Support Textbook & Academic Authoring

Make a Big Impact With a Future Gift

When you include the Textbook & Academic Authors Association in your estate plan, your generosity ensures that textbook and academic authors will receive support well into the future.

For those who have greatly benefitted from the resources that TAA provides, planned giving represents a way to leave a lasting legacy to the association. Charitable bequests also reduce the size of your estate and reduce estate taxation.

WillsInclude a Gift to TAA in Your Will or Trust

Gift TAA a specific amount or percentage of your estate in your will. View bequest language and other information about making a bequest to TAA.

Life InsuranceName TAA a Beneficiary of Your Life Insurance Policy

Designate TAA as the primary beneficiary for a percentage or specific amount of your life insurance policy. You can also make us the contingent beneficiary so that we will receive the balance of your policy only if your primary beneficiary doesn't survive you. You qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize on your taxes. If you continue to pay premiums on the policy, each payment is tax deductible as a charitable gift when you itemize.

There are numerous ways to creatively structure a planned gift. Consult your attorney and/or financial adviser to assure that the optimum benefits are realized for both you and TAA.

Please let us know if you have included us in your estate plans

If you have any questions, or to discuss making a gift, contact Kim Pawlak, TAA Executive Director, [email protected] or (507) 459-1363.
