Transferable on Death (TOD) Gifts

Transferable on Death (TOD) Gifts
Harold and Jeanne married after meeting at a community event for one of their favorite charitable organizations. They wanted to leave a legacy gift that would support the mission of the organization and ensure that they remain financially strong well into the future.

Harold: Jeanne and I have always felt a strong connection to the organization and their work. Over the years we have seen the organization grow and help so many people. We wanted to make sure that they have the means to continue to grow for years to come.

Jeanne: We talked to our investment advisor about planning goals and explained that we wanted to support one of our favorite charitable organizations. Our advisor suggested a simple solution — naming organization as a beneficiary of one of our mutual funds.

Michael, who was Harold and Jeanne's investment advisor, suggested that Harold and Jeanne use a "transferable on death" or "TOD" form. Michael explained that because Harold and Jeanne jointly owned the account, the TOD beneficiary designation form would ensure that they can benefit from the mutual fund during their joint lives, that the survivor of the two of them would continue to own the mutual fund for the rest of the survivor's life, and that after both pass away, the mutual fund would be transferred to charity. Michael provided the proper TOD beneficiary designation form, and Harold and Jeanne were easily able to complete the paperwork before they left Michael's office.

Jeanne: We really liked Michael's idea. Making a TOD gift was simple to set up and will let us continue to use the mutual fund to meet our needs in retirement.

Harold: I like knowing that if I pass away, Jeanne will have enough to meet her needs. We both like knowing that one of our favorite charitable organizations will receive the mutual fund after both of us pass away. We couldn't be happier with our giving strategy.
