant or estate attorney to determine how your gift may affect your overall financial plans.
