Planned Giving

Have you ever wished you could support Special Olympics New Mexico and improve your financial security at the same time? How is this possible? By taking advantage of incentives the IRS provides, you can craft a gift that delivers exactly the benefits to us, and to you, that you have been looking for.

Consider leaving a legacy gift to ensure that our work empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities to become physically fit, productive and respected members of society through sports training, and competition continues long into the future. See the Boundless Giving brochure that outlines the most common ways you can show your support of Special Olympics New Mexico through legacy giving. Financial advisers call these creative techniques “planned gifts” because with thoughtful planning, you can turn personal giving challenges into win-win situations for you and for us.

Make the Gift of a Lifetime by Turning Retirement Accounts into Charitable Good

Speak to your estate planner, financial advisor or attorney about individual giving options. If no estate planning attorney or other recommendations emerge from friends or family, and you want to keep your sources local, contact the trust department of your bank. You may also find sources through two major national organizations: the State Bar of New Mexico and the National Association of Estate Planners and Councils (www.naepc.org).
