Estate Planning


Enhance our fisheries and your retirement

By designating the Northwest Steelheaders as a beneficiary of your estate, you join a growing number of like-minded visionaries creating a visible legacy that confirms your enduring commitment to enhancing our fisheries and protecting our fish runs. Small or large estate, philanthropic-minded people can reduce taxes and leave more for both family members and their favorite charitable organizations.

The easiest way to donate assets is to designate the Steelheaders as a beneficiary in your will or living trust. You can specify either a defined percentage or a specific dollar amount. For those in a position to make gifts now, it’s possible to realize significant income tax savings. Strategic gifting of appreciated, and therefore highly taxed, retirement assets may reduce, even eliminate taxes.

Types of assets that can be donated include life insurance, common stocks, IRAs , property, annuities, and retirement plans.
