ESTATE 

PLANNING

iPlanets Academy thanks you for your support

For many donors, it's important to ensure that they continue to help those who are doing the work that is very important to them continues after their lifetimes.

 

We work with individuals, families and professional advisors to establish funds through planned giving, so that charitable goals are honored into the future.

Estate planning finds ways to make charitable gifts while enjoying financial benefits for yourself.

 

Planned gifts require discussion with your professional advisers. Unlike cash donations, they are typically made from assets in your estate rather than disposable income, and either become operable now or as bequests upon your death.

A misconception is that gift planning is only for the "wealthy." The truth is, even people of modest means can make a difference through gift planning.

Some ways you can give this way is:

 

 Name the Community Foundation in your will or trust. A charitable bequest can specify dollar amount, a percentage of an estate or what remains after other bequests, including those to family members, are made.

 

This giving vehicle can be appealing to donors with appreciated assets, including real estate and securities.

 

They allow individuals to receive income – or provide income to another person – with the knowledge that the funds remaining when the trust terminates will be used to support their charitable interests.

 

There is also charitable lead trusts, which support charitable interests now while leaving remaining trust assets to the heirs.

 

Life insurance can be used as a charitable asset, making a donor eligible for a charitable tax deduction based on the current value of the paid-up policy. As an option, an individual can simply name iPLANETS ACADEMY as the beneficiary of part or all of the insurance proceeds.

 

Because they are heavily taxed, retirement fund assets from qualified plans or IRAs are ideal for charitable giving purposes.

 

They allow an individual to avoid income and estate tax while making a significant gift that will meet pressing needs in the local community.

We urge you to consult with your attorney or financial adviser before determining which planned giving instrument works best for you. We appreciate your generosity!

CHARITIES

ACCOUNTABILITY

iPlanets Academy uses Charity Navigator

The charities we support are because we have either received from them personally, believe in their cause, or in my case I personally worked there and saw the good that was done with the donations.

 

But if you would like to get some financial information on them to ensure your money is being used for the purpose they say then click on the picture above to take you to a site that provides information regarding charities, so you can donate confidently knowing what percentage of your donation actually goes to the cause for which you donate.

Family Dream Come True   iLOVE Donating.

iPLANETS ACADEMY SUPPORTS THE Salvation Army

I went through Hurricane Katrina and Rita. Was displaced to Dallas, Texas and lost everything but the clothes on my back. I had always been a long time supporter of Salvation Army USA. This time they helped me and so many more. They gave me $275. I purchased a car for $250 at the auction, $10 in used clothes from Goodwill and $15 in gas with it.

 

I drove to an interview and got the job as a store manager. The rest is history. But I never forgot how they helped me and all the other lives I saw touched by their selfless service and dedication to helping those in need.

I was in Winnie Palmer Hospital for over a month while on bedrest and Tre Boy was born at Arnold Palmer Hospital, which is one of the few level III NICU's in the country. He stayed in the NICU for two months while the doctors and nurses worked tirelessly to care for him. I credit them with helping to save his life.  Please consider donating to them by clicking on the picture above.

When Tre Boy was in the NICU for those two months. Ronald McDonald Charities offered me and my husband to stay for FREE at their facility housed across the street from Arnold Palmer hospital so we could be near our brand new baby.

 Although we did not take them up on their offer we saw so many families who were able to be with their children and newborns because of them. We never forgot that.

iPlanets Academy LOVES our Volunteers

We're using SIGN UP (the leading online Sign-up and reminder tool) to organize our upcoming

Sign-ups.

 

Here's how it works in 3 easy steps:

1) Click the picture below to see our available Sign-Ups.

2) Review the options listed and choose the spot(s) you like.

3) Sign up! It's THAT Easy! 

We feel blessed for the program and the opportunities we are able to offer. We also recognize the importance of teaching our children the value of giving back through service-learning opportunities both within our community and to our world.

Our purpose is to provide opportunities for parents to:

  • Learn – Get up-to-date information on issues and decisions affecting your child’s education. Guest speakers share information on topics pertinent to your child’s educational experience. Meetings also provide information on volunteer needs and opportunities.

  • Share – We must work together to help our children succeed. The Parent Monthly Facebook Meetups are a vehicle for sharing ideas on ways to improve your child(ren) educational experience. You can offer suggestions for supporting the activities we plan for the children. If you have concerns, we need to hear them as well so we can work to address them.

  • Serve – You can make a real difference by serving our homeschool community. We offer many volunteer opportunities. Some involve being on school grounds during homeschool hours, some are available after homeschool has ended, or in the Evening, and others can be done from the convenience of your own home. Whether you know it or not, you have a talent, and we can put it to good use.
