Planned Giving
Make a planned gift commitment by including Ride Illinois in your will or living trust. Your gift to Ride Illinois can be a percentage of your estate, a fixed dollar amount, or an asset such as real estate. It can be as simple as adding one sentence to your will:

“I, [your name], give, devise, and bequeath to League of Illinois Bicyclists (dba Ride Illinois) with EIN 36-3823236, the amount of $XX [or, XX% of the residue of my estate], for its unrestricted use and purpose. The Executive Director has the authority to accept these gifts. All other gifts shall be reviewed by the Finance Committee before acceptance.”

Qualified Charitable Distributions from IRA
You can also name Ride Illinois as a beneficiary of your IRA or life insurance policy. Taxpayers age 70 ½ or older can make a qualified charitable distribution, up to $100,000, directly from their IRA, other than a SEP or SIMPLE IRA, to a qualified charitable organization. Learn about important charitable giving reminders on irs.gov.

We urge you to discuss these options with your attorney or licensed financial advisor before making a planned gift. Please inform us of your decision to include Ride Illinois in your estate plans by contacting Dave Simmons at dave@rideillinois.org or (630) 216-9282.
