Consider making a planned giving or legacy gift to GCCA.

You can gift a portion or all of your estate to Greater Chinatown Community Association (GCCA) through your will or trust.

There are several ways to structure your planned giving gift:

Specific Bequest: In your will, you specify a dollar amount or a specific item of property that you leave to the: 

Greater Chinatown Community Association, Inc. [tax ID number 13-2730313.], a 501c3 charitable organization located at 6 Doyers Street, Unit 130306, New York, NY 10013, to be used for program and/or administration purposes at its discretion.   

Residuary Bequest: After all other asset distributions, you bequeath the remainder of your estate to GCCA. 

Contingent Bequest: You can designate GCCA as a contingent beneficiary in case of a certain event. For example, “I give 10% of my estate to [specific person], if he/she survives me – or, if not, to GCCA.”

Other ways of supporting GCCA:

Life Insurance. You can make GCCA a beneficiary of either an existing policy or a new policy that you purchase for this purpose. In either case, a portion of your premiums may be immediately tax deductible.

Retirement assets, such as Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and 401(k)s can be the most tax-burdened assets to leave to your heirs, making them ideal for charitable giving.

Bank and Brokerage Accounts.  You can name GCCA as the “transfer on death (TOD)” or “pay on death (POD)” beneficiary for all or a percentage of a bank account, brokerage account, or a certificate of deposit.
