AlumniCorps’s Statements of Solidarity
Members of the Keystone Society have committed to ensuring the stability and long-term health of Princeton AlumniCorps through a planned gift. The Keystone Society is our way of saying thank you for remembering AlumniCorps in your estate plans. Please let us know in writing when you have included AlumniCorps in your will or as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy. That’s all we need to welcome you as a member of the Keystone Society. Unless otherwise designated by you, Keystone Society gifts will be added to the AlumniCorps endowment.
Special recognition at an annual event to celebrate Keystone Society members. At the event, new members are presented with an elegant lapel pin, in honor of their lasting contribution to Princeton AlumniCorps.
Free admission to all ticketed AlumniCorps events.
Recognition in organizational communications, including on our website, in our annual report, and through features in our newsletter.
There are a number of ways Keystone members can support AlumniCorps, both in the near term or through a planned gift:
A Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from a retirement account is a way Keystone members can support AlumniCorps as soon as age 70-1/2. While the age for Required Minimum Distributions from retirement accounts has been pushed back to age 72, AlumniCorps supporters can still make Qualifying Charitable Contributions at age 70-1/2 in amounts up to $100,000 per year.
More interested in a planned gift? Consider these major ways our members give:
Wills & Trusts: The easiest way to make a planned gift is to name Princeton AlumniCorps as the beneficiary for a specific amount or percentage of your estate. This may be done by adding a codicil to an existing will. Specific instructions can be provided by your lawyer, estate planner, or tax advisor.
Retirement Plans & Life Insurance: Princeton AlumniCorps may be named as a beneficiary of an existing insurance policy, IRA, or another qualified retirement plan.
Other Ways to Give: These include charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, and retired life estate.
Donors should be advised by a competent independent estate planner or financial advisor. Princeton AlumniCorps is not a source of legal, tax, or financial advice to the donor.
