Donor Advised Funds

Fayetteville Academy welcomes donors to recommend grants from their Donor Advised Funds, also known as a DAF.

Life insurance and Donor Advised Fund Beneficiary Language

As with retirement plans, naming Fayetteville Academy as the beneficiary  of a life insurance policy or your donor advised fund is as simple as filling out a change of beneficiary form with  your plan/fund administrator. Be sure to let us know you have named us as the beneficiary so that we can contact the insurance company to fund at the appropriate time and put your gift to work as you intend.


Retirement Plan Beneficiary Language

Naming Fayetteville Academy as he beneficiary or a qualified retirement plan asset such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, or profit-sharing plan will accomplish your charitable goals while realizing significant tax savings. It can be costly to pass such assets on to heirs because of heavy tax consequences. By naming Fayetteville  Academy as a beneficiary of all or a percentage of your retirement plan, you maintain complete control over the assets while living, but at the time of your passing, the remaining assets pass to Fayetteville Academy free to both estate and income taxes.

Making a charitable gift from you retirement plan is easy. Simply fill out a change of beneficiary form obtained from your administrator and notify us. We can also assist you with the proper language for your beneficiary  designation to Fayetteville Academy.


Wills and Trust

A bequest is a gift that comes directly to Fayetteville Academy upon your passing. It’s flexible in that it can be revised at any time as your circumstances change. An outright bequest is fully deductible for estate tax  purposes.  The most common and useful bequest is an unrestricted bequest, allowing Fayetteville Academy to use your gift wherever needed. However, if there is a particular area you wish to support, the Planned Giving Office will work with you to help ensure that your request is directed appropriately.


Residual Bequest Language

A residual bequest comes to us after your estate expenses and specific bequest are paid:

I give and devise to Fayetteville Academy, located in Fayetteville, NC, all (or state a percentage) of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to be used where it determines the need is greatest for support of a specific fund or program.
