Transferable on Death (TOD) Gifts
Jeanne: We talked to our investment advisor about planning goals and explained that we wanted to support this cause for years to come through our charitable giving fund at the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines. Our advisor suggested a simple solution naming our charitable giving fund at the Community Foundation as a beneficiary of one of our mutual funds.
Harold: I like knowing that if I pass away, Jeanne will have enough to meet her needs. We both like knowing that the Community Foundation will receive the mutual fund after both of us pass away and carry out our charitable wishes. We couldn't be happier with our giving strategy.
