Planned Giving

Marine Toys for Tots Program

After you take care of your loved ones in your estate plans, please consider remembering America’s less fortunate children in your will or living trust.

Giving through your will: Your will is a legal document that coordinates the distribution of your assets after death.  Leaving some of your assets to a charity is a very popular way of giving and can be arranged now to create a lasting legacy.

Giving through a trust: A trust can be created to manage your assets during and beyond your living years and are often used to minimize estate taxes.  Trusts can be arranged in many ways and can specify exactly how and when your assets pass to your designated beneficiaries.  One benefit of a charitable trust includes allowing you to donate to charities of your choice during and after your lifetime while also receiving significant tax savings for you and your beneficiaries.

Legal Name:Marine Toys for Tots Foundation
Address:18251 Quantico Gateway Dr
Triangle, VA 22172
Federal Tax ID Number:20-3021444

An easy way to ensure disadvantaged children are not forgotten at Christmas is to name the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation as a beneficiary of your IRA, retirement plan or life insurance policy.

Simply contact your retirement plan administrator, insurance company or financial institution for a change of beneficiary form.  You can decide what percentage you would like the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to receive and indicate your wishes on the beneficiary form and return the form.

If you are 70 ½ or older, you can use a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) in place of a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for potential tax benefits.  You can donate annually directly from your IRA that could reduce your adjusted gross income qualifying you for tax breaks.

To make it easier for you, we’ve partnered with FreeWill to provide an online resource so you can learn more and get started on a QCD quickly and easily. This tool is safe, secure, and makes communicating with your IRA custodian simple — it takes 10 minutes or less and is completely free. Click here to get started.
