Making a charitable gift through your will or estate plans is a simple and impactful way to support our youth of tomorrow.
As you move through your estate planning process, please keep in mind that there are many ways to support Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation in your will and they range from bequests to gift annuities to gifts from retirement plan assets to gifts of insurance, and each gift supports getting more kids out shooting. For more information on planned giving , please feel free to contact Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation board member, Mark Wade or Executive Director, Ben Berka.
The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) has directly benefited from members of the shooting sports community intent on leaving a legacy to future generations of young athletes.
In 2014, National Skeet Shooting Association (NSSA) member Charles Gates passed. Unbeknownst to either organization at the time, Mr. Gates had structured his estate to donate his prized Krieghoff shotgun collection to be sold, with the proceeds to specifically support the youth shooting initiatives of both the NSSA and the SSSF.
While his estate benefited from the tax advantages of planned giving, his thoughtfulness also enabled him to further his passion to support youth shooting long after his passing.
It is also a wonderful example of the power of planned giving which can benefit your personal estate as well as charitable 501(c)(3) organizations like the SSSF.
Note: These examples are only suggestions. If you’re considering becoming a contributor, you should consult your legal counsel to review and fit your individual situation.
