Planned Giving

Planned gifts (also known as legacy gifts) allow you to have a direct and lasting impact on the community. For many donors, planned giving is an opportunity to make a more substantial gift than may be possible during their lifetime. We ask you to consider these forms of charitable giving to support our mission — to help save lives:

  • Gifts of Securities: Donors may give publicly traded appreciated securities.
  • Bequests: A donor may name the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico as a beneficiary of his or her will; either with a designated amount, a percentage, or as a recipient of funds after other beneficiaries have received their bequests. 
  • Gifts of Life Insurance: Donors may either purchase a policy or give a policy that they already own. 
  • Gifts from Retirement Plans: A donor of any age can make a deferred gift of an IRA or other retirement account by naming the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico as a beneficiary.
  • Charitable Trusts: A variety of trust arrangements are available that offer benefits to both the donor and the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico.

We welcome the opportunity to work with donors, attorneys, financial planners, and other professionals to design a gift that is appropriate and meets your goals. We suggest you consult your professional advisors. Your gift is tax deductible to the extent allowable by the law.
