4. Make a Gift of Stock

You may include Touro Law in your will as a direct beneficiary or contingent beneficiary. Please let us know if you have included Touro Law Center in your will so that we have the opportunity to recognize your philanthropy during your lifetime. Your gift is not binding on you or your estate, but informing us of your current plans will help us plan for the Law School’s future.
6. Planned Giving
A growing number of alumni and friends have chosen to provide future support for the Law School through their financial or estate plans. This process is known as “planned giving,” and the gifts are known as “planned gifts.” Planned gifts offers several ways to make a charitable donation, that not only help to create a legacy for the law school, but also offering potential tax advantages, while retaining the benefit of lifetime income for the donor. A planned gift may also allow you to make a much larger gift, and create a more significant legacy, than you might imagine possible. A planned gift may be revocable, giving you the flexibility to alter your plans if your circumstances change, or irrevocable, often making you eligible for a current income tax deduction and a reliable payment stream for the rest of your life. Charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and life insurance gifts are among the several instruments available.
7. Special Charitable IRA Rollover Opportunity
If you are 70 1/2
or older and receive a mandatory IRA distribution in 2013, you may make a 2013 Charitable IRA Rollover gift to Touro Law Center. This is a tax-free charitable gift transferred directly from your IRA to the Law Center. You can transfer any amount up to $100,000. Please click here
