WAYS TO GIVE…
When you give to QVS you are supporting young adults engage in Spirit-led service and community, increasing the capacity of organizations that aim to change unjust social structures, and enriching Quaker meetings. Whether an outright gift or a planned gift, you are connecting your life story to lives and stories of the young adults carrying on the baton of work and service that is so deeply a part of our identity as a Quaker organization.
“I had no idea that this dynamic, alive faith lived inside of me, and I’ve only begun to listen to and explore it… My QVS year has been the start of feeling out what my Quakerism is, how it moves, and where it will lead me if I let it.”

Invest in the Future of QVS
Include QVS in Your Estate Plans: The simplest way to support QVS through a planned gift is to name QVS as a beneficiary in your will. The bequest can be a percentage of one’s estate, a specific dollar amount, or a piece of property.
Add QVS as a Beneficiary of your IRA: Naming QVS as the beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan asset such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, Keogh or profit-sharing pension plan will accomplish a charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings. When you designate QVS as the beneficiary for all or part of your qualified retirement plan assets, those assets pass to us free of any tax. However, when these assets are passed to your heirs (other than your surviving spouse), they are subject to federal income tax and may also be subject to federal estate tax (depending upon the value of your estate) as well as various state income, inheritance and estate taxes.
Establish a Charitable Gift Annuity: This method of gifting benefits QVS upon your death while providing a fixed rate of income to you during your lifetime. Income payments to charitable gift annuity donors are often higher than those of other investments. When your charitable gift annuity is funded, the gift portion of your annuity is eligible for an immediate charitable tax deduction. The minimum gift to establish a gift annuity is $10,000. QVS has a working agreement with the Friends Fiduciary Corporation to establish gift annuities where QVS is the named beneficiary. Please contact us for more information on setting this up.
Connect with Us About Other Forms of Planned Gifts: QVS offers additional planned gift options ranging from gifts of life insurance, assets, and property, to the establishment of a charitable remainder trust. Contact us to explore other options for gifting to QVS.
