Leave a Living Legacy

Our generous and big-hearted benefactors have numerous ways to support our mission with their financial gifts. Learn about our various planned giving options below!

01 – BEQUESTS
Help your legacy live on with a charitable gift as part of your estate plan. To leave Nexus a gift in your will, please consider the following language:
 
Unrestricted Gift: “I give and bequeath to Nexus Recovery Center, Dallas, TX, the sum of _____ dollars ($) or _____ percent (%) of my estate, to be used for such uses and purposes as its governing body shall deem appropriate.”
 
Restricted Gift: I gift and bequeath to Nexus Recovery Center, Dallas, TX, the sum of _____ dollars ($) or _____ percent (%) of my estate for the specific purpose of __________ (describe program, for example, “Survivor Program”) or for such uses and purposes as its governing body shall deem appropriate if said program is not then in existence.”
 
NOTE: Our EIN is 23-7169388.
 
 
 
 
02 – REMAINIED TRUSTS
Different types of valuable assets may be sold through a charitable remainder trust to provide payments for life – or a period up to 20 years – to the creator of the trust. When the trust later terminates, the trust assets can be used to benefit Nexus.
 
Generally, the sale of valuable assets through a charitable remainder trust delays and sometimes eliminates the capital gains tax on any appreciation… and reduces or avoids estate and gift taxes. Please consult your legal, tax, or financial advisor.
 
NOTE: Our EIN is 23-7169388.
 
 
 
03 – LEAD TRUSTS
Valuable assets may be put in a trust that provides an annual payout to one or more charities for the term of the trust. At the end of the trust term, the remaining property in the trust is distributed to family members of the creator’s family. Please consult your legal, tax, or financial advisor.
 
NOTE: Our EIN is 23-7169388.
 
 
 
04 – LIFE INSURANCE
For those who find themselves over-insured, Nexus may be named as a beneficiary – but not the owner – of a life insurance policy. Please consult your legal, tax, or financial advisor.
 
NOTE: Our EIN is 23-7169388.

07 – RETIREMENT ACCOUNTS
Individual Retirement Accounts and qualified retirement plans are assets that continue to be a growing source of accumulated wealth… and that are highly taxed at death. Naming Nexus as the beneficiary for some or all of the account may enable an avoidance of both income and estate taxation. Please consult your legal, tax, or financial advisor.
