Multi-Year Pledges
You may set up recurring payments by completing a Multi-Year Pledge Form and mailing or faxing it to the LAF office. (Fax: 202-331-7079) On the form, select how frequently you wish to be invoiced for your pledge (once or twice per year or quarterly). Gifts are recognized upon receipt of the signed gift confirmation form.

Gift of Securities
Gifts of appreciated securities offer an opportunity to make a substantial gift to LAF and avoid capital gains taxes. The donor may also use the gift as a charitable tax donation. Once notified of the intent to make a gift of securities, LAF will provide the donor with instructions for submitting the transfer.

Life Insurance
Donors may name LAF the beneficiary of a life insurance policy, thereby reducing the donor’s taxable estate while making a contribution to LAF.

A bequest allows the donor to support the Landscape Architecture Foundation beyond the donor’s lifetime while providing a reduction in the donor’s taxable estate. Through a will or a codicil to an existing will, you may leave LAF a specific dollar amount, a specific asset, or a designated percentage of the estate. These bequests may be restricted for a specific purpose or may be unrestricted.

Tribute Gifts
Tribute gifts may be requested for oneself, a family member, friend or colleague in honor of a special occasion or achievement. Donors may also make a tribute gift in memory of a loved one in lieu of flowers or other forms of acknowledgement.

If one of these ways of giving is of interest to you, please contact Amanda Libman at 202.331.7070 x10. Please seek the services of a professional for legal, accounting or tax advice.
