Make a planned gift and leave a lasting legacy. With a planned gift you can provide continuing support for Tech, while accomodating your own personal, financial, and philanthropic goals. Legacy gifts provide you with tax benefits while securing the financial needs of your loved ones and making a real, longlasting impact on Tech.
IRA Charitable Rollover
An IRA charitable rollover (qualified charitable deduction or QCD) is a wonderful, tax-smart way to support Brooklyn Technical High School. The charitable rollover allows you to donate up to $100,000 each year to a qualifying charity like the Brooklyn Tech Alumni Foundation without incurring income tax on your withdrawal.
Your gift goes to work immediately providing enhanced learning opportunities for today’s Technites.
How it works at a glance:
- You must be 70 ½ or older to make your gift
- Gifts must come directly from your IRA to the Alumni Foundation
- Gifts cannot exceed $100,000 in any one year
- A QCD can help meet your required minimum distribution
We would gladly help you work with your IRA administrator on distribution forms.

When you gift appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds, you receive an immediate income tax deduction for the security value at the time of transfer. Any embedded gains on the security will be passed directly to the Alumni Foundation tax free, but will receive a charitable tax deduction for the security’s current value.
Bequeath a specific dollar amount or percentage of your assets after you’ve provided for your family to the Alumni Foundation. Your assets remain in your control all your life and you can revise your plan at any time should circumstances change. There are many types of bequests so you can choose the one that best fits your needs and intentions.
Name the Alumni Foundation as a full or partial beneficiary. You can reduce or eliminate estate and income taxes on assets in the account or policy.
