Plan A Future Gift in Support of the Arts
Including The Naples Players in your estate planning can help your love of the arts live on for future generations.
Ways to Make a Legacy Gift
Making a bequest, or a gift noted in your will or living trust, to The Naples Players is a simple yet impactful way to ensure your love of the arts is recognized for generations to come. Bequests can be a specific amount, percentage, or remainder of assets. As with all legacy gifts, we advise you to consult your legal representative or your intentions.
An example of simple bequest language that may be added to your will or living trust is as follows: “I give and bequeath ______% of my total estate (or $_____) to The Naples Players, a nonprofit organization located at 701 5th Avenue South, Naples, Florida 34102 Federal Tax ID #59-6154976, for general use and purpose.”
A beneficiary designation allows you to plan for making a substantial gift upon your passing. Beneficiary gifs are oftentimes larger than what you could afford during your lifetime and can make a substantial impact on continuing our mission. You and your financial advisor or attorney may designate The Naples Players as the primary or contingent beneficiary of your:
- IRA account
- 401k account
- Life insurance plan
- Payable on death (POD) account
NOTE: Several large financial services companies explicitly state that they have no obligation to notify charitable beneficiaries of your gift after your lifetime. If we don’t know about your gift, we can’t act to make sure your wishes are carried out. Please let us know of your gift intentions directly by calling TNP Executive Director Bryce Alexander at (239) 434-7340, Ext. 124.
Charitable Gift Annuities
A charitable gift annuity is usually a cash or stock gift that allows you to support The Naples Players while receiving a tax deduction and fixed income from a charity for the remainder of that term (usually until your passing). We recommend you speak with your financial advisor or attorney on the benefits of a charitable gift annuity and notify us to customize your intentions and plan.
