Types of Gifts
Retirement plan assets

You can name Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation as a beneficiary of all or a portion of your life insurance policy. With this gift arrangement, Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation will receive the proceeds of your policy after your lifetime. You can change your beneficiary at any time and may reduce your estate taxes.
Bank or brokerage accounts
This is one of the easiest gifts to give and one of the most useful in accomplishing your philanthropic goals. The next time you visit your bank, you can name Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation (Tax ID: 84-4265021) as the beneficiary of a checking or savings bank account, a certificate of deposit (CD), or a brokerage account. When you do, you’ll take a powerful step toward ensuring the excellence of Catholic elementary education for generations to come.
Funds remaining in your donor-advised fund
What remains in a donor-advised fund is governed by the contract you completed when you created your fund.
