Planned Giving

Give a Gift For the Future

Planned gifts offer you the opportunity to plan for the future - yours, your family, and the lives you can change by supporting the ReDiscover Foundation. Planned gifts allow your personal values to make a lasting impact on the world and can inspire others to do the same. These gifts pass down your values to your children and grandchildren while teaching them the importance of using resources wisely to help others. There are several planned giving vehicles, that allow you to reduce your estate and income taxes, maximize the financial and tax benefits of your gift and make a larger gift than you ever thought possible.

Ways to Make a Planned Gift to ReDiscover

Outright Gifts

Can include stock, real estate, mineral rights, and tangible personal property. It is not limited to just cash gifts.

Appreciated Securities

Claim a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the securities or real estate to ReDiscover. You will not pay capital gains taxes on the appreciation.


Establish a specific dollar amount or percentage in your will or trust for ReDiscover. Use similar language: "I, give, devise and bequeath to ReDiscover currently located at 901 NE Independence Ave., Lee's Summit, MO 64086; Federal Tax ID #: 23-7169417 [written amount or percentage of the estate] for its unrestricted use and purpose."

Life Insurance Policy

A life insurance policy is flexible, cost-effective, and in many cases a tax-advantaged way to make a major gift that will benefit ReDiscover.

Life Income Gifts

Give philanthropic support during your lifetime, while still providing a charitable income tax deduction and an income stream from the asset for life.
