Every day, thousands of American athletes train to represent their country and community at the Olympic and Paralympic Games. They dream of becoming part of a movement that fosters peace, understanding and respect through sport—and establishing their legacy.
You can also cement your legacy in the Olympic and Paralympic movements by joining the Team USA Legacy Society. Legacy gifts provide future support for Team USA through financial and estate plans. The U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Foundation welcomes gifts made through several different planned giving arrangements.
These arrangements can:
Provide for you or your loved ones
Entitle you to charitable income and gift or estate tax deductions
Enable you to leave a legacy for Team USA
Choosing the right planned gift depends on your personal circumstances and financial goals.
Bequest & Estate Plan Gifts
You may make a bequest or gift through your estate by including a provision in your will or living trust, or by naming Team USA as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. The amount left to the USOPF (or any charity) can be expressed as a dollar amount or as a percentage of the assets to be given.
Life Income Gifts
A life income gift allows you to give assets to Team USA while supplying yourself or others with income for a period of time before Team USA is permitted to use your gift. You may make a life income gift by transferring securities, cash or other property to the USOPF, which will then manage your asset, giving income to you, your designated beneficiaries or both.
Considering A Planned Gift?
There are many ways you can support Team USA with a legacy gift. If you are considering a planned gift, you should consult with your own legal and tax advisers.
