Ways to Give
Help Now: Annual Giving
Simpson Senior Services benefits each year from annual gifts that are made in support of our mission. Those individuals who support our vision enable us to expand our ministry and continue to provide quality senior living services.
Memorial and Honorary Tributes
Commemorative gifts offer the opportunity to honor someone special or memorialize a loved one. They can celebrate a birthday or anniversary or simply pay lasting tribute to a life well lived.
We are grateful to the many friends and supporters who have chosen to ensure the future success of our communities by making a provision for a Simpson Senior Services community in their wills. By leaving a legacy to Simpson Senior Services, you make a gift that will endure for generations.
Whether a bequest is in cash, securities, real estate or other property, there are several forms that can be used to accomplish your purpose. A bequest may be made outright (a specific dollar amount or percentage of the estate) or created to take effect after provisions have been made for others. It is not necessary to rewrite your will to provide for the future of a Simpson Senior Services community. A simple codicil, or addition, will suffice.
Charitable Gift Annuities
Your contribution to a Simpson Senior Services community can be made with a charitable gift annuity, which provides you with an immediate income tax deduction plus guaranteed income for life. If you choose, it can also include a second income recipient. The income is fixed, regardless of market fluctuations, and is determined by the size of your gift, your age and the age of your beneficiary. For a personal no-obligation illustration of how a charitable gift annuity might benefit you, please use our planned giving calculator.
Contributions of life insurance can provide a substantial gift to a Simpson Senior Services community. The value of an ordinary policy at the time of the gift is tax deductible. If you continue paying the premiums, they also are deductible as charitable contributions. If a paid-up policy is given, the cost of purchasing a new paid-up policy at your current age is the value of the charitable deduction.
There are many types of retirement plans. For some, the value drops to zero when the beneficiary dies, but others such as 401(k) plans and IRAs have a residual value that becomes part of the estate of the deceased. Taxes have never been paid on this residual, so they are assessed against the persons who receive the assets. They may be gifted to a charitable organization tax-free with full credit for the amount of the gift.
The official registration and financial information of Simpson Senior Services and its family of communities may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by calling toll-free, within Pennsylvania, 1-800-732-0999. Registration does not imply endorsement.
It is important that you contact your financial or legal advisor prior to making a gift to discuss your individual situation.
