(Specific to U.S. residents.) Individuals 70 ½ and older may transfer up to $100,000 per year directly from an IRA to ASF, known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution. Contact your IRA plan custodian to make a gift directly from your IRA to ASF.  Note: While gifts from your IRA do not qualify for a charitable deduction, they do count towards your Required Minimum Distribution and are not subject to personal income taxation.

Donating appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual funds is a quick and easy way to support ASF today. You may be able to save on taxes twice – income tax and capital gains tax – allowing you to make a larger donation than with cash to fund your gift. While gifts of publicly traded stock are the most common, you can also give restricted or closely held stock under the right circumstances.

Please contact Kathy Finniemore at (506) 529-1387 or email kfinniemore@asf.ca ca for instructions.

Planned giving is one of the most impactful ways you can support the Atlantic Salmon Federation’s mission. Becoming a member of the Royal Wulff Society will provide you with the confidence that ASF’s mission will continue for generations to come. Planned gifts are used to sustain the mission of ASF to help ensure the future of wild Atlantic salmon by investing in ASF’s Endowment Fund, unless otherwise designated.

If you have already included ASF in your estate planning, please let us know so that we can welcome you as our newest member of the Royal Wulff Society.

Bequests are the most common type of planned gift received by ASF. Bequests can be designated or undesignated, according to your wishes and the priorities of ASF. A bequest can be specific, conditional, or residual.

Please contact Andrew Goode at (207) 725-2546 ext. 1 or email to receive sample bequest language.

One of the simplest and most tax-wise ways to include ASF in your estate planning is through your retirement plan. Using retirement assets to make a gift while leaving other assets to your heirs results in a reduced tax burden to your estate or heirs.

Life insurance policies are another simple way to designate ASF as a primary or contingent beneficiary. Completing a beneficiary designation form requires minimal paperwork and often can be accomplished directly through your plan or policy provider’s website.
