Planned Giving

Find Best Gift

To help you determine your ideal gift to NEHGS, we offer an easy-to-use web tool. It's just a few questions. Give it a try!

Beneficiary Designation

While you may transfer many of your assets through your will or living trust, a document called a beneficiary designation controls distribution of your retirement plans, life insurance policies, commercial annuities and a variety of financial accounts.


A charitable gift from your estate is a favored method of giving that enables you to achieve your financial goals, maintain control of your assets, and benefit NEHGS.

Giving and Generating Income

Planned giving is a great way to support NEHGS while generating income for yourself and your family. Learn how these gifts allow you to achieve both of these goals.

IRA Distributions

You can make an immediate tax-free gift by directly transferring to NEHGS up to $100,000 annually from your traditional IRA or Roth IRA (other qualified retirement plans such as 401(k)s and 403(b)s are not eligible). You must be at least 70 ½ years old to take advantage of this opportunity.

Compare Gifts

The planned gift that is best for you depends on your goals for the gift. We’ve created a chart that lets you compare the characteristics of your choice of gift plans.
