Planned Giving

Including the National Federation of the Blind in your future or estate plans is a thoughtful way to transform dreams into reality for future generations. In leaving a legacy gift, you will become a part of our Dream Makers Circle and you will make a real and lasting difference in the lives of blind Americans.

Ways to Leave a Legacy Gift

Fixed Sum of Assets

You can specify that a fixed sum of your assets or property goes to the National Federation of the Blind in your will, pension, IRA, or other accounts.

Percentage of Assets

You can specify that a percentage of your assets or property goes to the National Federation of the Blind in your will, pension, IRA, or other accounts.

Beneficiary

You can name the National Federation of the Blind as a beneficiary of your assets in your will, trust, pension, IRA, life insurance policy, brokerage account, or other accounts.

Contingent or Residuary Beneficiary

You can name the National Federation of the Blind as a contingent or residuary beneficiary. A contingent beneficiary only receives a gift if those who are primary beneficiaries do not or cannot accept for any reason. The residuary of your estate is anything that is left after specific primary gifts are honored.

POD Account

You can visit your bank and name the National Federation of the Blind as the beneficiary on a payable on death (POD) account. You can turn any current checking or savings account into a POD account or open a new account. This is one of the simplest ways to leave a legacy. The account is totally in your control during your lifetime and you can change the beneficiary or percentage at any time.
