Are you over 70½ years old? If so, consider making your annual contribution to the Institute for Justice using your required minimum IRA distribution. You may receive a tax benefit even if you take the standard deduction! You can read more about this type of gift and its benefits at ij.org/IRA-gifts.
You can also make IJ a beneficiary of an IRA or other retirement account. A beneficiary designation gift does not require meeting with an attorney. All you need to do is ask your plan administrator for a beneficiary designation form, which you return directly to them. These gifts offer flexibility as they can be revoked or modified if your plans or circumstances change. And because of the unfavorable tax consequences of leaving tax-deferred accounts to individual beneficiaries, these assets can be particularly good candidates for charitable giving: As a charitable gift, the full amount of the bequest goes to IJ and our fight for liberty.
