Legacy Giving Details

  • To add Headwaters as a beneficiary in your will, estate plan, or as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, include our full name and ID number: Headwaters Foundation for Justice, tax ID number 36-3359386.
  • If you want to restrict your gift to a specific purpose, please contact us so we fully understand your intent for how you’d like us to use your generous gift.
  • Let us know if you've named Headwaters as a beneficiary of a legacy gift because we want to list you in our growing circle of friends and supporters.
  • By naming Headwaters as a beneficiary of all or part of a life insurance policy, IRA, or qualified retirement plan, you can avoid income and estate taxes while supporting Headwaters. Special note to donors over 70 and 1/2: you may transfer up to $100,000 in IRA assets directly to Headwaters without recognizing any federal taxable income. A charitable distribution doesn't limit any of your other giving. Because the charitable distribution generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, even non-itemizers can benefit. Special circumstances apply—please contact us for information and seek the advice of your tax or legal counsel before taking action.
