Include Stanford Jazz Workshop in your estate or financial plans and you and your loved ones may enjoy tax or income advantages while Stanford Jazz Workshop receives critical support. Here are two ways you can help us today:
- If you are at least 70½ years old, make a qualified charitable distribution from your tax-deferred IRA. By transferring funds directly from your IRA to us, you can satisfy required minimum distributions for the year and enjoy advantages over taking a taxable distribution and then contributing the proceeds. The law regarding this convenient and beneficial option was recently made permanent.
- Name Stanford Jazz Workshop as a beneficiary in your will, trust, life insurance policy, retirement account, or other estate plan.
Another way to help us today and in the years to come is to contribute to our Endowment Fund. Your gift, subject to certain minimums and conditions, will be invested, and the annual return will fund key programs.
