Types of Support
We applaud our annual donors as well as our extraordinary Society of Justice donors. Once donors meet certain lifetime giving levels, they are honored in the Foundation’s Justice or Liberty Legacy. Please see our online donation form to make a gift.
Endowment and Planned Giving
There are several ways to make a planned gift to the Foundation.
- Name the Foundation as a full or partial beneficiary of a life insurance policy
- Name the Foundation as a beneficiary of your retirement account
As 401(k) accounts and Individual Retirement Accounts have become the saving vehicle of choice for many Americans, tax-deferred accounts have become one of the largest assets many donors have to give to a favored charity. Unlike an individual beneficiary, a charity will not owe income taxes upon withdrawing the assets in the account.
- Name the Foundation in your will
I give $xxx to the South Carolina Bar Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit corporation qualified under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code, located in Columbia, South Carolina, to be used for its exempt purposes.
- Make a gift of an appreciated security
When you gift appreciated securities to the Foundation, you are able to deduct the market value of the stock at the time of the donation and the Foundation is able to sell the stock without paying capital gain taxes.
The Foundation is able to provide the necessary tax exemption information to your attorney and financial advisor. After making the decision to make a planned gift, please be sure to let us know so that we can thank you appropriately and showcase the excellent example you set for other members of the profession.
