Planned Giving

Securing Support.

Embracing the concept of planned giving is a powerful way to make a lasting impact and demonstrate your deep-rooted support for LASSB’s mission. We understand the importance of making this process simple and compelling for you as a valued donor.

For over six decades, the Legal Aid Society of San Bernardino has been unwaveringly dedicated to providing pro bono legal assistance to economically disadvantaged individuals in San Bernardino and Riverside County. Your planned gift to LASSB not only highlights your trust in our mission but also signifies your enduring commitment to upholding justice for all.

By including LASSB in your estate plan, you have the unique opportunity to become a vital part of a legacy that ensures justice remains accessible to those in need for generations to come. Your contribution, no matter the size, will have a profound and lasting effect, and we are here to simplify the process and guide you every step of the way.

Retirement Plan Assets

Naming LASSB as the recipient of a qualified retirement plan, such as an IRA, 401(k), 403(b), Keogh plan, or other profit-sharing plan, offers an excellent way to fulfill your charitable intentions while enjoying substantial tax benefits. You have several flexible options when designating LASSB as a beneficiary for your retirement plan assets.

Firstly, you can opt to designate LASSB as the sole beneficiary, ensuring that your support goes entirely towards our mission. Alternatively, you can name LASSB alongside other individuals or entities as beneficiaries, specifying the distribution of a particular amount or percentage to each recipient. Lastly, you can assign LASSB as a contingent beneficiary, ensuring that our organization receives the retirement plan assets only in the event that the primary beneficiary is no longer alive.

A charitable gift of retirement plan assets to LASSB holds the potential to diminish estate taxes and income taxes that may be imposed on the remaining assets in your retirement accounts upon your passing. For a comprehensive understanding of the tax advantages associated with contributing retirement plan assets to LASSB, we recommend consulting with your accountant.
