Give Beyond Your Years ~ Planned Giving to The Outdoor Circle
For the last 108 years, The Outdoor Circle’s founders and members made a commitment to beautify and green our islands by providing large shade trees and the visual blight-free environment we enjoy today in our island home.
We invite you to place The Outdoor Circle in your planned giving, in whatever form is appropriate for you, knowing that your gift will continue to live on in perpetuity and bless our community with beauty for generations to come.
A planned gift to The Outdoor Circle makes your core values known and expresses your forward-thinking while supporting the long-term success for an organization whose work you value.
You need not be wealthy to leave a legacy gift. Gifts in any amount, small and large, are greatly appreciated. We encourage you to consult with your financial advisor to discuss making a gift or bequest to The Outdoor Circle.
In addition to supporting our work through your generous donation, here are other ways you can contribute to the sustainability of The Outdoor Circle in the long-term, for both the present and future:
Simply naming The Outdoor Circle as a beneficiary in your will and living trust gifts a bequest for a particular dollar amount, other gift, or percentage of your estate.
If you are age 70-1/2 or older, you may instruct your IRA custodian to transfer any amount up to $100,000 directly to the Outdoor Circle. While this distribution to The Outdoor Circle would not be included in your taxable income, nor produce a tax deduction, it could fulfill some or all of your 2020 Required Minimum Distribution while supporting our mission. This is one of the easiest and best ways to include The Outdoor Circle in your long-term gift giving.
Life Insurance Policy and Retirement Plan Assets
Often overlooked by donors, naming The Outdoor Circle as a partial or full beneficiary of your retirement fund assets, such as IRA, 401(k) or 403(b), can provide support for the organization to further its mission.
Life Income and Complex Gifts
Life income gifts allow you to leave a gift in the care of The Outdoor Circle, while receiving income during your lifetime. The two most popular life income gifts are Charitable Remainder Trusts and Charitable Gift Annuities. Please contact us or your financial advisor for more information. We work with the Hawai‘i Community Foundation, as needed, to realize these gifts.
If you are a business owner, own real property, or have any other type of complex asset, please contact us for different giving options.
For more information or guidance on planned giving, please contact us at 808-593-0300.
Mahalo for including The Outdoor Circle in your current and planned giving which will help uphold a legacy organization that has kept a vision of beauty in our island home for over a century.
