Cavalier Legacy recognizes forward-thinking donors who choose to support Virginia Athletics through financial or estate planning. With planned gifts, donors may be able to make a greater impact than they thought possible during their lifetime.
Planned gifts to VAF may include:
1. Plans from your estate
Bequests are gifts you establish through your estate plans. These plans include naming VAF as a beneficiary of your will or living trust, retirement plan or life insurance.
2. Plans that pay you an income
You make a gift to the Virginia Athletics Foundation and receive income for your life or for the lives of the beneficiaries you choose. These plans include Charitable Gift Annuities and Charitable Remainder Trusts.
3. Plans that help Virginia Athletics now and your family later
Income from a gift you make for a specified period of time is used to benefit Virginia Athletics, and then the remainder is returned to you or your heirs. This plan is called a Charitable Lead Trust.
4. Life insurance policies
Transferring ownership of a life insurance policy you no longer need or funding a new policy to support athletics are also excellent ways to make a gift.
