Simple Ways to Give That Cost You Nothing!

A gift in your will or trust – or any other planned gift – allows you to make a significant contribution to Tulsa’s battle against homelessness, and still provide for your own security during your lifetime. Through your commitment to the Tulsa Day Center, you can support a cause that is important to you and the Tulsa community, while leaving a lasting legacy.

Naming the Tulsa Day Center as the beneficiary of an account is a simple way to give and doesn’t cost you any money or a trip to your attorney’s office. You can name the Tulsa Day Center as the beneficiary of any of these accounts:

  • Checking, savings, or other financial accounts
  • Life insurance policies
  • Individual Retirement Accounts or 401Ks
  • Commercial Annuities

Simply contact your bank, insurance company, or retirement account administrator, and request a beneficiary designation form.

For purposes of completing the form, the Day Center’s legal name and address is:

Tulsa Day Center, Inc.
PO Box 1019
Tulsa, OK 74101-1019

Federal Tax Identification Number: 73-1557819

Please provide a copy of the completed beneficiary designation form to the Tulsa Day Center for its records.

Life Insurance Policies

You can donate a paid-up insurance policy to the Tulsa Day Center, designating it as the owner of the policy.

OR, you can designate the Tulsa Day Center as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy. (Please note that, although we appreciate your gift, the Day Center is unable to pay the premiums on your insurance policy.)

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)

You can list the Tulsa Day Center as a beneficiary on your IRA, or under legislation enacted in December 2015, you may be able to make a gift to the Day Center with a distribution from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and take advantage of tax savings.  Here’s how this charitable rollover works:

  • You must be 70 ½ or older at the time of distribution.
  • Your gift counts toward your required minimum distributed, but
    is not included in your income for tax purposes.
  • Even if you do not itemize your deductions, you benefit by removing your distribution from your taxable income.
  • Your IRA administrator must make the distribution directly to the Tulsa Day Center, or you may write a check payable to the Day Center if you have an IRA checkbook

Gifts in Your Will or Living Trust

A gift to the Tulsa Day Center in your will or trust, also known as a charitable
bequest, allows you to retain control of your funds and other assets during your

  • Gifts in your will can be modified or revoked for any reason during your lifetime.
  • Gifts in your will are exempt from estate taxes.

Please provide a copy of the Memo of Trust or other document to the Tulsa Day Center for its records.

  • Living trust: A clause similar to a will bequest will implement a charitable gift to the Day Center through a living trust.
  • Retirement plan gift: Donors can designate the Day Center as a beneficiary in Individual Retirement Accounts and 401(s) plans. Some donors are able to make a gift directly from their retirement plans.
  • Life insurance gift: Your client can donate a policy or simply name the Day Center as a beneficiary.
  • Charitable gift annuity: A gift annuity transfers donor assets to the Day Center in exchange for our promise to pay a lifetime annuity. An annuity provides both income, some of which may be tax-free, and estate tax deductions, as well as capital gains tax benefits.
  • Charitable life income trust: Your client can make a large gift while retaining income during his lifetime. Some charitable trusts provide substantial tax benefits and capital gains tax avoidance.
  • Real estate gift: Real estate gifts come in a variety of sizes and arrangements. Some allow donors to make a gift, obtain a charitable tax deduction, and remain in the property for their lifetime. Some may provide benefit by capital gains tax avoidance.
