Create a Legacy for Appraisal Education

Leaving a gift to the ASA Educational Foundation or the NAIFA Education & Research Trust in your will or by beneficiary designation is a great way in invest in the future of appraisal education and make a lasting difference for the valuers of tomorrow.

How You Benefit

  • You decide how much to give – no gift is too small.
  • Your gift costs you nothing now.
  • You retain control of your assets during your lifetime and, if your circumstances change, you can modify the gift.
  • You may choose to keep your gift anonymous.
  • You can leave a gift in honor or memory of someone who inspired your commitment to education.
  • You will be remembered as someone who made our profession better for valuers today and for future generations.

Choose the Right Gift for You

1. Make a difference simply by signing your name as a beneficiary to any of these types of accounts:

    • Retirement Accounts
    • Life Insurance Policies
    • Bank or Brokerage Accounts
    • Certificates of Deposit
    • Donor Advised Funds
    2. Make the most of your IRA

    If you are over age 70 1/2, you can save on income tax when making donations to qualified charities, such as the ASA Educational Foundation or the NAIFA Education & Research Trust, directly from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA).

    3. Include a gift in your will

    Leave a gift that costs you nothing now. You can take care of your family first, and include the ASA Educational Foundation or the NAIFA Education & Research Trust to receive a specific amount or percentage of your estate. Or, name us a contingent beneficiary, so future valuers are next in line after your loved ones.
