MN350 is powered by our community. Donors like you make it possible to maximize our volunteers’ energy and dedication as we build the climate justice movement in Minnesota and make our state a clean energy leader. Donate today to protect our future and prevent damage to our climate.
As a small nonprofit organization, our work is fueled by people like you who care about protecting our climate. Your commitment always inspires us to think big — because again and again, you show up big.
We know that we will need to continue battling the impacts of the damage already done to our climate for generations. You can leave a legacy of resilience and hope with a planned gift commitment through one or more of these options:
Making a bequest to MN350 allows you to retain your assets during your lifetime while leaving a generous legacy for the climate and for future generations. You can make a bequest by including a provision for MN350 in your will or trust. Bequests can include a percentage of your estate, a specific dollar amount, or property. Bequests can be changed by you at any time.
Leaving retirement assets (IRAs, life insurance policies, bank or brokerage accounts) to MN350 will allow the full value of your gift to benefit MN350 because they are free of income tax and estate tax. You can designate MN350 to receive a percentage, a specific dollar amount, or the entire account.
A charitable remainder trust generates a potential income stream for you or other beneficiaries, with the remainder of the donated assets going to MN350.
In order to set up a charitable remainder trust, you transfer cash, securities, real estate, or personal property to a trust. The trust will then automatically make payments to you and MN350 for the term of the trust. When the trust terminates, the remaining assets transfer to MN350.
Donating stock is a great way to support our work. Contact MN350’s Chief Financial Officer to learn more about donating stock.
If you are 70½ years old or older, the IRS requires that you take required minimum distributions (RMDs) from your IRA accounts each year. Contact your IRA administrator or MN350’s Chief Financial Officer to learn more.
A donor-advised fund is like a charitable investment account. You can make contributions and recommend grants to MN350 from your fund when you are a member of Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, or Thrivent Charitable. If you’re a member of another charitable investment account, please contact them or MN350’s Chief Financial Officer to set up a donor-advised fund benefiting MN350.
Many businesses have programs set up to match employee donations. Contact your employer to see if that is one of your benefits! Contact MN350’s Chief Financial Officer to get the information you need about MN350 to complete your matching gift.
