LIFE INSURANCE
Name the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville as the owner and/or beneficiary of a life insurance policy. If the policy has a cash value, you may take a charitable deduction equal to the cash value of the policy at the time you make the gift. Payment of the annual premium can also be considered a charitable deduction.

TRIBUTE GIFTS
Memorial or Honorarium gifts can be made in memory of or in honor of a family member, classmate, Sister, faculty member, graduation class, anniversary year or anyone you choose to honor.

PLANNED GIFTS
Making a deferred or planned gift to the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville can be a tax-smart way to support the Sisters’ mission and ministries. Gift commitments through a will or trust, for qualified retirement plans such as a 401(k) or IRA, RMD (Required Minimum Distribution), or life insurance, offer ways to assist the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville while lessening the tax burden on your estate and on your heirs.

STOCK AND SECURITIES
Gifts of stock offer a two-fold tax advantage. First, you receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date the gift is given. Second, you avoid paying the high capital gains tax on the increase of value of your stock.
