Planned gifts are generated out of assets rather than current income, and can be made in a number of ways to benefit the donor and his/her family as well as RSSAA. These gifts will be the backbone for the financial security of the School in the long term. The most common planned gift is a bequest. Because there are many vehicles for donating a planned gift and the choices can be complex, these decisions should be made in consultation with the donor’s attorney, financial advisor and RSSAA’s legal representative when appropriate. The easiest and most tax effective way to leave money to the Rudolf Steiner School of Ann Arbor is by designating RSSAA as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k) or other qualified retirement account.
