An estate or planned gift is a great way to make a Legacy for yourself and provide help and hope for individuals impacted by brain injury. There are many options to make a Legacy gift, and all are simple.
Inform your family of your wishes for memorial donations to the Brain Injury Association of Missouri (BIA-MO). If possible, include the BIA-MO mailing address (2265 Schuetz Rd, St. Louis, MO 63146) and website of www.biamo.org in the obituary notice. Pre-addressed envelopes can be available at funeral-related services, upon request.
Include the Brain Injury Association of Missouri in your Will, as a benefactor. Your donation can be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder of your estate. A bequest is an excellent option to provide for your loved ones, as well as make a donation to
BIA-MO, since you define the distribution of your estate.
To ensure your donation to the Brain Injury Association of Missouri is allocated as intended, include the BIA-MO Employer Identification Number (EIN) of 43-1264556 and our address in your Will.
Life Insurance Beneficiary
List the Brain Injury Association of Missouri as a beneficiary in a life insurance policy. This planned giving option can be an affordable way to make a significant gift to BIA-MO since you decide the premium payment amount that fits into your budget. The life insurance policy can be a new or existing policy.
When the policy benefits are paid, your donation will then be received by the Brain Injury Association of Missouri. Our EIN of 43-1264556 and the address of BIA-MO (2265 Schuetz Rd, St. Louis, MO 63146) should be included in the life insurance policy beneficiary section.
Discuss your Legacy of Life planned gift with family members and your attorney. Besides memorial designated gifts, your attorney or estate planner will need to be involved with writing your planned gift to the Brain Injury Association of Missouri, except for Tribute Gifts.
