Planned Giving

Planned giving serves as an advocacy of your legacy and paves the way for future ultrasound accomplishments. There are several ways to donate to the AIUM FUTURE Fund while effectively making charitable contributions, advocating for ultrasound, receiving tax deductions, and leaving more to your family and other beneficiaries.

  • Retirement Assets

     Support the future of ultrasound by naming the AIUM FUTURE Fund as a beneficiary of your retirement plan and dedicating a percentage of your retirement assets or its entirety to the FUTURE Fund. This includes IRAs, 401(k), and other qualified pension plans. In doing so, the remaining funds in your plan transfer to the AIUM FUTURE Fund tax-free.

  • Life Insurance Adding the AIUM FUTURE Fund as a beneficiary to a life insurance policy allows you to make a larger charitable gift than you might otherwise feel able to donate. Transfer your paid-up life insurance policy to the AIUM FUTURE Fund. In doing so, you provide the Fund access to cash in the policy upon receipt or hold the policy upon death.
  • Bequest

    Contribute to the AIUM FUTURE Fund either by gifting a specific dollar amount, an asset, or a portion of your estate through a will or living trust. Direct a portion of your assets to your heirs and a bequest to the FUTURE FUND for the purpose you specify. Making a bequest provision in your will or revocable trust, allows you to provide now for a future gift to the Fund.
