Gift of Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift to Detroit Public Television.

If you are like most people, you probably will not use all of your retirement assets during your lifetime. Make a gift and help further our mission.

Leave your retirement assets to us

Did you know that 60%-65% of your retirement assets may be taxed if you leave them to your heirs at your death? Another option is to leave your heirs assets that receive a step up in basis (such as real estate and stock) and give the retirement assets to Detroit Public Television. As a charity, we are not taxed upon receiving an IRA or other retirement plan assets.

How to transfer your retirement assets

Your retirement assets may be transferred to Detroit Public Television by completing a beneficiary designation form provided by your plan custodian. If you designate Detroit Public Television as beneficiary, we will benefit from the full value of your gift because your IRA assets will not be taxed at your death. Your estate will benefit from an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift.
