Partners for the Future

We invite you to become a partner in the struggle for tolerance and justice.

Partners for the Future are dedicated supporters of the Southern Poverty Law Center who are committed to leaving a legacy of tolerance and justice by including SPLC in their estate plans, or making a planned gift. Our Partners stand boldly with us, fusing their personal beliefs with the SPLC’s mission of tolerance and justice. 
Their legacies will extend far beyond their lifetimes and will fuel the changes needed for that “more perfect world” we all want for future generations.

Planned Giving creates a tangible personal statement. It also ensures the organization's future while enhancing your financial plans and security. With careful planning, it is possible to reduce or eliminate income and estate taxes while turning appreciated assets into an income for yourself or others.

Through a planned gift, you may:

   1. Increase current income for yourself or your designated beneficiary;
   2. Reduce income tax liability;
   3. Avoid capital gains tax;
   4. Pass assets on to your family and pay less tax;

Types of planned giving:

A Charitable Gift Annuity is a simple contract between you and the Southern Poverty Law Center that allows you to donate cash or securities and receive fixed annual payments for life.
A Charitable Remainder Trust provides substantial financial and tax benefits for the donor, as well as significant gifts to the SPLC.
Life Insurance can be a convenient way to make a substantial gift to the Southern Poverty Law Center for a relatively modest annual cost.
The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 extended the popular “IRA Rollover” through the end of 2013. If you are age 70 1/2 or older and own an IRA (traditional or Roth), you can make a charitable gift, up to $100,000 for each taxpayer, directly from your IRA to the SPLC. It can completely bypass your income for this year, and what’s more, it can count as your required minimum distribution.
