    Retirement Assets Gifts

    The easiest way to include SWE in you中国福利彩票下载安装αppr estate plan is through making a gift from you中国福利彩票下载安装αppr retirement assets - 401(k), 403 (b), IRA, etc. If these funds are designated to a beneficiary that is not you中国福利彩票下载安装αppr spouse they will be subject to estate tax and the recipients will have to pay income tax as they withdraw the funds. To avoid these tax implications, you中国福利彩票下载安装αpp can make SWE a beneficiary of you中国福利彩票下载安装αppr retirement plan. Since SWE is a tax exempt organization there will be no income tax due upon distribution.

    Making SWE the beneficiary of any or all of you中国福利彩票下载安装αppr retirement accounts is simple. The process requires you中国福利彩票下载安装αpp to you中国福利彩票下载安装αpp contact you中国福利彩票下载安装αppr plan administrator and request, fill out, and submit a form to change you中国福利彩票下载安装αppr beneficiary designations. You can make SWE a primary or a contingent beneficiary. Contingent beneficiaries will receive the funds if the primary beneficiary, (most often you中国福利彩票下载安装αppr spouse) passes away before you中国福利彩票下载安装αpp.

    Endow a Scholarship

    SWE - EFI (Society of Women Engineers - Endowment Fund Incorporated) operates as SWE’s Board of Trustees and manages all endowed scholarships. The minimum gift to establish an endowment is $25,000. To cover ongoing administrative and investments costs, there is a one-time fee of 10% that is requested in addition to the endowed principal of any gift (for example, for a principal gift of $25,000 the fee would be $2,500 for a total gift of $27,500).

    An endowed gift is maintained in perpetuity and spending is based on revenues generated from the investment of the original gift amount. On an initial endowment for a minimum amount of $25,000, SWE-EFI strives to distribute scholarships each year in the amount of $1,000 after the endowed funds have been invested for at least 12 months. If a gift over $25,000 is made, the amount available for distribution for a single or multiple scholarships is proportionally higher.

    In many cases, an individual elects to endow a scholarship in their name through a bequest or a scholarship is endowed in honor of an individual by family members and friends. Once an endowed scholarship is established in honor of an individual, SWE-EFI includes their biographical information in an Endowed Scholarship Booklet.
