Our Circle of Life
Join a special group of men and women who believe in our long-term mission and want to protect life, both now and in future generations. They support us through a variety of planned, charitable gifts to our Endowment Fund. Planning now for distributing your assets after your death will ensure that those individuals and institutions you care most about will benefit from your generosity. For example, a charitable bequest in your will allows you to retain your assets during your lifetime and/or the lifetime of your spouse. You may make a bequest for a fixed amount of a certain percentage of your estate. Leaving a legacy for the unborn can help you protect more of your estate from the IRS while ensuring your assets benefit those about whom you care. Other options for planned giving include a Charitable Lead Trust, a Charitable Remainder Trust, and a Charitable Gift Annuity. For information on these and other methods of planned giving, click here to access our Endowment Fund brochure. For assistance in establishing any of these arrangements, please call us a 937-461-3625 or email. This information is not intended as legal, tax or investment advice. Always consult an attorney, tax professional or investment professional.
You can also celebrate the life of a deceased loved one with a memorial gift or honor a loved one's anniversary or other special occasion with an honorarium gift. A special card noting your gift is sent to your loved one's family and their names are published in our quarterly newsletter.
Donate Your Car
You can donate your old vehicle to the Dayton Right to Life Foundation. We will provide you with a written acknowledgment of the donation, including the information to claim the charitable contribution on your tax return. IRS Publication 526 Charitable Contributions and IRS Publication 561 Determining the Value of Donated Property both apply. In particular, if you donate a qualified vehicle with a claimed fair market value of more than $500, you can deduct the smaller of the gross proceeds from the sale of the vehicle by Dayton Right to Life or the vehicle's fair market value on the date of the contribution. To donate your vehicle, please contact us at 937-461-3625.
