A charitable bequest, or estate gift, is an excellent way to provide for the needs of HLA long after you’ve passed away—we appreciate your support and encouragement of our pro-life efforts.

Adding HLA to your will could be as simple as inserting the following text:

“I bequeath to Human Life Alliance (1614 93rd Lane NE, Blaine, Minnesota 55449) the sum of [dollar amount or percentage] of the residue of my estate to be used at the discretion of its governing board.”

A statement of this nature is among the easiest and most popular, providing a meaningful gift that will allow us to determine the wisest use of the funds at the time of reception. Of course, if you would like to dedicate funds to a particular part of our mission, the board of directors would be pleased to carry out your wishes. If you choose the latter option, you may want to contact us to ensure that we understand how to best carryout your intentions.

When you approach your legal representative to add HLA to your will, you will likely need a copy of our IRS determination letter noting HLA’s 501(c)(3) status and EIN. (See link to financial PDF)

When your documents are drawn up, please consider sending us some sort of notification so that we might properly thank you for your kindness.

Gifts of stock or other securities are an important way for you to support HLA’s pro-life mission. Typically, it’s beneficial to donate appreciated securities in order to bypass capital gains taxes due had you sold your securities directly in the market. You may also be eligible for a charitable deduction based on the fair market value.

It’s important you notify HLA of your securities donation so we can confirm acceptance in our transfer account as well as know where to send a thank you receipt. Your broker may not share this information with us.

You will need to know the following information to make a stock transfer:
Account owner: Human Life Alliance

There are three ways to use life insurance as a charitable gift to HLA.

  • Designate Human Life Alliance to receive all or part of the death benefit on a beneficiary designation form.
  • Transfer ownership of a life insurance policy to HLA. You can choose to continue paying the premiums, if any, and earn charitable tax deductions for those gifts.
  • Consider additional insurance options such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust.

Life insurance can be attractive for charitably giving—regular relatively small premiums can create a significant death benefit for HLA. When you give ownership of a policy that has some cash value, you may earn a charitable income tax deduction. When you give ownership of a policy and pay ongoing premiums, you may earn an income tax deduction for the gift of each premium payment. Some forms of life insurance require very little or no medical examination, limit premium payments for a fixed period of time, and/or allow you to invest the cash value for an even greater potential death benefit.

A charitable gift of real estate is an opportunity to make what could be your largest charitable donation ever. Donating an asset that may otherwise be a burden to remaining family members could also provide special tax-saving benefits.

Some information to consider on real estate gifts:

  • You may earn an income tax charitable deduction, and avoid capital gain tax liability.
  • A special opportunity exists to leave a house or farm to HLA in the future, at your death, and yet receive an income tax charitable deduction now for a large portion of the property’s value.
  • It may be possible to give the real estate and receive a regular income for life.
  • The real estate gift might otherwise have been a management and disposal headache for you or your loved ones.
  • If you have income-producing real estate you would like to pass on to heirs (or a combination of real estate and a liquid asset), you may be able to pass the real estate to heirs with a significant deduction (sometimes elimination) of gift taxes, through a Charitable Lead Trust. The real estate and any growth in value may pass to heirs estate-tax free.
  • If you, or your business, have income-producing real estate and wish to hold it for long-term growth, you may place the real estate in a Grantor Charitable Lead Trust, and have the income go to HLA for a period of years, earn a large charitable income tax deduction (but pay tax on income as it is received), and then receive the property back at the end of the chosen period.
