Leave a Legacy
A Gift in Your Will
Including The Bail Project in your will or trust is a meaningful way to help protect people experiencing poverty from pretrial incarceration for generations to come.
Life insurance provides a safety net for those who depend on you financially. But did you know a life insurance policy also can allow you to leave a legacy for organizations and causes that are important to you? Get more information about naming The Bail Project as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
Retirement assets are one of the most beneficial gifts you can give to The Bail Project. Federal law allows people age 70½ or older to make direct transfers up to $100,000 per year per person to charitable organizations from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA), without the withdrawal being treated as taxable income. The withdrawal can be counted toward your Required Minimum Distribution, and these funds grow tax-free until the time of withdrawal.
