Every member of the AXYS community should have an up-to-date will. We hope you will consider AXYS as one of your beneficiaries.
Please consult your attorney or financial planner with any questions.
Outright Bequest (Unrestricted)
An outright bequest, in which you leave the Association for X and Y Chromosome Variations (AXYS) a specified dollar amount or specified assets, such as securities, real estate or tangible property is considered unrestricted if the gift is intended for general support of AXYS at the discretion of the Executive Director and the Board of Directors.
Consider one of the four options listed below when making your estate plans. The following language may be used when you create your will, trust, or add a codicil to your existing will:
I give, devise, and bequeath to AXYS, Tax Identification Number 33-0395993:
- the sum of $____________;
- ____________% of my estate;
- the following securities, real estate or tangible property____________; or
- ____________% of the remainder of my estate after specific amounts are bequeathed to other beneficiaries and estate-related expenses are paid
If you have any questions, please consult with the AXYS Executive Director or the Board of Directors Chairperson to assure that your planned gift will be implemented according to your wishes. We can be contacted at 1- (888) 999-9428 or by email at email@example.com. Please mail us a hard copy of this completed FORM to the address listed below. Alternatively, you may email us the completed form.
Outright Bequest (Restricted)
Donors may restrict the use of their bequests for a specific area of charitable support.
This requires additional language in your estate planning documents, such as the following:
“The property comprising this gift shall be used for (state purpose). If the need for funds for the charitable purpose described above no longer exists at some future date, the Executive Director or the Board of Directors are authorized to use these funds in the best interest of AXYS.”
Avoid capital gains tax on securities held long term and receive an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value on the date received by AXYS. Electronic transfer is the preferred method for stock transfer.
Shares can be transferred directly from your broker to AXYS’s brokerage account.
Our broker is TD Ameritrade – DTC #0188, AXYS Account Number 49862731 and the toll free number is 1-800-454-9272.
Please notify us of a stock or mutual fund transfer by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Should you have a life insurance policy that has outlived its original purpose, you might consider putting the money to work for AXYS.
You can amend the existing policy so that AXYS is the beneficiary, or you can take a policy on which you have paid some of the premiums and give it to AXYS, claiming as an income tax deduction on the present value of the policy. Please consult your attorney or financial planner with any questions you may have.
